Chequamegon MTB Festival presented by Trek

39th edition

Join us on September 17, 2022 for the 39th Annual Chequamegon MTB Festival! To enthusiastic off-road bicyclists from across the country, the annual trek to the Chequamegon (She-wa-me-gon) MTB Festival presented by Trek means off-road racing and fun. Each year in mid-September, thousands of mountain bikers descend on the towns of Cable and Hayward in northwestern Wisconsin to take on the off road bicycle tests of endurance and agility offered throughout the weekend.

From the 27 cyclists who lined up to ride the unknown trails of the Chequamegon at the first Festival in 1983 to the sold-out, limited field that is filled on a first come first served basis, the Festival is one of the nation’s greatest grassroots events. The rolling glacial terrain of the area’s forests provides point-to-point courses that are as beautiful as they are challenging. Combined with the congenial welcome of the Hayward and Cable communities who provide a tireless volunteer army, the support of Presenting Sponsor Trek and a cast of other generous sponsors, the Chequamegon MTB Festival has earned its iconic rank in the sport today.

The event is produced and promoted by Life Time Athletic Events of Chanhassen, Minn. Local event staff brings hundreds of years of combined experience to the race weekend as well as nearly 500 community volunteers.
