With winter setting in RBR has been pretty quiet with a much lower volume of good posts. Where are good spots to winter? Cycling/sport specific or otherwise.
Florida, southern California, south of Spain, Hawaii . . .Look381i

are the usual suggestions. I live in central Georgia, less expensive to live and allows year-round riding, but the winters can have some cold (for us) days. For example, today's ride will be in the 40s, tomorrow's in the 50s and Monday's in the 60s.

Southern Florida is fun for winters. Cheap living down here as well, and the...hmmm...scenery is good year around too :)

Usually in the 70-80 all fall and winter than starts warming up in the spring and brutal summers. Yeah there aren't any mountains, but you would be surprised at how much a strong head wind and some causeways/bridges will help get your HR going. The wind usually picks up during the fall and you get wind almost all winter. Plus you can start racing in Feb. Plane tickets are $250-$400 from almost anywhere in the country.
SoCal is usually a good bet...fracisco

SoCal is usually a good bet, but I think that we're going to have a wet winter. It still will rarely get to the 50's F, but it's no fun riding in the rain.

It is in the low to mid 60's today, here at the beach. The group ride had about 40 people or so, and it's a bit slower at this time of the year, too.
DC is pretty nice. nmMB1

We're lucky to get snow for 3 days out of the year, temps rarely get to freezing. If you don't mind a little rain, you can't go wrong! Beautiful scenery, (relatively) nice drivers, hills, flats... we even have a velodrome for you, Nick!!

Victoria is home to the national rowing and triathlon teams as well.
