Self-supported race (no outside support to riders).

With an option of either one hundred, sixty-two, or thirty miles of sweet northern Wisconsin dirt, with the great majority of it on singletrack, the Cheq 100 is the first endurance event to be held on the great CAMBA system trails.

Based on the self-supported ethos that has gained popularity with other events, the Chequamegon 100 will continue the tradition of self-reliance, riders that finish through determination. 100% of all entry fees go directly to cycling advocacy.

www.Chequamegon100.org has been set up to provide all the race details and create a central place for riders to communicate. As we draw closer to the event, organizers will be providing details on camping, meet up locales, and the final route selection.

All three commentators above are correct. The Rick Lake loop is the reference standard in my head for challenging old school single track. If that’s your thing, this is your trail. I felt like I had to ride it, but for my money, I wouldn’t do it twice. More challenging than fun. I’d much rather do repeats of Seeley Pass/Flow Mamma, fine modern trail building that’s great for various levels. The Ojibwa trail will meet everyone in the middle with a mix of challenge and fun and is a better trail to re-ride than Rock Lake.

One of the best trails in the state. If you’re riding the Camba trails, Flow Mamma is #1 on your list and Seeley Pass is #2. Put them together, as they naturally go, and you’ll be a very happy mountain biker.

This is a great old school trail. Lots of fun rocky spots, it's old school and the way mountain bike trails should be made. Taking advantage of, and displaying the attributes of the land. Not changing it into a bermed smooth highway for beginners. Have no idea what that first commentor is talking about, this is a well designed trail that's a ton of fun if you're a decent mountain biker, and I found no spots that were too tight for handlebars.

This trail will really challenge your leg power with many technical large rocky climbs. If you like old school gnarly singletrack this is a great trail for it. Rock gardens, tight trees, big roots all make for some sweet suspension pounding fun! You won't find much "flow" here though.

Love the old school trail challenge. Low speed technical ride. Advance riders only.

Great trail. Flows well and Camba is reworking some of this trail improving some of the corners and flow.

Expect a poorly designed, rocky, rooty decent to the trail head on this section with tight trees. The local riders prefer other trails.

Combine this with Danky Dank and you will have a fun ride. This is a hand built trail so very much old school minus the tight trees. Lots of rocks, roots and sharp corners. Easy access from Rock Lake Road.

This is one of my favorite trails in Camba. There are some quirky poorly designed spots and many of the down hills are interrupted With tight turns and or poorly placed rock gardens. It doesn’t have all the tight trees Camba seems to like.

This trail was mostly dried out after the recent rains, but holy cow were the mosquitoes thick! Bring your bug spray. Other than that trail was clear. Be prepared for slow crawling over roots and rocks though-just he nature of the hand-built trail. Hats off to CAMBA for maintaining these long, semi remote sections of trail.
