Cable, Wis., (Sept.17, 2022) /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – The 2022 Life Time ​​Chequamegon MTB Festival presented by Trek, owned and produced by Life Time (NYSE: LTH), brought 2,800 riders to northern Wisconsin on Saturday. As a family-focused weekend, participants rode one of three distances – Chequamegon 40-miler, Short & Fat 16-miler, or Little Loggers loop. Riders ranged in age from 2 to 80 years old, representing 38 states and 4 countries.

“We enjoyed welcoming all riders and spectators to the Life Time Chequamegon MTB Festival presented by Trek in its 39th year,” said Peter Spencer, Event Manager at Life Time. “The local communities, volunteers and entire race staff were proud to go above and beyond to provide a memorable experience for all who make the trek to revel in the Northwoods of Wisconsin”.

This unique point-to-point course begins in downtown Hayward, Wis. and follows parts of the famed American Birkie Cross-country Ski Trail, taking racers on forest roads and snowmobile trails with short, punchy climbs throughout Sawyer and Bayfield counties to the finish line at the Great Hall in Cable, Wis.
