Rode 125 miles yesterday with husband Tom & friends from Plymouth, WI. From our home on 10E to town. Rode Bloom Rd to Loon Lk Rd moguled & rough. “Grade” 3/aka Alt 13 to town bumpy from lots of traffic & warm temps. 70W all the way to Eagle River Inn. Groomed to around Oak Ln going west. From there no grooming again until Synergy Salon. Frozen mushy areas in there. From Eagle River Inn 70W into St. Germain trails were groomed & good. Took 15 into town to avoid Little St. Then back out & north to Sayner by 15 & 10. Lots of traffic good to fair with some areas of bigger bumps. Then on up to Boulder using 15 & 11. Lots of traffic with well used trails. 15 to 6 heading to Land o’ Lakes. First section well ridden with lots of traffic. Used north club trails. Mostly road running from Old B to 13 connect. Snow covered all the way. South on 13 toward Conover & Eagle River all the way to 10. Cross WI River Bridge. Icy but solid. Approaches on both sides not groomed. 10/13 to Manske Swamp/3 to 17. No recent grooming & icy. First section of 17 not groomed until after Chain o’ Lks Rd. To the “grade” 10/13 into town. Friends headed to Eagle River Inn we headed down the “grade” to 10E & home.
