    June 25th, I am on my way up to James Bay via Toronto and North Bay. Bringing a tent and will take full advantage of the northern extended daylight. Long riding days.
    From James Bay taking the North Road towards Chicoutimi and then down to Quebec City.

    Anyone else up there during that period of time? :freaky

    I hope to get there later this year myself. While you are in the Lac St Jean/Chicoutimi area, you must try hit these roads!!! Coming from Chicoutimi, I would go down 172 to Les Escoumin, jog west on the free ferry at Tadoussac and then north via 170 to Chicoutimi/La Baie, and then zip down 381 again to the St Lawrence River at Baie St Paul. Or you could take the 176 through Laurentian Park; it's much busier with truck traffic and more desolate than 381 but more direct to Quebec City. I think down/up/down is a good days ride.
