If you are in the U.S. where do you go during December, January, February, and March? Does everyone really go to places like Arizona? Are there places bike touring folks seem to migrate the most during winter months if you stay mainland without dealing with the cold at all? What does that look like exactly?
Not many spots in USA that don't get cold sometimes. I've been in central/coastal Florida when it was 38 F & raining. I think the main thing is to avoid snow. In dry weather, 40's can be quite pleasant for cycling. Short winter days give less daylight for riding though. With an open schedule I guess that's tolerable but one gets less touring for the time/money than in the other 3 seasons.
