Our research trip is over and we are ready for a great spring and summer. Here are our spring hours.
Full summer hours begin in June. Watch for special hours as we have numerous events going on in May and June including 5 area mountain bike events.
Ojibwe Trail to open soon
If all goes according to plan the Ojibwe Mountain Bike trail out of Cable should open May 1. Trails in Bayfield County are scheduled to open first so the Ojibwe could be the first CAMBA ride of the year. With all of the hoopla over the new trails it may have been a while since you have ridden the Ojibwe. Start at the North End trail head and follow the newly built bench cut ascent heading south. This is a beautiful trail that combines some of the new machine cut berms with old school singletrack. You'll see few people and get a chance to brush up on your biking skills with lots of ups and downs through a variety of forest types.
Molly and The Danger Band - Saturday March 14
After a beautiful day in the forest, celebrate St. Paddy's Day with Molly and the Danger Band! We'll be pouring some great stouts, bocks and ales to celebrate our Irish heritage. This will be a great night! We have table seating for 110. See you soon.
Thanks for a great Fat Bike Birkie week!
Thanks to the hundreds of racers and supporters that found their way to the Rivers Eatery for the Fat Bike Birkie. We hope you enjoyed the experience. It was a pleasure serving you. See you next year... or maybe at the Fat Bike Birkie, The Mt. Borah Epic, The Hungry Bear 100, The Cheq 100, The Cable Classic or the Chequamegon Fat Tire Festival - all in the forest surrounding the lovely village of Cable WI.

Annie Hart's Rivers Eatery Birkie Blog
Annie is a world class skier, gifted writer, great friend and a former Rivers employee.
Fat Biking and Ski Paradise
We have about 12 inches of clean snow on the ground and it is a winter wonderland. We should have snow for some time now as temps fall back to normal. Snowshoe, fat bike, ski, hike, snowmobile, ice fish, sled...it's perfect. Enjoy the finest winter conditions in the country then come by for a stone oven pizza and a microbrew. See you soon.
Remember, you don't need groomed trails to ride in the least travelled national forest in the country. We have thousands of miles of forest roads. I recently rode for 32 miles one afternoon and never saw a human being. Stay off designated snowmobile trails. You may ride on multi use forest roads but be aware that snowmobiles can also use those roads and they go fast and don't stop well. Have fun.
Congrats to Ben, Annie and Paige!!! Three of our favorite people, skiers and former employees Annie Hart, Paige Schember and Ben Saxton all qualified for the U23 World Championships in Kazakhstan! Both Annie and Ben were powered by Rivers Eatery pizza before nationals - along with a million calories from other sources. Nonetheless, we take great pride in congratulating these great skiers and role models. Current employees Niki Reker and Scott Harrison also had great weeks at nationals. Eli Hancock, a Cable high school student and Niki both reached the podium at the Sisu Fest in Michigan as well.
Saturday 12- 8
Additional hours during event weeks and for special activities
Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives recently showcased breakfast at two of our favorite local restaurants - The Delta Diner in Delta, WI and The Brick House Café in Cable. Both are locally owned and operated by true foodies doing their own version greatness. Stop by. You won't be disappointed.
We opened The Ideal Market and The Rivers Eatery on June 18, 2008.
