With the damaging ice storms, winds, and massive amounts of snow, the amount of trail cleanup has been enormous this year. It has been also tough on our equipment and we are struggling to keep up with repairs and grooming efforts. Please consider donating to our Winter Grooming Fund and keep us on the trails.
A Legacy of Trail Advocacy and Community Investment
CAMBA has built one of the best singletrack networks in the nation. With your help, our trails will be even MORE FUN in the future.
When you donate, you can choose where your donations are used within the organization. THE RON BERGIN TRAIL FUND will serve to maintain and update our trails or choose to focus on the ASHWABAY TRAILS. If you donate IN MEMORY OF JOE TIMMERMAN, funds will be used to build our emergency and wayfinding systems, or you can donate to SUPPORT THE WINTER TRAILS. And we always welcome donations to the unrestricted GENERAL FUND and we will use your donation where it is needed most. No matter where you donate, we sincerely thank your generosity.
CAMBA Trail Fund
In August of 2021, CAMBA announced the establishment of The Ron Bergin Trail Fund in honor of Ron Bergin, a founding member of CAMBA and its Executive Director for 26 years. This fundraising initiative with a matching goal was a restricted fund for trail work, including new trails, maintenance, realignment and modernization. Although our goal has been met, the fund lives on as the CAMBA Trail Fund and continues to fund our trails. We are happy to accept one time donations or a pledge for a donation to be applied toward the CAMBA Trail Fund.
Ron’s vision and leadership have propelled the area to one of the premier off-road riding areas in the Upper Midwest, and the nation. In the 26 years that Ron has been the Executive Director at CAMBA, the organization has:
• built over 130 miles of singletrack
• mapped over 250 miles of gravel routes
• created one of the nation’s top winter fat biking experiences with 70 miles of trail
• organized more than 65 events on the trails
• helped organize another 40+ events run by others on the CAMBA trails
• enjoyed literally thousands upon thousands of hours of volunteer efforts
• increased economic impact to $7.8 million annually in Bayfield and Sawyer Counties
Ron himself has spent at least 25,000 hours over the past decades doing everything he can to promote, build and maintain the CAMBA trail network. “My involvement with CAMBA has truly been a labor of love”, noted Ron recently. Whether he is carrying out administrative duties, flagging a trail, running a chainsaw, swinging a trail tool, dodging aggressive insects or defending his dog from a rogue bear (ask him about that story sometime), Ron has always been on the case to make the CAMBA trails what they are.
All of us who love the trails are eternally grateful and owe a huge debt of gratitude for everything Ron has done to propel off-road cycling in northern Wisconsin. Our trail network and organization would not be the same without Ron.
