The best time for your trip depends on your priorities. The warmer it is, the more pleasant it is during the day—especially in the mornings and evenings. Unfortunately, though, the roads tend to get busier the warmer it gets and you’ll always find more action on the road in summer than in spring or autumn. One thing is also clear: in winter, it is not always advisable to embark on a long cycling tour—something your feet and fingers are thankful for. No matter when you go, just make sure you take more water with you when it's warm and more food when it's cool as the cold weather also consumes more calories.
How you choose to spend your nights will define the nature of your trip. If you are choose comfort and rent a bed every night, you will have to plan your stages ahead of time. Camping, especially in the wild, will make you more independent, but you’ll have to bring more stuff. If you’re unsure, just try it out and see what your body and mind are longing for after a day in the saddle.
