I'm considering touring the Icefields Parkway from Banff to Jasper by bicycle. Can anyone give me a good target month with a balance of low crowds and decent weather?
I understand the August is the warmest but pretty crowded so I am guessing that is out. As far as weather, a couple of wet days are OK. A few cold days are OK but even one wet cold day would be no fun at all.
If is i dry, I find riding in 4-7C somewhat tolerable, with above 10C far more pleasant. If it is going to be wet then above 10C is the comfort zone for me.
We do plan to take rooms so we will be in a nice warm place at night so cold evenings won't be an issue.Edited: 5:37 pm, December 22, 2012
