The timing of this ride is a balance between not quite peak color and avoiding heavy peak color traffic.
In the picture below, behind the church you can see the stalls for horses and wagons where the church goers could 'park'. The stalls extend all the way along the back of the church. Often the stalls are arranged in a semicircle around the church to shorten the walk.
In the picture below you can see the large central chimney and the front door centered in the house, these are both indicators of very old houses. The chimney will have openings in every room in the house for heating and a large opening to the kitchen for cooking.

The picture below is the NERDS infamous Burdick's restaurant. A few years ago a large group of NERDS left early morning with the temperature in the mid 20s and ice in many places on the roads then rode ~90 miles to Burdick's for breakfast. We arrived and told the hostess we had reservations. She looked at us in our gear and told us they have no tables open. We could see 50% or more of the tables in back were open. The hostess told us they were all reserved and there was no room for us. Eventually we gave up and left without getting seated.
