Skull-N-Bones Gravel Challenge 100/50/25

Bruce WI
Skull-N-Bones Gravel Challenge 100/50/25

Tag line:

This will be an annual bike challenge held in the blue hills of northern WI. This event is not for the faint of heart. Participants will be tested mentally, physically and emotionally by the hills and valleys of this majestic wilderness. Come no further if ye not be persons of valor for challenges await that would stop other cyclists in there tracks. Grind gravel!

Overview and description:

A gravel grinder is a bicycle race that takes place mostly on gravel roads. These events have seen lots of success in the past few years in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Kansas and Michigan. The popularity has grown very large in the last few years so much that the Almanzo 100 in southern MN had over 2000 participants this summer. The Blue hills have a great abundance of great gravel roads this is what inspired me to create the Skull-N-Bones Gravel Challenge. The Skull-N-Bones differs in a few ways from your typical Gravel grinder with a few very important similarities. Great people and it's absolutely free to ride. The differences are. It's not timed and it's not a race. You can choose to race it if you wish but it's more of a group ride then a race. No cut off time and if you finish the course you finish the challenge.


The Ride:

Hello this is Skull-N-Bones founder Chris Locke. This is the basic rundown of the event. The peer ride registration and cue sheet pick up will start at 6:00am. on September the 20th at the Bruce fire hall in Bruce WI. Rollout will be as follows. 100 Mile 8:00 / 50 Mile 8:30 / 25 Mile 9:00 there will be a peer ride briefing before each start and all are welcome to attend. No registration fee is required and this is a self supported event. Witch means no sag wagon. There are many options to cut the ride short so if you are running out of gas there is always a shorter option home. If you drop out please call and check in to let us know your status. Drop number will be provided at registration.


After Ride Festivities:

After checking in at the fire hall ride just does the street to Glory B's Irish Pub for food drinks and after ride fun.


Tee Shirts:

A tee shirt order form will be available for all who are interested in purchasing a shirt. They will be shipped to you about 2 weeks after the ride. Shirts will be produced by Tee spring.

My story:

My name is Chris Locke. Over the past 2 years I have gone from couch potatoes to a very serious cyclist. My passion has been Road / Gravel Road, Single Track and Snow Biking. I have lost over 100 pounds In the process and I have never felt better. I credit my Daughter Axanna for changing my life and giving me the drive to be healthier. I now want to give other a taste of what I love by bringing events and opportunities to our local aria. For starters the Skull-N-Bones.

National Recovery Month Event - with William Cope Moyers

UW-Stout Student Memorial Center, Menomonie, WI Private Reception at 5:00 PM (contact Arbor Place to find out how you can attend) Public Address at 7 PM
Arbor Place, Inc. will bring nationally known author and speaker William Cope Moyers. Moyers, son of public television personality Bill Moyers, has personal and professional experience with addiction, treatment and recovery. He is the author of “Broken: My Story of Addiction and Redemption,” a New York Times bestseller now in its third printing. The center is sponsoring an informal “community read” before the event.

Arbor Place, tucked away in a small building in Menomonie on the north side of the Mayo Clinic Medical Center since 1976, broke ground for a new, expanded facility in the Stout Tech Park in July. The $5.2 million project, funded by a USDA Rural Development grant and local support, will allow the non-profit, 501c3 agency to enhance current programming and expand services.


A reception at 5 p.m. before the talk is a major fundraising event for Arbor Place. Members of the 100 Women group with a pledge of $1000 (over 5 years that's $200/year) will have their name inscribed in the Healing Garden, an open-air, plant-filled courtyard at the new facility in which people whose lives are in chaos can find some quiet serenity.

For more information about the 100 women group, contact Jill Gamez at Arbor Place, 715 235 4537. The mission of Arbor Place, Inc. is to provide prevention, treatment, renewal, & recovery opportunities to individuals, families, and communities impacted by substance abuse & dependence and mental health disorders.

FERTILE GROUND: WHERE POSSIBILITY MEETS WELCOME
Exhibit runs from Tuesday, September 2 to Wednesday, September 24
Artist Reception: Friday, September 5 from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m.

Every now and then the right elements come together to make something extraordinary happen. At the Episcopal Cathedral in Eau Claire, the seeds of artistry seem to have landed on good soil. Fertile Ground is an exhibition of artwork at the Heyde Center for the Arts in September 2014, composed of work from some of the award winning and influential artists currently connected to Christ Church Cathedral, photographer Hope Greene, sculptor Catelyn Mailloux and painter Constance Denchy.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS

The Question Lakes: photographic prints by Hope Greene
Hope Greene is an internationally exhibited artist living in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, where her studio is housed in a small dairy barn. An advocate for bringing art and artists into everyday life, she founded and directs the Artist in Residence program at Christ Church Cathedral and is a contributing writer for Volume One. Greene is currently one of the nine artists participating in the CSA program through the Eau Claire Regional Arts Center.

Sculpture by Catelyn Mailloux
Catelyn Mailloux, a native of Minnesota, is a recent graduate in art and education at UWEC. She is one of the two Artists in Residence at the Cathedral. Mailloux won first place at the 2012 Confluence of Art Biennial and her work has recently been featured at Janet Carson Gallery in Eau Claire. This past summer, she completed work on a collaborative sculpture for the new education building on the UWEC campus.

Splash and All: paintings on plastic wrap by Constance Denchy
Constance Denchy was born in West Hampton Beach, Long Island NY. She graduated with a BFA from the the University of the Arts in 1987 with a series of paintings called Infant Images that by 1996 became a fellowship award winning series, from the Delaware Division of the Arts, called Infant Equations. Since that time, she has exhibited in several states and in Japan. In 2008, Ms Denchy became a PCA AiE State Roster Artist, which allowed her to continue developing her Infant Equations Theory, while also creating proactive collaborative community projects in over 55 site venues since 2008. More recently, since March of 2010, Ms. Denchy made a solo debut of her Infant Equations using a technique she calls: “a clear wrap” using cling wrap as canvas.
