Quest for route Nova Scotia-New Foundland-Quebec-Montreal
My plan is to start ride from Halifax and around New foundland, down to Quebec and end up in Montreal.
If somebody have any input on this it will help me a lot because i know very little about Canada.
I plan to go in August-September to avoid traffic, insects and expensive beds.
-Is it best to bicycle on the north of Nova Scotia or south. If i go north i will bike thru the highland natural park and probably less traffic but it will be a longer trip than compared to bike the south of the island?
-Does it matter if i start my trip around New foundland from Channel Port-aux-Basques or from Placentia Bay?, ups and downs will probably be the same?, and what about wind directions?
-Someone on the forum said that following the railway from Moncton and down to Quebec is a easy way with little traffic, after studying the map it looks like it is.
-From Quebec to Montreal it seem to me that its best to ride thru Ste Croix and down to Sorel.
-Does it exist bears in this areas?
-Is it enough to only carry a summer sleeping-bag in August - September in this part of Canada?
-How long time should a average tourer that have plenty of time calculate for this trip?
