just remember this is YOUR trip, go where ever YOU want. i live in the northeast and have ridden all over new england/new york and lived in Delaware (DW i assume you meant DE). i loved de but not for riding, for living...it is all flat. it does have a beautiful coastline but in the summer at the expense of tons of traffic! may i suggest (might be far) but the NH/Maine coast. with some dips inland. maine is beautiful riding and if you go inland a bit you have so awesome mountain rides! now if you are looking to swim then stay southerly visit the mid atlantic maybe assateague island in md/va and go southerly. but wherever the bike takes you have fun!
