A few years ago I was biking in North Carolina, around the area north of Charlotte, on a pretty regular basis. Here are a few of my favorite bike routes in that area. Of them all, the area surrounding Lake Norman State Park is really beautiful. You can park in the park, bike around the area, bike up to the town of Statesville for lunch and then bike back to the park. For a really full day, there’s boat rental at the park too.
Davidson is also a really cute town. Home to Davidson College, it has lots of restaurants, cafes and ice cream shops, as well as a bike shop if you need one.
