Hi aaall you southerners. FROM the Eastern Arctic

Hi all just joined. I"m from Canada in northern Quebec on the eastern hudson bay coast 58.5 parrallel "eastern arctic". I'm about top become a retired music Engineer-producer of Inuit music. Probably end of this year or next. Besides that I work as an Educator at a Re-Integration Centre.
I used to bike when I was youger, but haven't owned a bike in many, many moons. Two days ago I went and bought four "Raleigh mountain bikes" for the family. Mine is the MTB Tomahawk. So far I like it, but want a more comfortable seat for my Rear bones. It's not the best bike in the world, but like it. I've check a lot of manufacturers out on the web and man you can really spend if you want to, but this will do for us. We've only got 2 klm of asphalt from one end of town to the other, atv trails, gravel roads with a lot of pot holes, washboard, tundra etc... and have snow until june.

It's an open home for people "adults" who have psycological problems and we try to re-Integrate them into society.

Welcome
Joe
Thanks for the welcome. I have to admit that I'm anxious to try out the trails out here, as soon as it gets nice. It's still snowing as I"m writing.

I was looking on Google Earth and found an inlet at 58 30' N 78 15' W. Are you near there? Interesting area, hills and plenty of lakes. Are you going to get everyone there into cycling - I dont expect gas is cheap.
