i've been looking at a lot of pics on this site so here's some payback

less than an hour north of my house it's just lakes, rocks & trees ('till trees wont grow anymore) so the roads have to go up, down & around a lot of stuff

put this together for maximumbikes




me & Tony went for a fun ride Wednesday
just under 600k

here's a map

Hi mate

looks and sounds like you've got quite a way to go, before you hit some twisties/ hills/ etc. I always thought, Canada was more hilly/ mountaineous.
Thatks for the post....and keep 'em coming, it's ALWAYS great to see some pics and read some yarns from far-away places.

Thanks for sharing :so:so:so
