I just went thru RR again! Good memories and I cant wait to go again! I still have a bunch of videos from the trip to put together. Last 2 month I was busy with my daughter and reading this report gives some adrenaline again! Thanks Tim for putting tracks together and making it all happen!!!!!

Thumb Nice Thank you!

Just discovered this RR today! Great job
I'm just finishing up my own RR from 2012 (yes I know "slacker" but alot has changed in a year ) and after blowing an engine, then being taken in by locals, I found the Rock to be the friendliest place I've ever been... Truly a life changing experience!!!

I plan a return ride in the next couple months.
Again great write up.

A great RR! A good read -- especially enjoyed the local scene and history sketches - and a fount of terrific tech and ridecraft. Thank you!

THUNK!
Hey! I know that guy!


Thanks for posting this ride report. 8GV told me about this ride and the relocated town. Great to see some pictures of the ride.

8GV, had some good riders so far this year, looking forward to some more. Hope you are doing good.

This was a great thread and coincidentally my buddy and I were on the rock 2 weeks before you guys.

We had the same weather: cold and many rainy days. We did a loop from Port aux Basques to L'ainse aux Meadows, through the centre up to Twilling Gate. Over to the the Bonaventure to visit my ancestral home in Princeton and Tickle Cove. Then down to St.Johns and back on the ferry.
