The JBR, is reputed to be a boring ride however the uniqueness of the adventure intrigues me. One of my kids got transferred to Timmins, I'll be heading there soon to help him get setup -- I think I'll use that as mile zero for a JBR run. I have heard you need moose bars on your bike in June... not for the mooses, for the flies.It's not Shane ...it's about acheivable trips this summer and so good Canadian adventures should be covered. I'm more likely to do The James Bay Road in mid June ...already have a motel scoped out.
Iceland popped up as one of the few over seas trips that could occur in the next 3 months that I WOULD consider ....not going to the US, not going to Europe....could do New Zealand but getting to Australia first is #1 ....even have a ticket.
If you are going up the St Lawrence Parc Mauricie is a must do. La Mauricie National Park fantastic riding on a quiet day....
