GDMBR time of year- how late can you go?
« on: September 10, 2018, 06:08:35 pm »
I am from the UK and am hoping to do the GD route north to south September/ October 2019. (It is hard to get off work earlier). Is this feasible weather wise? Thanks for your comments.

In some years you might get lucky and make it through before the snow flies, but it is touch and go from mid-September onwards just to get through the Canadian portion. In fact, here in Calgary, they are calling for a chance of snow this week and there is a significant amount forecasted for Banff. But in some years, it is still in the high 20s (Celsius) this time of year). Pretty risky leaving that late.

Here is a good article by a person who has ridden both ways.  His journals are pretty nice also.
