I work on a rotation so I have to plan my time off on the Even weeks of the year. Would be great to go earlier but I know that this route will only have 6 to 8 weeks of prime riding each year.
That's the timeframe when I was planning as well. I'm pretty easy. I'm pretty sure that Magruder is part of the IDBDR and it's often not open till late July. The Lolo Motorway might not be snow free much earlier either. I don't know much of the southern part of the state, it will be a learning experience.
