|Join us for a fun evening of Adventure, Tech, socializing, and free refreshments/snacks at Cyclova XC!|
This is a series of evening events held here at Cyclova XC where we invite folks with tales of epic adventures, great photos or videos to share on said adventures, and pair it up with a tech presentation on a similar and relevant topic!
We are kicking this season's Adventure & Tech series out with a bang - join us in welcoming acclaimed author Dan Woll, and we'll be following up Dan's adventure presentation with just about everything you ever wanted to know about Fat Bikes - and how to dress while out fat biking! The details follow:
6 p.m. on Thursday, December 8, 2016 - An Evening with Dan Woll, author of newly released book, "Further" and Fat Bike Exploration with Frank Lundeen
Adventure: Dan Woll author and seasoned adventurer, will guide you deeper into the magical state of mind known as North of Highway 8 as he shares tales from his new book, Further. Dan will entertain you with stories spanning everything from the Wilderman Triathlon to biking across the country. Autographed copies of Further and North of Highway 8, will be available for purchase that night. You can also find Dan's inspirational and fun writings in Silent Sports and even occasionally in a CyclovaXC blog.
Tech: Frank Lundeen, co-owner of Cyclova XC, discusses the trends and technologies in the rapidly expanding fat bike industry - including how to dress for success while out on your fat bike - keeping you dry, comfortable, and warm (but no too warm). Frank will lead this presentation dressed for a cold day of fat biking - and discuss the purpose of each layer. After discussing how to dress for fat biking, Frank will lead a presentation on the history of fat biking, tech tips, and the winter gear that bites back at our harsh Midwest winters. Get the low-down on trail grooming techniques and machines, the volunteers behind our trails, and the benefits of riding on groomed snow versus back-country powder. They say "Fatter is Funner"- come find out why!
