    2009 was the first Festival of the Trails. It was a lot of fun.
    A great event.

    thx. It's on my radar. I'm planning on moving just before this event, so things might be too busy this year. I hope not. I'm moving closer to the area anyway (Menomonie)

    It was $75.00 last year, but you got a lot of bang for you bucks! Most folks walked away with more $ is swag than the $75.00 fee.

    I highly recommend this event!! Fun from start to finish!!

    This is a very local event for me (Ashland, WI). I'm definitely going to be there I just need to get my new dawg build finished....2 months is plenty of time to dial it in. Space looks like it is limited to the first 200 riders. Hopefully we see some of you there!

    I just signed up today, is it true that Gary Fisher is making an appearance?

    Also, were do most people camp?

    I am so pumped to go! My first time to bike in that area.

    Questions

    Let me help with the questions:

    No, you do not need to be a CAMBA member to participate (Of course membership is always encouraged to help support the cool things going on in CAMBA country).

    Yes, Gary Fisher is confirmed - more than just a stand up, he'll be hangin'

    Camping, several options. Nearest is KOA if that's your thing. Otherwise there are several places in the national forest - CAMBA website has some of this info.

    Fees are the same as last year: $75 for all three days. You get: Festival hat, one raffle ticket into mega drawing (you can buy more), beer on Friday night, tours on Fri., Sat., Sun., free lunch during Sat. tour, party Sat. night w/ free beer, order off menu; more tours on Sunday, monster swag drawing, cookout with more beer. Lots of fun things, and did I mention beer?

    I agree, I bought a membership.

    Gary Fisher - very cool!

    Not into the KOA, anywhere to camp near enough to ride bike back so that I can take full advantage of the beer? In other words, what is the closest (beside KOA) campground to the beer?

    Where do most bikers stay? That's really the most important.

    Chequamegon,
    How many riders have registered for the F.O.T.? I was "lotterized" for the Chequamegon 40 in September so I'm hoping to get to see part of the course that weekend. I live in Iron River so if I don't see it that weekend I guess I'll run the course sometime this summer. Looking forward to meeting you all there.

    I am not really on top of how many signups this year, but last year we had well over a hundred.

    We can definately show you some of the course, as well as the sweet singletrack!

    Oh yes, and there is beer.

    Some camp, some hotel. A bunch of us are renting a big condo again on the Lakewoods Resort campus...ends up being quite a bit cheaper than the HoJo.
