This will be my 12th straight year attending Laconia. Went prior to that on occasion. Have been staying walking distance for a number of years now, with a large group. Also, have a family lake home about 15 minutes from Wolfboro on the Maine boarder.
As OP, I will jump in a bit and comment, as well as update.
Comment - Rain
As you look at reviews of various Rally's around the country, weather is always brought up.
But, if you Tour on a regular basis, you are aware you will get wet once in a while. IF you only tour occasionally, rain will seem a much bigger deal to you.
In this case, some nick name it Rainconia. But, the reality is out of the past 10 years, rain has been a big factor once. For the most part, it will rain at least once per week May thru July in the Lakes Region. So, using a good service, such as Weatherunderground on your phone, you can plan/ride around it.
Roads in the area:
There are quite a few awesome rides to, from, and in NH. There is a site called New England Riders. (NERDS) Best road advice site I have found. New England, NY, PA, Maritimes. I use it planning all of our group rides.
MT Washington is usually Bike Only on two days. It's not an easy ride. Beats your bike up going down. Best mountain ride, that is easy, is Whiteface near Lake Placid NY. Smooth easy gentle turns and nice pavement. Bar at top too !
