Travelling East to West - March to May , 3 months time allowed...For a novice cyclist.

Alternatively in the Fall ? when is the latest to cycle before the Snow in the Rockies ? Are the winds or weather bad in the Fall ?

From our FAQs:

When is the best time to ride a specific route?
Southern Tier:Early fall to late spring, and into summer in the east. Caution: Snow can occur at any time in the higher elevations in the Southwest, with the highest pass in New Mexico being over 8,000 feet. In the southeast, hurricane season is from June 1 to November 1. See also: When to Ride: Southern Tier blog post.
