The great citizen race events in skiing and biking are made great by a special combination of the trails or routes they use, the people that participate, the volunteers, organizers and staffers, and of course, the weather! The 2018 Chequamegon Fat Tire Festival, the “Fat Tire”, certainly lived up to this standard.
Take a listen to Chris & John and hear about all the cool features you may not know about on the CAMBA trails. These hidden gems will challenge and delight you. Have a listen & try them out!

When it comes to preparing for races around the shop, whether they be bike or ski, we try to keep things simple. This sounds much easier than it is. Overthinking, and last minute tinkering always seem to creep in as race day approaches. In our bike world, no other event brings out as many equipment and tech questions, and last minute indecision as the Chequamegon 40 and Short & Fat races.

… as is “pre-Chequamegon FatTire Festival”. The Seeley Lions Pre-Fat is one of the great summer traditions in our area. Known for its low-key and fun-first atmosphere, the Seeley Lions Pre-Fat offers the perfect “warm-up” to the Chequamegon Fat Tire Fest events coming up in September.
Whether you are in town for the Pre-Fat or a local who loves the CAMBA trails, plan to attend Boogie in the Barn, CAMBA’s annual gala fundraising event. Boogie is held at the beautiful Sylvandale Barn from 5-10pm, Saturday, August 18.
Here at New Moon, we’d like to think that everyone knows us or at least knows where to come for ski and bike information.
But we often like to get the word out in other venues to people who may not be as familiar with the Moon. Currently, we have a column in the Visitor Magazine, a local publication geared towards, you guessed it, tourists, about biking in the northwoods. Continue reading New Moon On The Air
