Hiking or biking but not getting eaten by bears

I'm looking for a break from tech-life and have a friend who recently solo thru-biked the Colorado Trail. I'm on the east coast, but would love to do something similar.

The Appalachian Trail seems like the go-to answer for this, but it's a little more time than I have to play with - something between 2 days and a week would be better, both for my work schedule and sanity. I think I'd prefer biking to hiking.
As far as myself: I'm in good shape, and run a bit (around 300mi so far this year). I bike daily, and have mountain biking experience. I don't a lot of camping experience, but know the basics.
