Talking SMIB Trans Lab 2011 (Execution phase)

Well the planning phase is over and the time for execution is near, so this is the beginning of the SMIB's do the TLH 2011 ride report. For those of you who don't know what SMIB stands for it's Southern Maryland In Breed. More to follow this evening...

I am stealing the first couple posts for the important stuff like maps and stuff which I will add later or after I return.

Side Journeys Which need More Detail

This post will be used to post our trip blunders, mostly a few side excursions that might be a great adventure to the some of the locals. These were not finished (aborted) by us, and so not recommended for the masses. Don't blame us when your bike gets marooned!

See post 207 of this RR to see the 3 aborted routes. The first two routes were north entrance to a sink hole. The third aborted route was in Gros Morne Back country.

Trip Highlights

The following are my thoughts/highlights:

1) What: Day Trip to Esker
Where: Stage from Churchill Fall, Labrador
Why: The trail is very fast hard pack with fantastic scenery, turns, two water hazards, one ravine/gulley wash.
Here's the quick link for more info and photos in this RR (Day 4, post 54)

2) What: Back roads through Gros Morne
Where: Gros Morne to Marble Mountain/Deer Lake, Newfoundland
Why: Although these are fire roads, the area probably also contains trails. The scenery is very idelylic, turns and hills, and the fire roads more exciting than the alternative tarmac route.
Here's the quick link for more info and photos in this RR Day 12, post 122

3) What: Zipline Tour at Marble Mountain
Where: Marble Mountain, Newfoundland
Why: This is the largest (second largest?) zipline in Canada. It contains 9 zips, and you can reach 80KPH on the last zip.
Here's the quick link for more info and photos in this RR Day 12, post 122

4) What: East-side of Red Indian Lake
Where: Near Buchans, Newfoundland
Why: Fast dirt hardpack, some turns
Here's the quick link for more info and photos in this RR Day 14, post 145
