Frederic / Gaylord Area Trail Report – Sledheads of Frederic – 03/03

FREDERIC / GAYLORD AREA UPDATE via Sledheads of Frederic – 3/3

Good Morning from Lake Margrethe, its about 11 degrees out this morning. Here we are 3 days into March in whats left of the most dismal sled season in the 25 plus years that Sledheads of Frederic has been open. The U.P. was certainly the place to be riding this season and I believe it still is. The snow conditions around Frederic havent changed much since this past weekend. Still nice and white out there but icy underneath. The forcast for the next few days isnt anything that sounds positive either. There have been a few sleds out and about this week including the group of 4 guys that stopped in yesterday and they were going to try to ride up to the bridge. I told them to let me know if they made it. I do think it was possible thing to do yesterday. Barring a giant storm which of course is possible that there wont be much more riding around here this season. Pic below is the four guys before heading to the bridge and they had rode from 4 mile road to Frederic. On tuesday I saw the Roscommon Groomer making snow dust and grooming on the trail along I 75 from the Ramada to 4 mile road so that was a good site. Also one thing I found interesting on my trip to NYC a couple weeks ago is that most of the food delivery guys in NYC that deliver on their bicycles have gauntlets on their bikes. Look at the pic below. Thats all I have today, you know the same old Blah, Blah, Blah….Thanks for checking in. Pete

Frederic / Gaylord Area Trail Report – Sledheads of Frederic – 02/27

FREDERIC / GAYLORD AREA UPDATE via Sledheads of Frederic – 2/27

It’s sunday morning at Lake Margrethe, About 25 degrees out. Sled traffic was slow saturday but riders were pretty happy with what they were encountering with both good and bad areas. Jack Stevens was in first thing and put a new set of carbides on his sled and a couple hours later he called me and he had made it up to the bridge saying it was a decent ride. Clifford sent in pics from his ride in the u.p. in Moran saying it was really good and that I should get up there. I wish I could make it but I do think I am going to ride around Frederic today.

Someone turned in a tool kit found on I belive on trail 7 near Frederic so if you are missing one give me a call. Also a guy called me and he had his sled stolen from the Hide Away at Starvation Lake Friday nite. Picture of it is below, 2018 850 Renegade X. Thats it for today, I have to get ready to ride….Thanks for checking in. Pete
