the Rout du Nord intersects the Baie-James about 175 miles above Matagami and from that point runs generally southeast to the intersection with pavement above Chibougamau, about 250 miles.
it doesn't look like all that much on an overview map, but there's some miles there, and some of those riding days are all gravel, or mostly gravel.
There's lots of miles on that map. Its just not an accurate map. It was a quick search of the towns in google to give an overview of the area you were talking about.
