Have you rode it before?
Are there a lot of mosquitoes and insects to deal with that far north in August/?
I rode the 2017 edition, it was my first 1200. I don't recall having much problem with bugs, would only really run into them if you stop and wander into the bush. The 2023 plan is to start in Ottawa and do 2 loops out of the town of Bancroft and then ride back to Ottawa... it'll be similar in elevation to the previous version, and still have the ride across Algonquin Park which is awesome. The draft version of the days is here, at the bottom of that page... the club pushed it to 2022 on account of covid.
