SepTimber Ride rolls into Eagle River on Sept. 14
August 30, 2019
The 5th annual SepTimber Ride rolls into Eagle River on Saturday, Sept. 14 with the addition of two new road rides. This event now boasts three unique rides — the 60K Northwoods Road Ride, a 100K Northwoods Road Ride and the ever popular 28-mile Three Eagle Trail Ride; all of these rides will benefit the Great Headwaters Trails organization to support the ongoing development of bicycle trails in eastern Vilas County.
All rides begin and end at the Tribute Brewing Company in Eagle River, trail riders will head south along the Three Eagle Trail to sample wine at the Three Lakes Winery before returning while road riders have a choice of routes, 60K or 100K, which also will go to the Three Lakes Winery offering all participants the opportunity to sample their wines. A bratwurst picnic will follow all self-guided rides.
“Now in its fifth year, SepTimber Ride is proof that biking is gaining popularity in Wisconsin’s Northwoods,” Eagle River Chamber of Commerce director Kim Emerson said. “With more than 1,300 lakes and thousands of acres of state and national forest in this area, biking here is unique — particularly during the fall color season.”
A variety of prizes will be raffled off during the brat picnic after the ride. Raffle tickets can be purchased in advance at the Eagle River Area Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Center and The Hiker Box in downtown Eagle River.
Registration for the SepTimber Ride is $50 and includes ride choice — on the Three Eagle Trail or the 60K or 100K Road Ride, a long sleeved wick-away shirt, Old Wisconsin brat picnic, door prizes and wine and beer sampling.
