You won't have any issues in mid summer up there, regards to being really cold, might actually be kind of hot during the day. There are a few areas, close to the coast, that are really windy and would be a little colder. There are basically no trees for miles and the wind wips through there pretty good. Now there is still lots of snow up there, on the ground, in May and likely mid to end of Sept it is getting cold.

Around this area September has some of the nicest weather and than there is the leaves changing colors as well. If you could time it so there was a couple of frosts just before you went up there than you would not have the bug problem to deal with. This can be tricky to plan though.

The weather in Labrador is more or less Artic weather. Much colder than all of eastern Canada, and lots more snow. I'm talking 10 feet of snow kind of thing in the winter.

Rode it a couple of years ago at the end of July or early August (cannot remember).

Rained and you could see your breath. I was pretty much hypothermic, lips were blue and couldnt get my fingers to move. It was brutally cold...I was big time wishing I had of packed some warmer/drier gear.

Rode it late June this year. Temps varied from hot to cold. Be prepared and make sure that you have good rain gear. An electric vest would be nice. Be careful of following & passing trucks.....lack of visibility can get you in trouble...and prepare for black flies. You're going to get dirty :-)

...and have fun.
