Met up with Juames and Dan mid June to push the route further west then north up to a small city called North Bay. This section of the route had been examined in detail, many many times. Originally we were to route through a town called Huntsville. That portion of the route had to be re routed due to the G8 Summit taking place in that town
We all knew about the G8 but somehow never put two and two together until 2 days before departure. I was a bit dissapointed as I was lookintg forward to some of the trails north of Huntsville that run along the edge of Algonquin Nation Park.
As usual we met up at a Tim's for coffee and to look over the maps again.
Bike loaded up for a few days
This will become a reoccuring theme, blasting some slab to catch up to the route.
A bit of gravel thrown in for fun on the way west
Look out for these guys.
Some fun twisties
We last left the route ending in the town of Ompah, Ontario. Ompah has a couple of nice campgrounds, a gas station/general store and a few other small businesses. This is a recommended gas stop on the route and would make a likely place to spend a night.
Happy to be back on the route and making progress again
The route takes some slab for about 20 minutes before getting back into some back roads.
