Route 212 - Route 210 - Harbour Mille - Burin Peninsula

Newfoundland / Labrador ... > Canada > America
August 14, 2010 - 5 star route rating Motorcycle Road5.0
This is probably the best ride on the Burin peninsula. Its a combination of shoreline and low mountains so it twists a lot. There are some really outstanding views and Harbour Mille is an outport typical of the type of fishing village that had no road access until very recently. If using a GPS be certain that your route takes you via Jacques Fontaine as theres a secondary inland route as well. On the coastal section there are other small communities on short branching roads that are worth a look.

Cook's Brook - Lark Harbour

Newfoundland / Labrador ... > Canada > America
August 13, 2010 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0
This is a route that winds along the south shore of Bay of Islands and has great views of the mountains and shoreline. Cooks Brook to Frenchmans Cove is a mixture of rural and villages but has some good scenery and corners. Good ride from Frenchmans Cove to Lark Habour.as it is mostly rural and winds along the base of Blow Me Down Mountain. Spectacular scenery past Frenchmans Cove. Speed limit is a ridiculously low 60 kph or less but locals travel about 80 sometimes more. Because of moose, use extreme caution in early mornings or late evenings and avoid night riding.
