Frigid Frolic benefits Emmaus

During the 7th annual Frigid Frolic on New Year’s Day, almost 100 people bicycled 10 miles around the Presque Isle Peninsula. Yes, it was a physical challenge but they also made it a good deed – cyclists collected blankets, hats, scarves, gloves, and other warm items for cold weather for the guests of Emmaus Ministries and Community Shelter Services.

Eric Webber, the organizer of the event, said: “It’s something to do on New Year’s Day other than sitting at home. It’s a good way to start the year.”

The Frigid Frolic ride is free and open to everyone. Most ride bicycles but some have walked or even cross-country skied around the peninsula. Most also bring donations, including one man this year who was unable to attend the event but still gave a donation of warm gloves for the guests of Emmaus.
