Seeley Big Fat Race

On Saturday, January 19, 2019 at 10:00 a.m., the Chequamegon Area Mountain Bike Association (CAMBA) will present the third running of the Seeley Big Fat Race.

The Seeley Big Fat Race is a self-supported, low-key 14-mile fat bike race starting and finishing in Seeley. The race features groomed singletrack and other trails in the Seeley area. There is also a 6-mile option for riders looking for a shorter distance. This is an excellent opportunity to get a taste of some of the great winter bike trails in the Chequamegon area.

The Sawmill Saloon is the place to be for registration before the race and for fun afterwards. Registration is $45 through December 31. From January 1 through race day the registration fee will be $65. Riders may register online at Eventbrite or at the Sawmill Saloon on Friday, Jan. 18 from 6:00-8:00pm and Saturday from 7:30-9:00 am. Registration is limited to 125 participants, and the event is expected to fill.

The Chequamegon Area is quickly becoming a leading destination for winter mountain biking. “This season we will be grooming over 60 miles of trails throughout the region,” says CAMBA winter biking chairman Jerry Wright. “We’ll have fat bike riding options using some of the regular CAMBA singletrack as well as other “winter-only” routes in Hayward, Seeley, Cable, and Bayfield,” he adds.

Thanks to the generous support of Seeley Big Fat race sponsors, all entry fees will go to support winter trail grooming.
