    I figure that we will probably split into 2 groups as I totally agree with you on trying to ride with large groups.We have a well mapped itinerary so everybody knows where there going.The main thing for us is being a group for dinner and bar time.We used to do this on our big sled trips and it...

    We are doing both the North road and the Trans Tiaga.We have never done that before so it will be new to us.The logistics are a bit different as we will have to carry 20litres of fuel for the TT as after the Mirage the fuel supply is unknown since Air Sagenay closed.

    We will be very lucky to get our ride in late June at this rate.We all have time cleared off so we will probably do a Northern Ontario ride if we cannot do our planned Northern Quebec ride.

    According to Luc at the Mirage getting fuel there is quite sporatic and says it is better to carry our own fuel.
