I am looking for a small town to stay for a bicycle vacation next summer. The weather must cool temperatures under 82 f. Very good riding roads, low traffic or very good shoulders, with miles of road bike routes.

I currently vacation in Buena Vista, Colorado for a few weeks each summer. This is a small town, with bike access to leadville, and cottonwood pass, independence pass and Poncha pass. Great riding. The weather is 56 f to 82 f, with very low humidity.

Looking for some place different to go.

When you find it, can I vacation with you and your wife?

You might like the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. www.exploringthenorth.com/keweenaw/map.html
You could tour the complete U.P. in a couple weeks.

I agree; Bar Harbor Maine. There's miles and miles of carriage roads in the park that I hear are packed with great scenery.

Mt Washington and the surrounding White Mountains of New Hampshire. Not in the wintertime.

A rider on FB wrote a article about his visit there. He went when the trees were colorful and said it was picturesque. I've googled it on Google Maps and Hwy 16....I'd die to ride that road.

I'd recommend Fort Collins, CO. Miles & miles of paved trails. Outside of town you can tackle the foothills of the Rockies and you're only an hour from the actual mountains. Bonus: nearly 20 microbreweries!!!
