We're biking from Rome to Naples, do you know good places to stay or eat in between?

In about a month, a friend and I will be bicycling from Rome to Naples and hopefully taking a train back. From the maps I've looked at there seem to be 2-3 easy routes to take that should be 3 days of easy riding. Since we don't have to do that many miles in a day, so I'm wondering what little towns in between are worth seeing? Which would be more likely to have places to stay (inexpensively), and be more tourist friendly? Also any food tips, things to definitely see, things to definitely miss, and any other general information appreciated.

It depends somewhat on the route that you're taking. If you go along the coastline, there are plenty of small places to stop along the way. If you're going inland, then the one place that is a must [if you like ecclesiastical architecture] is Anagni: the 13th c. frescos in the crypt under the Cathedral are simply some of the most astonishing things I've ever seen. Also, just after you leave Rome (and it doesn't really matter if you're going coast or in-land here), Lake Albano and Lake Nemi are both worth a quick visit. The former has Castelgandolfo, the site of the Pope's summer residence, and the latter is beautiful for a cycle round.
