If you have no inclination on how large Canada is, this epic motorcycle ride will enlighten you, your senses and your gas tank on how big Canada and more specifically Ontario actually is.
Located in what is known as northern Ontario, this route of almost 1200km’s will take through the Canadian shield where your throttle hand may just get a little tired as you roll through one long sweeping corner after another. If riding roads that wind, twist and turn through rock cuts, follow along majestic shorelines and run parallel through towering canopies of forest are your thing…Then this ride was made for you...Known as one of the most scenic rides in Canada, the stretch along the massive Lake Superior from Wawa to Sault St. Marie will leave you breathless..
