The best time for you to go bikepacking depends entirely on your own priorities. If you go during warmer periods, your days will be a little more pleasant—something you’ll be especially thankful for in the mornings and evenings. If you go during colder periods, you’ll have to take more equipment with you stay warm around the clock. Unfortunately, however, it tends to get busier the warmer it gets and you’ll always find more people in summer than in spring or autumn, whereas it’s often not advisable to head out on long bikepacking tours in the winter at all—unless you’re into the extreme. 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.
