Get the most out of these amazing Superior Municipal Forest trails as you run, bike, and ski them during resurrection of the Stride, Ride, Glide Tri! Similar to the Pole, Pedal, Pant of years past, the Stride, Ride Glide will be a 5kish run on a flat snow covered dirt road, a 10kish bike on a very scenic snow covered dirt road with a few hills thrown in, and a 10kish ski on a mix of wide, flat as a pancake trail and hilly as heck trail!
Route will be out of the "yellow" trail, the run will go left out of the lot, down to the gate and back and it is flat. The bike portion will go straight out of the lot, down the road past the yellow trail start, along the bay to the gate and back. Fat bikes are really not necessary! In the old days when we had this and the Pole, Pedal, Pant Fat bikes were not an option! We all used our mountain bikes with lower tire pressure, some of the more talented used skinny tires too! I personally think a fat bike will be slower!The ski will be out the purple trail, which will join to the yellow and back ( if done in time, otherwise yellow out and back). Ski will be groomed for skate, no tracks.
No snowshoes or spikes allowed during the run. Classic or skate technique may be used in the ski, course will be groomed for skate only. Any type of bike may be used as long as it is a single person bike without a motor!
No Headphones, dogs or strollers sorry! 3 Hour time limit unless weather creates adverse conditions! Sorry but there will be no headphones, dogs or spectators allowed on the course during the event at any time. Once participants have finished their race we also ask that they either use the road heading away from the event or the purple trail to cool down.
All proceeds will go towards new, more efficient grooming equipment for the trails.
