Will your e-bike have special electric charging requirements? I think anyplace with a 120V plugs will be able to charge the battery. As a backup you could carry a small solar charger.

Check the Tour de Rouge route maps. The TDR goes from Houston to New Orleans.

You might check the East Coast Greenway website. This section is part of the greenway. I rode it in May 2017 and there were several places south of Marathon where I rode on the highway. Of course, the 7 mile bridge is on the shoulder which isn't too narrow.

Checkout the Pedalshift podcast. The creator did a trip like this last year and recorded several episodes about the ride.

The Bike to the Beach MS150 has not happened for several years. I suspect the reason was sponsorship changes by HEB. Looking at this heat map may help you see where other cyclists ride.

You could follow the MS150 route. They don't camp out but the roads would be the same.

Streamline Cycles rents a wide variety of bicycles. Maybe they have what you need. Also some people buy a bike on Craigslist, use it and then sell it when they are finished.

Routes / Re: Southern Tier in January of February?

I live in Houston. January and February can vary quite a bit with some days in the 70's and others in the 30's or 40's. If you go to the Texas Rio Grand Valley it can be warmer. Look at some of the journals at www.crazyguyonabike.dom for ideas on what they encountered. Another option might be the East Coast Greenway. Start in Jacksonville FL and ride to Key West. It should be warm there.
