Over the May 24th long weekend I tackled the route I’ve been calling “Irish Loop Off Road” or ILOR. If anybody has a better name let me know (Paul C?). Amy, Paul and I first tackled this route two years ago, that time riding it in a counter-clockwise direction and learning what worked and what didn’t. This iteration of the route is much better.
This ride has it all: 80% of it is on dirt, the majority of the paved sections are on quiet roads; single track, dirt roads, ATV tracks, 2 hike-a-bike sections; great vistas; wildlife (I saw caribou, moose and a snowy owl on this trip); resupply is easy; free camping; water is easily available.
I now have GPX files for this route – if you would like them just drop me an email: theslowbiker at gmail.com.
