    El mejor video que he visto.

    Hi all: I'm crossing canada with a loaded touring bike this summer. Unlike most, I plan to come off in Port Au Basque (instead of Argentia) to get the full flavor of 'The Rock' before hitting St John's.

    Google Maps cycling map is recommending what seems an odd route, as it includes a dirt road that runs behind Red Indian Lake (48°44'54.6"N 56°45'00.7"W). This will shave off 100 km (and a day's saddle time) from taking the trans-canada around Cornerbook/Deer lake... but it seems pretty remote, and it's unclear the condition of this road (other than being unpaved).

    Has anyone been on this road? Is it decent shape for cycling with a proper tour bike (ie. not road tires, but 38 mm touring tires).

    I am assuming there will be zero food or facilities on this route (given that it's a dirt road), but I'm carrying food/gear for camping anyway.

    Thanks! ~John
