Chequamegon MTB Festival

Revel in the Woods

September 19, 2020

The adventure begins. Join thousands of off-road enthusiasts for the 38th annual Chequamegon MTB Festival in the big woods of northwestern Wisconsin.


It is absolutely our goal to host the 38th annual Chequamegon MTB Festival presented by Trek on it’s originally scheduled date of September 19th, 2020, but in the event that we are unable to safely hold the event, the following options will be offered to our 2020 riders:

  1. Defer your entry to the 2021 Chequamegon MTB Festival presented by Trek, at no additional cost through September 17, 2020
  2. Receive a 70% refund of your 2020 Chequamegon MTB Festival presented by Trek entry fee through September 17, 2020

We will communicate any further updates as they become available. Best wishes to our entire Chequamegonland community, and we hope you and your loved ones stay safe & healthy during these trying times.

With any questions, contact Peter Spencer.

Thank you,
Your Cheq Team
