You must ride Cankamaugus (sp) highway when in N. Hampshire!
Time of year is a coin toss but I would imagine end of Sept. into beginning of Oct. would be most likely the best for fall colors.

Here's a nice foliage map, shows when & where the peak foliage in New England is. The "Kanc" is a nice ride but it's short. As previous poster said check out Mt. Washington. It's beautiful but VERY windy some days and lots of fun on the bike. Also Hurricane Mountain Road if you like the twisties and a trip to Acadia National Park in Maine would be well worth the time. Haven't been there yet but everyone we've talked to about it say it's spectacular especially the view from Cadillac.
