Fantastic Job you guys are doing!
Seems as if I have a new "dream ride". One more reason to visit Canada.
Looking forward to new reports from the TCAT!

Greetings from Germany

On one of our East Coast tours we found this gem in central New Brunswick. It turned out to be absolutely spectacular. I'd recommend it for your cross country route.

You must have hit a long stretch of construction because the 385 is paved. When I went to Mount Carleton last fall (october) it had many new sections.

This thread is to quiet...

Back at it...

Well it's been three warmer weeks since I last was blocked by snow through the passes so I figured I give her another go...I took the east side alternate route in with plans of coming back through the main route where the snow stopped me last time...


Things looked good on the first higher route as it seemed to be snow free and I was going to make it through... Not! Too big to bounce over,
backtrack again...

The east route has some very nice falls along it..

Some nice views along the east route...

Back on the main route I saw some brown critters skip the road so I grabbed the camera to get some footage... This herd of elk had over 30 animals in it, they were all over the place..

Yippee! made it to the top of the pass and the snow is gone... This is on top looking back from where I come...

Did I mention , I love the mountains...

And smooth sailing down the other side...

This little critter wasn't camera shy... Certainly was a wildlife day, my count was over 40 Elk, 8 bears and 7 deer. Little spooky riding homeward as several bands of elk popped out on the road keeping me on my toes...

I'll be out next weekend riding a chunk of Juames section of the route in western Quebec and then a few days later leaving with some landrovers to pre drive from where Juames section leaves off to about the mid way point in Quebec. Both trips look promising. Ross informs me that he has three speparate weeks planned to test ride his section of the route this summer. I'm meeting Fab in early Auguest to spend a week riding the eastern Quebec section of the route. A few folks are helping out test riding different sections of western Ontario this season.

All in all it would appear as if this will be a big season for the TCAT

Hope you recognize the pic, I crossed the line Friday. We took a down day today and I thought to post.



Two sets of tracks,





It will likely be on up into August before we publish on this end, I have to clean up the track logs and edit the documents. The tracks are laid.

Kinda looks like the McAdam, NB train station? I've ridden by a few times but never stopped in.
