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!!

If we end up doing insane distances in inclement weather, there's NO camping involved. Otherwise, I'm all pro-outdoors and got the gear to boot!

Talking Ontario Riders

Howdy!
I'm new to this site and I would like to know if there are any Ontario riders.If so would you know any good weekend rides. Also my friend and I are planning to go to Cape Breton for the TT in Sept. Is there anyone planning on going? Do you know any good roads to take? Maybe we can even meet up along the way. I will be coming from Toronto.

Thanks...

Hey Ridemuch

There are plenty of great rides north of the city. Just depends how much time you're interested in committing for the ride. A couple of hours or a day or two. As for the TT... I hadn't heard it was comming. Now I'm thinking that I have to find some way to be there for it.

Cheers

Fin

Well, I'm in Ontario...but it's about a 23 hour ride from Toronto to here.
Too bad, there's lots of good logging roads around here!

Hey Ridemuch

I want to go to that race, hopefully cut through Maine. If I have time I should go over that bridge to PEI while I am in the area. If you have a snowmobile you better get it out from the look of things around Ottawa.

There is a dealership (Yamaha I think) just out of Port Hawksbury (C.B.) If you contact the staff a few days prior to your visit some of them may be able to show you a few trails.

The bridge is just a bridge. Don't put yourself out to see it.

Hey Ridemuch, if you want some great riding in Ontario you should check out RALLY CONNEX, they put on some great weekend rides for the adventure type rider and have just released their 2006 ride schedule. Rumour has it that Scot Harden will be returning to Ontario to put on another school at the Rally Connex Sudbury ride. Do a search on ADVrider for some stories on their rides or visit their website. http://www.rallyconnex.com
