    Across Newfoundland by fatbike

    The Newfoundland T'Railway is a 900 km long linear provincial park created from the former railway line that ran from end-to-end of the province. I recently rode the entire length on a fatbike in ten days. The T'Railway is the playground of ATV's and snowmobiles - I hope to inspire more people to ride it.

    Nicely done.

    Thanks for the report! I live a very west-coast-centric life so it's great to see what's going down on Canada's other coast.
    Safe riding,

    Thanks Vik. Each of us on islands, just on opposite ends of the same country. Maybe someday we'll meet in the middle for a trip.

    Eastman, that was an awesome solo trip. I've encountered many bears(and beers) in NFLD, very surprised you didn't see any. I wonder is that an ATV benefit or is the bear population low?

    Biggie - I saw bear scat in a few places between Deer Lake and Badger but that was it. Don't know how the bear population is doing but the moose population is thriving and I didn't see any of them, either.
