As you indicated you would consider options other than Fld, the Southwest can be good touring country in December. No rain likely, temps usually moderate, and low humidity. I'm sorta familiar with the Tuscon, AZ area. Look into a DIY routing south of there to old west Tombstone, about 100 miles. The roads are good and not real busy. Kartchner Carverns State Park is in the area. Real nice place. Hope to do it myself one day.
The bicycle is one of the great inventions of mankind. Delights children, challenges young men to feats of daring, and turns old men into boys again.--Me
