It will probably be tough to do with limiting yourself to 50 miles. I think in certain areas, i.e. between New Roads and Natchez. You may need to camp and/or deviate significantly if you stick to the 50 mile limit and/or want to avoid heavy traffic. While it should be above 50F along the coast, it may or may not be as you go north especially during when a cold front (which will bring rain) pulls through. Check out WeatherSpark.com for the weather averages for most places in the world. Obviously, those are averages so the temps can easily be 15 degrees +/- from the average but WeatherSpark shows the chances of being in that range. Dogs should be OK but carry some Halt! (a dog repellent the USPS uses) if you feel concerned. Just don't spray it into the wind so it can blow back onto you. For traffic counts, check out the state's AADT maps (average annual daily traffic count) to get an idea. You can also see if the state has bike maps which often show shoulders and/or traffic counts.

Hope you have a great ride! John
