No, not yet Mike. Still working on a few subtle changes but nothing major for Ontario at this point.
I posted some pictures in this thread of the struggles on the 2019 proof run of the Island routes: https://advrider.com/f/threads/vancouver-island-grand-loop-little-help-please.1375945/
Work is still being done looking for a route across Nova Scotia, it’s being a challenge
Another awesome TCAT province in the bag! Alberta did not disappoint.
Is this bridge in the Ontario portion of the TCAT? I thought I saw somewhere it was...but not sure.
I think I have the location now thanks to a guy that posted a YouTube video of it. NE of Sudbury. 46°36'56.0"N 80°39'24.8"W
Sudbury, Unorganized, North Part, ON, Canada
Reminds me of Siberia
Thanks for posting that, that just became a waypoint I want to get to!
Same here! Though the guy that gave me the location mentioned it's not in very good condition, and suggested I bypass it. I'll be there in a couple of weeks, and will decide then if I want to ride across or not. My wife said she will be happy to walk across and take pictures should I go for it.
You’ll beat me to it, so let me know how it goes!
Any ride reports of anyone going through the Ontario section this year?
Heading from Minden to Sudbury in two weeks, couple of new riders with me, hoping to get an understanding of the condition and any photos taken.
I'll be really close to Minden in two weeks. Sadly, no bike this trip.
I will be getting on the trail on 8/4 or 8/5, starting at Parent Quebec, and riding to Wawa. I'll be two up on a 990, taking it slow and easy ( we have two weeks). I'll try to post anything noteworthy if I can. Similarly, I'd appreciate any updates on conditions. Has it been a wet mucky muddy summer?
If anyone sees a 990 two up on the Ontario TCAT in that time frame, safe bet it's us. Feel free to stop and chat if opportunity presents!
We’re riding up from Minden to Sudbury August 3rd and riding back August 4th. Odds are we will miss you.
But I’ll post some pictures for people
If you don't mind taking requests ... I heard that the ferry on the Bazin (N47° 47.410' W74° 43.034') has been replaced with a permanent bridge. I am really interested in seeing what they built.
I will see what I can do! Is that the hand drawn ferry just south of Parent you are referring to?
I've been across that bridge on a sled. It's worse than it looks in the pic but it's still passable. Part of the old railway north of Sudbury..
Yes that's the one.
Update on the bridge, we walked our bikes across. It was somewhat nerve wracking but okay. No way I was driving it. I tried to take updated photos.
There’s 1-3 spots that are pretty dodgy, with momentum and a 21” wheel they weren’t too much of a hurdle. But I’d say around 6-10” gap between logs. Other than that, it’s pretty feasible.
Kudos to anyone who rides it!

Yesterday tried to ride from 118 to Baysville, ON. on Black river road. Few kilometers after 118 there is the sign with "no enter" and flashing lights. I turned around and ride to Baysville thryHwy11.
After Huntsville, where track crossed Hwy 11 and goes on it's west side, there is right turn from North Waseosa Lake road to Jessup Lane. After few kilometers there is some commercial yard and then road become very narrow and it looks like it used by ATV only. Local guy told me it will become even worce after few kilometers. I was along with a loaded bike. Decided not to go, and went around thry Hwy 11.
Continue north-west. After Walls starts Seguin Trail toward Sprucedale. Some sandy and some very stony parts. Had full pants of adrenaline.
May be I am not very experienced rider, but I wouldn't recommend goes two up there.
