Considering weather and traffic, what is the best time of year to do this ride? The changing leaves in the fall sound great but I imagine the traffic is pretty heavy then, so I am thinking that May or June might be nice.
Since my leave is limited this year it might be a good year for a shortish 7-9 day ride like this. It has the added benefit of not being too far from home. We rode a short bit of the BRP while doing the TransAmerica last summer and thought it looked like great riding.
