Where to ride in late April
I am looking for a place to tour in late April for about 2 weeks.
My first thought was to do a loop out of St. George, UT. But, I'm concerned about the weather and snow on the ground, especially in the canyons and the higher elevations as the loop would involve going up and over Cedar Breaks (11,000 feet).
I have no interest in SF to LA as I've done that half a dozen times already. I've ridden from San Diego to Phoenix on the Southern Tier and can say that riding for days through the desert isn't all that exciting. This is why riding through the Southern California deserts isn't on the list of destinations.
After reading the Arizona during Spring Break thread
, I got to wondering about Arizona, New Mexico, West Texas, and Moab. I'd like to stay north of the border and not spend all the time in the desert.
Does anyone have any recommendations for places to tour in late April in these or other areas?
