If you found it not tolerable at the Gap in August, you might have issues anywhere that isn't in the mountains in summer.
Deal's Gap is going to be at least 10 to 20 degreees Farenheit COOLER than in the flat lands.
I ride all year around in central North Carolina... but sporadically the last five or six weeks of summer. One of the reasons is I ride an air cooled Buell and hot air in will not cool that bike down... plus the fan exhaust under the seat will fry you. I tend to turn the bike off at stoplights. LOL!
I can probably dig around on NOAA for you if you want specific average and high temperatures for any region. It is all public information form the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
They have been tracking temperature, humidity, rainfall etc for several decades and it is all available on line. If you know what YOU can tolerate compared to that, you may have an objective answer to your question.
