I have received a few calls from local people in Rose City. It seems that quad riders are using the shoulder of M-33 to ride. YOU CANNOT RIDE ON THE SHOULDERS OF M-33, M-30 or M-55 in Ogemaw County. It is a state maintained highway and is OFF LIMITS to ALL riders unless your ride is licensed by the State of Michigan or another State. I have requested that they call the local authorities about the situation. You WILL receive a ticket. It is against the law. We that live in Ogemaw County ARE NOT exempt from the laws. Locals are just as much at fault as vacationing folks. This law CAN be revolked. You need to make a copy of the current law and read it.
St Helen has opened up some new roads that allows you to get into town and eat and gas up. Remember to read the below post from St Helen so that you know the correct roads.
Also Mio is having a meeting this morning, I guess some of the town is not happy that only certain roads are open in Mio. Looks like people might be able to obtain entrance to the city on other roads. I will try to keep you updated on the road situation there. Tread Lightly! Obey the Rules!!
