In keeping with our refresh theme, we had yet another change here at the Moon last week…we finally got new flooring! The gray carpeting downstairs lasted quite a while but you know it’s hard not to traipse in dust and dirt and wax and bike grease or whatever those guys in the back roll onto the floor (Chris and Dusty, I’m looking at you!). So, we have beautiful new flooring! The pattern and color really classes up the log chalet, and I’m sure the clothes will really pop when we get the downstairs floor switched over to our winter apparel.
Upstairs will still be carpet, to be redone in November. We wouldn’t want you to have cold feet while trying on ski boots!
Before and after shots of the floor. Of course, the guys had to skid around with bikes on the carpet before the replacement. John gives us his approval.
Obviously, we here at New Moon love the American Birkebeiner and all the snowy ski events, we ride in the Fat Bike Birkie, and we hike on the Birkie Trail all year long. But the Birkie puts on another event called the Birkie Trail Run Festival that New Moon employees have not been as active in as some of the others.
The new school year is in session, and so is the new model year of bikes. In the style of the original “Facebook” of old, in which new incoming students would get a brief bio and welcome, we’ve done the same for our bikes. So, whether you’re lusting after the newest hot tickets, or hoping to scoop up one of our outgoing “seniors” on a deal, you’ll surely fall in love with one of these!
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.
