Labor Day will likely restrict available rooms. Hunting seasons are another consideration, some areas in Colo. & Wyoming turn into a circus over it, generally that’s the last half of Sept. and coincides with the rut and cooler weather.
Sept. 12-19 might be be a good choice based on those factors as long as we don’t schedule ourselves into a hunting area on opening week...or maybe that would be a good thing, can I carry a rifle on a bike?:D

I really don't have a preference, other than for optimal weather, I'm going to research the historical record before I vote

I have ridden them all in September, many times.
We'll have a very good likelyhood of excellent weather.
The 10K foot passes of CO can be cool (45 - 55 ish) but dry and very tolerable.

I know, I've ridden them mid July and seen snow.
I just meant how much the average weather cools during the course of September.

I like your idea to research the September weather.
I know for the UT ride the high part is on 12 between Boulder and Grover.

Would folks like rough draft routes of the 3 ride proposals?
