Georgia is generally pretty mild during March and April, and if you live on the East Coast and want to get away for a spring break mountain bike trip, but you still want to ride in the mountains, North Georgia is about as far south as you can get. However, be sure to keep an eye on the forecast: Georgia can still get pretty chilly, especially in early March, and a storm can sweep in and drop rain for a week without respite. If you do nail a sunny patch, though, you’re golden!
