A Langford, B.C., motorcycle shop worker plans to ride across the
country and up one of the coldest roads on the east coast – in the
middle of winter.
Paul Mondor rode across the country last winter and plans to do it again in January, but he’ll add 1,500 km of Trans-Labrador Highway to the trip this time, according to an item in the Prince Albert Daily Herald.
The long-distance truck driver and motorcyclist once trained in cold-weather survival with the military, but he acknowledges that the Labrador ice highway in particular will be dangerous. He’ll ride a 650 BMW with a sidecar loaded with survival items.
