Great report, mcuri! You went all alone?? How many tires did you have with you?

Anyway, what are those gravel roads you took? I thought the main road was paved all the way to Ushuaia. And I can't see from the photos, was there control at the border between Argentina and Chile, where you crossed it?

And the ultimate question: were you scared?

Yes, I went alone. I only had my reposition tire and I didnīt use it. All the way to Ushuaia is paved by now (Ruta 3) that goes near the sea. At the time of my trip (2005) the last 100km of gravel were being sealed. But on my way back I took Ruta 40 that goes bordering the Andes, and this is most of the time a gravel road.

There are control posts at the borders, like these:






About being scared, no way!! I love overland travels, itīs a therapy for me! Now Iīm planning to go to Lima, Peru by the Transocean highway, via the Amazon and the Andes. It will be totally paved by 2010 but I want to go before, more funny!!!

The Trans-Taiga Road / Route Transtaïga

No one else with experiences? Fine.

Here you can find many pictures of the Trans-Taiga Road, the most remote road in North America (745 km (463 mi) from the nearest town!), running through the middle of Quebec and the Labrador Peninsula. Worth a click!

Junction of the James Bay Road (paved) with the Trans-Taiga Road:


Beginning of the Trans-Taiga Road:

I recommend checking out many of the other bike trips on: http://www.crazyguyonabike.com/

Many of them are simply fascinating.
