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.

Here is one link you can try...

http://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/most-popular-data



For instance... if you want to look up last August min, max and average temperatures... you can follow this link... from the first link to "Edited monthly data, parameters Alabama, then Birmingham..." but it looks like you have to convert from F deg to C deg.

��I know really well the dangers of heatstroke and its symptoms
and how to avoid it. In my work I have experienced occasions of
extreme heat , for instance how about sitting inside
a steel dragline bucket in the sun on a 30C day and doing
welding repairs for an afternoon , or shoveling grain in the bottom of a
silo on the hottest day of summer

My remarks were made on the
premise of a healthy individual going into a hot
climate to do non exerting
movement as on riding a streetbike and that
person being informed and reasonable.As I explained
people in Ontario like elsewhere are too quick to
start complaint about the heat and have no perspective
A day after bitching about the heat the same folks
may be bitching about the cold.
Those are what I call Whiners�� not the
person who gives a simple opinion ��
Key West or Louisiana or Death Valley in
July or August can be very enjoyable. If you are prepared

In TN it's not terrible in June, but July and August can be tough. Some of it will depend on your ability to tolerate the heat. I had a friend in high school that moved from Koos Bay, OR to Louisiana in the summer. He couldn't wash his car without having to go back into the house to cool off while we were practicing football in the same heat.
