Planning has begun

Looks like I will be going over this during the winter so I can start planning for next summer. Thanks for the great info.

Wow... thanks Cannonshot

Great pics, great info, and some really neat extras that I was looking for in planning my circle tour next summer. Got my map in the mail today (I love maps) and settled in for an awesome read.

Hi Shane! Hope all is well down under. Winter here.

Thanks for the kind words and I'm glad you enjoyed the report.

Maybe I'll drop in down there someday.

Great ride report

This is an awesome RR for sure! Much better done then when I went around in 2011. Thanks for lots of good entertainment.

Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed it hopefully it brought back pleasant memories of your own ride.

Part of the idea was to catalog things that others might want to include in their own ride. Such a beautiful area!

What do you guys think of doing this run the first week or two of October? I would expect cold and rain but what about snow? Yeah I know varies from year to year but what about "average" years?

I would give you 50/50 odds. Weather then can be absolutely beautiful, or snowy and cold....often on the same day.

July 5 & 6, between TO and Wawa, the temp was in the 30's C. July 7 from Wawa to Thunder Bay it was 11C all day and wet, not something we expected so we were somewhat cold, but frequent stops for hot drinks helped greatly. July 8 from TB to just past Duluth it was the same thing. As soon as we rounded Duluth it came back up into the high 20's.

The forecast made no mention of this. Whenever you head out for this trip, be prepared for any weather.

Thanks CS.

I'll be using this report & tracks to help plan a similar ride this summer. Any suggested best time to go? We're thinking early August.

We met once briefly at the second CADV rally.

Thanks again.

August sounds great. It can get really cool anytime though. My guess would be that there would be a lot tourists around during that time which could constrain some lodging or camping availability later in the day. I'm glad this thread and the tracks are helping you with your own trip.
