2016 Solstice Chase Entertainment, All Day Food & Beverage Service, And More!

Big Rock Creek Retreat was a fantastic venue for past Solstice Chase events (as in the above pic from 2015) - but for 2016, we're bringing the part to the Woolly Bike Club Groomed Singletrack and the Dalles House Bar and Lounge in St. Croix Falls! Photo Credit:  Ana Pratt
As you've heard by now, we have some exciting changes underway for the 2016 Solstice Chase - changes that we think racers and spectators alike will be very excited about!  In short, plan on bringing your family and friends with to the race.  You'll also want to spend the night and enjoy the huge after party at the Dalles House!  For the full scoop on the Solstice Chase, go to www.solsticechase.com.

First off, we're delighted to have partnered with the Dalles House Bar and Lounge as our event host/venue/start/finish!  The Dalles House is the perfect starting point for the race, with easy bike trail access to the Woolly Bike Club's network of Groomed Singletrack trails.  CLICK HERE for the preliminary scoop on the race course.  Additionally, the Dalles House REALLY knows how to throw a party and take care of their guests - and yes, you can go inside to warm up when ever you'd like!

The Dalles House will have beverage & food service available at the venue throughout the day - from coffee, pastries, beer, and a build your burger bar outside - to their full bar & supper club menu inside!  At 4PM in the afternoon, the Solstice Chase After Party fires up at the Dalles House with the Kurt Jorgenson Band!  With this full weekend of fun, consider one of the amazing hotel specials that we have with our great local hotels
