    I'll be heading up the James bay ice road next month and need a place to swap tires in Cochrane. Any ideas?

    I work with a guy from Iroquois falls. Will ask today if he knows anywhere. Do you need them taken off and on rims?

    Thanks,

    I'll bring tires, tubes, tools and everything else I need to change them over myself from road to ice setup. All I need is a warm space to do it before I load the bike on the Moosenee train for the trip up the bay sea ice. I will be camping pretty much the whole way so accommodations are not required.

    Cheers

    Paps power shop on main drag in Cochrane. Is what he said and will try and think of any others. I know on some of my adventures a fire hall was a a place that was usually more than willing to help out. You could just knock on the door and ask. You may even get a hand and a cup of coffee to boot. My last thought is the airport. Tons of spare space in a hanger even when it is full of planes. Are you going to post a report i have a feeling it will be a good one? Spot tacker? Take bear spray, male polar bears don't hibernate.
