Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, and social distancing recommendations, the Bike the Barn Quilts ride presented by ThedaCare is going remote.  This will allow our supporters to choose the activities they want to do to raise funds for Shawano Pathways and Friends of the Mountain Bay Trail and complete their goals over time.


We would like to use this opportunity to have our very first global event.  It doesn’t matter where you are in the world, you can get involved.  We appreciate that these are unprecedented times both financially and socially but with a little imagination we can still do great things!

We Need You

Shawano Pathways is the primary fundraiser and promoter for creating a network of public trails and greenways in Shawano County.  This annual event has helped support Shawano Pathways' projects, and new for 2020, a portion of the proceeds will help support the new Shawano County chapter of the Friends of the Mountain Bay Trail.


Funds are needed to:

  • To promote the importance of greenways and trails to the quality of life within the community.
  • To plan for and facilitate the development, implementation, and improvement of a greenway and trails network within Shawano County and adjacent areas for recreation and alternative transportation.
  • To sponsor and provide various opportunities for healthy outdoor activities for all ages.

Support Trails while Social Distancing

This remote event is a great chance to have some fun in these challenging times while supporting trails and greenways in Shawano County.  And you don't even have to ride a bike if you don't want to or can't.


Here are some ideas:

  • Ride your bike on a trail or quiet road
  • Ride a stationary bike in your home
  • Run, jog, or walk on your favorite local trail (a treadmill at home also works)
  • Just do something that's active and fun that you enjoy while being safe about it


Download a distance tracker and post your progress toward your fundraising goal in photos and videos on social media using hashtag #BTBQS and tagging Shawano Pathways in your social media posts.
