Day -1 Preps
This ride report is intended to capture a ride through Ontario and Quebec that will go up the James Bay Road to Raddison, QC (E below); the Trans-Taiga Highway to where the sidewalk ends (F); a short run out to Chisisibi (G) to actually see James Bay; take the North Road across the middle of Quebec to Chibougamau (H); and a piece of the Trans-Canada Route (I, J, K, L) to Forrestville (M). Then back south to home.
the heart of the ride
The Trans-Taiga’s northeastern terminus is almost at the 55th parallel north, making it the northernmost continuous road in Eastern North America. The terminus is also the farthest point from any town (745 kilometres (463 mi) from Radisson) via road in North America.
My riding partners will be Blaster11 (Bruce) on an HP2, Dorito (Dana, aka Bruce’s better half) on an F650GS, Keithmckenny (Keith) on an R1200GS. I will be on an F700GS
