Re: Going to Newfoundland mid July
When I did it on the GS I used the B&B's and would highly recommend it as the sites are great and people even greater!
The ferry service will provide large, truck like, straps to anchor your bike so I would recommend you purchase the small individual straps without the metal hooks that will be more manageable to use on your bike and act as a hook for the large strap... you would need two of these.
The short ferry will take you to Port aux Basque, as you know. Going right from there will take you along a nice little ride to some small towns at the waters edge but great scenery. Turn left and you head towards Stephenville and Corner Brook, and onto Gross Morne where I stayed at Norris Point. You can then decide to go further north in the park or get back on the Trans Canada to go further aroung the island. I headed to Twillingate but there are too many nice places, you will have no trouble discovering!!
