YOU'RE INVITED:  6 p.m. on Thursday, December 3, 2015 at Cyclova XC:

As always these events are FREE and open for all to attend!  There will be an intermission between the two presentations with snacks, beverages and plenty of time for socializing!  For the full Winter-Spring 2015-16 Adventure and Tech Social Series line-up click here

Adventure:  Dan Woll, local author and seasoned adventurer, shares tales from his cabin on North Pipe Lake and his various athletic feats, including the Wilderman, a grassroots off-road ultra endurance triathlon.  Dan will be accompanied by his beloved and furry side-kick "Bosko" the Bernese Mountain Dog.  Copies of Dan's multiple books, including North of Highway 8, will be available for purchase that night - get your autographed copies and curl up this Winter for some good laughs!

Tech:  Frank Lundeen, co-owner of Cyclova XC, will discuss ultralight camping gear - specifically as it pertain to bikepacking (camping on your bike).  There will be a presentation, discussion, and unloading of the gear off of Frank's touring bike (as in the photo below).  Learn about the products that truly lighten your load, keep you comfortable, and will go the distance with ease!  Whether you want to pack up for a quick overnight in our local Wisconsin Sand Barrens or attempt the Tour Divide, you can travel light as a feather and maximize your space and energy for the journey.
