I think you have picked the right time of year. The weather should be mild and the number of vacationing tourist should be low.
Visiting the Cinque Terre should be a highpoint. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cinque_Terre
I would consider taking a passenger ferry and return to you starting point. It's an easy and economical way to return to Genoa.
I'm also concerned that cycling the Amalfi coast might be hazardous. It's a beautiful area but the road between Sorrento and Amalfi is death-defying in a car and a bigger concern on a bike.
When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.
