James Bay - or bust!

Just got in from my ride, 3,388km overall. Strated light at 4pm on Friday, and rode out past North Bay, to the small town of New Liskeard. The second day was rough going: crappy weather and winds, but we got all the way into Chisasibi (pronounced "she-SAH-see-bee) at 2:30am and slept in their multi purpose convention centre / post office / school gymnasium / hotel / internet cafe at $120 per night. Note that there are no places that serve breakfast, and only 1 gas station in town. The road from there to the bay is 15km of gravel, and the end sight isn't all that spectacular, so I'd suggest staying in Radisson instead and doing the Dam Tour. All in all, the weather should have been better and this trip definitely needs more than 3 days! Lots of missed photo opportunities, especially at Rupert's Falls and the 52nd Parallel road sing... WATCH OUT FOR THE BLACK BEARS ON THE HIGHWAY!!
