Did our riding yesterday west of Eagle River in the Minocqua & Lake Tomahawk area. Rode 70 miles & the conditions were all over the place. Sections of GOOD, FAIR, POOR & YIKES. Started our ride at 21 degrees. Returned at 37 degrees. Jackets unzipped. Shield open. Considering taking off my gloves. THANKS TO MINOCQUA FOREST RIDERS, NEW TOM SNO FLEAS as while thin it was 90% smooth. Shout out to NORTHERN HORNSHOES for hosting a club ride!
Please stay on the trails to keep them trails open.
Catfish & Eagle Lake trails are marked with orange reflective barrels. Surface slush on both lakes. Watch for ice fishing holes on both lakes. The lakes are marked by the businesses on the lake so stop in & thank them when you’re out riding.
