    Nicely done, Spruce, from another Canadian fatbiker. Envious. I couldn't put a tour like that together in Southern Ontario.

    I don't know, I rode from Thunder Bay to Toronto last year, doing Ottawa to TO next month.
    My stuff's all roadwork, but trust me- there's topography and trails out there that you'd never think of!

    NLSPruce: that's a beautiful trip!! kudos!

    Awesome!

    We went to Newfoundland for our honeymoon, many years ago. Cruised a bunch of "ponds" hiked Gros Morne, etc.

    One of the highlights was running across a CBC crew that was filming a story about riding MTB's across the island using the logging roads.

    We were told they were plentiful, generally in solid shape, and all mapped by the govt.

    Been meaning to get back up and explore that, ever since.

    Thanks for the awesome stoke, you live in a really starkly beautiful land.....
