Lots of riding ahead.
Another cold day yesterday so double grooming. One day time route & one night route. So in 2 days all trails groomed & waiting for the weekend traffic to begin. The drivers are reporting icy under the snow. Many low end of corners have blow outs. But all in all GOOD to VERY GOOD conditions as of this morning. It is March & conditions will change quickly. The sun is out longer & the temps will rise for the weekend. So Ride It While We Got It. I will be updating everyday of the weekend & throughout the week in the early morning. So come on back to see what’s up. Regular season riding right now.
It is zero at 7 am. The future temps are a bit uncertain. Here is what National Weather Service is reporting as of this morning:
Friday High 28 Low 16
Saturday High 31 Low 11
Sunday High 32 Low 18
Logging continues on Trail 10W/13N. The section starts where trail is on Croker Rd to where the trail turns right on the way to the Wisconsin River Bridge on the west side. Coming from the east it is after you cross the Wisconsin River Bridge. It will be marked but there will be logging equipment in there. Rode through there yesterday & it is indeed marked well. Please slow down as you ride through there. There is logging in a few other areas in the County as well.
Eagle Lake Trail & Catfish Lake Loop are marked & OPEN. Stay by the barrels. the sun in March is out longer & there is a ton of ice covered with a ton of snow. There could be surface slush. No ice melting. Snow on top melting. Steady as you go through it. Not all lakes are trails.
KEEP DOIN’ THE SNOW DANCE & THINK COLD!
See ya on the trails!
