    Gaspe Run

    I just got back from 9 days in the great Gaspe !! Had excellent weather 90 % of the time and excellent trails 95%.. Rodney
  5. i was planning to go to the north shore in February but with all the ferry problems i may change plans, Will wait to see if the F.A Gauthier gets back in service before making reservations!
  6. Did my first NB ride in feb this past winter, trails were all great except for one section due to broke down groomers, 750 km in 3 days. i did find that all the trails lacked signage, maybe because i have always ridden in Qc.. but the only signs i saw were at major trail intersections... still with the trail maps and cell phones we did good!!
  7. go to this link, NB interactive map https://www.nbfsc.com/index.php/maps Island lake lodge would be due west of Bathurst at a major intersection of the trail system, a few different loops can be done from there.. I planned my 3 day trip with their map and it worked out 95%, I do think they need more signs telling you where you are , I had to frequently go to the trail app on my phone. But trails were great!!!
  8. Not sure how far you would want to do in a day , but I was in NB last week for 3 days.. We had coffee at a place called Island Lake, they rent cottages and I think from there you could easily do a few different day trips..
  9. What do you take as far as tools and or spare parts when travelling? I think I go overkill , a booster pack, with complete set of sockets and wrenches 8mm-24mm , spare wheel of each size on the sled and spare bearings with the tools to change them, as well as some oil, chain case oil, antifreeze , tie wraps, hose clamps, hay wire, ductape , rubber mallet , headlamp. with an assortment of spare nuts and bolts flagging tape , survival blanket ,flares , bungie cords , and a couple of ratchet straps. oh and an axe and a saw.. Good thing she is long and has a lot of carrying space... But I would like to cut back. Thanks, Rodney
  10. I did that last season, loved it.. will surely go again!!
  11. domaine Valga is nowhere near Chandler, unless I am mistaken...Check it out www.domainevalga.com/
  12. keep checking the ferry, it is broke down... not sure for how long , but it will probably be weeks... just a heads up before getting there and it is not crossing!!!
  13. that bridge is 1 km upriver from my dads cottage, river is very high!!!
  14. I wrote Timbrell .. but should have wrote Parent.
  15. Thanks for the input, I am still ironing out details using the interactive map. I am leaning towards the first of march for this trip. does this look realistic, no real big mile days but very doable I think depending on weather and trails. Day 1 Four Pt. Qc city to 3#-369-23-83-Roberval approx. 320 km Day 2 Roberval-373-93- Chibougamau approx. 315 km Day 3 Chib-93-Sennetere approx. 350 Day 4 sennetere-83- Timbrell approx 380 km Day 5 Timbrell 83-73- La Tuque approx. 360 km Day 6 La Tuque 73-3- Qc city. approx 225 km any info on places to stay and where to fuel up etc..will be appreciated!! Thanks, Rodney.
