I spent two weeks training in Elon, NC in Feb two years ago, no climbing to speak of but great roads for getting miles and more importantly Elon College is one of the top 10 party schools as rated by Playboy. Its deserved.

Weather around here is very touch and go in Feb/March. Especially if you're considering up north towards the Mountains (Asheville/Boone), where it can be 60F one day and snowing the next.

There's not much climbing to speak of in most of the Carolinas unless you tend towards the western borders of the states where they brush the Blue Ridge mountains. Again, get into the mountains and you're talking about very tempermental weather.

I will second the suggestion that you consider a little further south, i.e. Georgia, or push back towards late march into early April.

Found this online for mount mitchell- It is also the coldest average reporting station in the state at 43.8°F or 6.6°C :shock: which is well below any other station. Unlike the lower elevations in the surrounding regions, heavy snows often fall from December to March, with 50 inches (127 cm) accumulating in the Great Blizzard of 1993. The summit is often windy, with the record being 286 km/h or 178 MPH. :shock: Be careful with aero wheels fellas!
The record low there is -34F, but I think my -70F was calculation the windchill. Its still long johns weather, though! :lol:

Just be prepared in early spring. I have been snowed on with 2" accumulation in APRIL in Myrtle Beach! :shock: So you never know what will happen.

Is this Weight Weenies?

Just trying to help some weenies going riding in a nice place. Edited out previous ranting :lol:

Oh yeah, If you are looking for the ultimate ethereal experience- Get a spare MTB, get a buddy to drive you to one of the 3 access points to the "closed" Blue Ridge Parkway Between Asheville and Mount Mitchell after a good snowfall, but before its icy. Have them meet you at hwy. 70 in Asheville. You will never view landscapes the same i promise.

Your link has the average daily high (peak afternoon temp) and average daily low (coldest at night).

If you want the daily averages, just click on "daily averages" in the scroll down tool, and then select your month when the screen refreshes. The months are links and will show the average daily high and low for each day of the month, based on historical data.

The average daily high/low/avg. temp in February, for example, goes from 51/27/39 on the 1st of February to 56/31/44 on the 28th.

Like any other climate the average temps are usually in the mid-morning and mid-evening, the highs in the mid-afternoon (2-3pm) and the coldest just before the sun rises in the morning.

Are people only allowed to weigh their light bikes, or ride them as well?

Just sayin'. Maybe some people just like to look at them on scales. I'm not one of them.

Don't get me wrong.

My bikes are still uci legal, what I''m trying to say is that WW is not the best place on the net to discuss such topics.
