Hi, thinking of heading over to ride sections 5 and 6 of Sierra Cascades route.

I am interested if anyone has ridden through the national parks areas (Sequoia, Kings Canyon, Yosemite) in June?
What was the traffic like?

Judging by the pictures of traffic jams etc... it could be quite unpleasant to cycle tour at that time?

Yes there was traffic, but the beauty of the trip was worth it.  The worst of the road/traffic issues were because there was major road work the year we were there.  I tend to be pretty traffic tolerant though so YMMV.

The trip had an insane amount of steep climbing, that I thought was far more challenging than the traffic, but again the rewards were amazing.
