To be fair, VA has some real **** weather in the winter, as well as certain parts of the Carolinas and Georgia. If you are truly going to "snowbird" follow the rest down to Florida. Anything South of the Ocala-ish region is SUPER nice during the winter and there are loads of good trails to ride. Of course, your cold tolerance may make for some leeway there. Georgia typically doesn't deal with snow much once you are South of Atlanta, even a little bit North of there it's rare. Our most common serious snowfall historically has been in March/April.

I would mention in regard to the Beltline. It is a super cool resource, but the only time it's suitable for a decent bike ride on the East side and part of the North is during week business hours. The West and Southern part are typically good just about any time. The Eastside Beltline is the most popular and populous. During nice evenings and weekends there is barely room to walk much less actually "ride" a bike. Jerk offs like to walk 3-4 abreast and talk like the self important prigs they are and block the pathway regardless of other users desire. Mix in with that the "Tour de Trail" jerks, the skateboarders, the dog walkers, and those damned E scooters...just best to stay away at those times. Late in the evenings on nice nights is dodge a drunk, if you are into that.
