    Tried looking on the web for info, but wasn't too successful.

    Planning a run up the Trans-Lab in early June, and was wondering what the weather would be like in relation to camping/riding.

    Stuff like average temp is easy to get, but I was wondering about issues such as the spring thaw, road conditions, rain...things like that.

    Any info, as well as reccomended stops, would be greatly appreciated.....

    Thanks,
    Malcolm

    The one thing I'll mention is Blackflys. The area will be overun with them. Make sure the bike is in good repair as you don't want to have to stop and fix something. :deal I imagine it will be cooler in Labrador than areas at lower latitudes. :huh Others should be along with the other info you want.

    June is a great time to go; the earlier, the better. The daytime temps are around 60 and ~30 at night. August is drier, but June has NO BUGS. June also has real long daylight hours. I'm considering going back up this year with my open trip dates being June 6-30.
    Watch out for the stray snow storm. The ground is also soggy off the beaten path and there is still some snow on the ground. PM me if you need any more info.
