I’ve had the opportunity to run this 700-km section of highway multiple times over the past couple of years. Loading up the saddlebags on the Suzuki Canada motorcycles allowed me to explore both hotels and camping along the way. The ride offers scenic views, winding roads, home-cooked meals, and memories that will keep you coming back to Algoma Country.
It’s no secret that construction comes into play when travelling during the summer months. There are certain sections that are down to one lane for short periods, but for the majority of stretch the roads are in great condition. It isn’t hard to notice the amount of work that has gone into maintaining the highway. Smooth corners, plenty of space for passing, and great elevation changes would score this road an 8/10 in its current condition. I have no doubt that this will approach a higher rating within the next couple of years.
