Mr Destroyer is your man. I am sure he will be happy to assist in a plot since his home is there.
However, your destination and routes will look quite flat and lifeless compared to coming to Atlanta and riding through the N. GA Mountains in route to North Carolina and Tennessee. We have a great bike rental location in Dahlonega, GA and you could squeeze the Dragon's Tail and Cherohola Skyway into less than three days if you are pressed for time. Not to mention the trip around Blood Mountain in Suches, GA in route to the other destinations.
But Florida is nice if you're not worried about curvey, high altitude riding.

"High Altitude" is relative to Florida - but the curves aren't.

NOTHING like Appalachia for curvy roads. Never a disappointment. Unless you're doing it in Winter - then you're too damned cold to be disappointed......

Like the boys said, FL is as flat as a pancake so don't expect mountains or curves. The ride from Miami to Key West would be a beauty though.

You could also head north up to St Augustine and maybe Lake Okeechobee.

April might be good timing because love bug season starts shortly after.

I'll send you a PM with my contact information. There are some great roads once you get past the Everglades area and into Central and North Florida.

And even better ones if you just stay on the highway until you're North of Atlanta......

Pre-Menstrual. When someone says "I'll send you a PM," it means they want to yell at you for leaving your socks on the bed instead of putting them in the hamper.

Prime Minster: When someone says "I'll send you a PM," you can expect the leader of a parlimentary-rule government to arrive shortly.

Post Mortem: When someone says "I'll send you a PM," it means you will die soon.

Private Message: When someone says "I'll send you a PM," you should click on User CP and New Messages, because the sender doesn't want to post his phone number where the Obama-haters can get it.
