The southern region of the United States is blessed with some truly amazing cycling destinations. With terrain and topography ranging anywhere from steep mountains to low delta plains, it's difficult to choose a favorite. But here are 3 of our favorites:
1. Charleston, SC to Savannah, GA
This 106-mile stretch of road takes riders through some of the very best aspects of the coastal lowcountry, full of ancient oaks, drooping Spanish moss, salty air, and charming towns.
2. Mount Mitchell
Whether participating in the annual Assault on Mt. Mitchell on May 19th, or opting for the shorter 27-mile route starting from Marion, NC, summitting the tallest mountain in the eastern U.S. is one of the most epic things you can do on two-wheels.
3. Willow City Loop
This 30-mile route, with its rolling Texas Hill Country backroads and colorful seas of wildflowers, is one of the most breathtaking bike rides in the Lone Star State.
