Northrider, one of the nice things about the Icebreaker, is that there's always more than one route. Last year Greg was having trouble with a sciatic nerve, so i rode the "easy" route with him, while the rest of the guys went with Kari, and took the long way round.

I had a bike a while back that was hard to get parts for, and know how you feel about that!

My only plan for the "Lap of the Lake" so far is to go around clockwise so I'm riding on the lake side and work it into an extended weekend (3 or 4 days maybe), Maybe leaving friday after work and riding to the soo or soo michigan. I'll also be tenting the majority of nights.

Sounds good Gord, we'll have to make sure we hit all the important stuff. I've never seen the pictographs that Hecktoglider posted at one point, would like to go there.

circle tour

I am in for a circle tour. I hope to do it maybe in July or August....I cannot plan too far ahead actually and find spur of the moment rides work out to be the best.But if you jokers are going on a certain date, I will definetely try to be there.

The Agawa pictograph site..

Old Woman bay

Jackfish Ghost Town
