    I've been up that way the past couple of summers. KLR one year...GSA the next. Don't just blow through. Take the few sideroads and explore the communities they serve.
    I left Port Hope Simpson in the morning and camped in Churchill Falls that afternoon with a bicyclist who had the misfortune of colliding with a motorcyclist from Montreal. Sorry to say the GSA rider passed away at the scene.
    Best advice i can give to anyone is don't set a timetable as weather affects road conditions and hurrying hurts. The graders work all summer and the berms usually send a few riders home early each season.
    Pavement is being laid from Goose bay to Lab City from each end and will meet in the middle next year probably.
    Any thing else you need to know just ask on Ridetherock.com. We aim to please.

    Thank you to everyone for the insight and support. Once the trip is done I will post the ride report. I am just taking things as they come, once home I will reflect back on the trip and write up a report.

    Oh, Christ. So sorry to read this. My condolences to those of you who knew him.

    Anyone have any further info on how the accident happened? Not out of any sense of morbid curiosity, but so we can make future Trans-Lab riders aware of yet another of the many things to look out for.

    put something on and stay in that position.
    Someone posted that it appears he was passed on the Trans-Lab by a truck, which then stopped suddenly after pulling back in front of Eddie.

    Probably lost in a cloud of dust, he rear-ended the truck.

    There aren't any solid sources for this information, I'm afraid.

    Really, really sad. I was trying to get to the Trans-Lab before Sept. this year, taking about 2 weeks. I don't know what I'll do now. I read this thread because it had such fantastic information.

    You lot are tops.

    I'm terribly saddened.

    If that's true, I hope the driver's facing charges.

    Make the trip anyway. Accidents happen no matter where you go.

    Looks like I'll be back up there at the end of August too on my way to Newfoundland.
