The Lost Wheels @ Varsity Theater | MORC 20th Anniversary Gala – Nov 9th, 2014

We are very happy to be playing both an acoustic and electric set at the Varsity Theater for MORC’s (Minnesota Off-Road Cyclists) 20th Anniversary Gala on Nov 9th, 2014.

MORC 20th Anniversary Gala

MORC’s Background

MORC is a non-profit organization dedicated to “gaining and maintaining trails” since 1994. These are off-road mountain and bmx bike trails for all ages to enjoy around the Twin Cities metro. With 2014 being our 20th anniversary as a non-profit we are celebrating by throwing a BIG party!

To celebrate the Minnesota Off-Road Cyclists are hosting the 20th Anniversary Gala Sunday, November 9th from 2-7 pm at the Varsity Theater in downtown Minneapolis. This event will be aimed at raising funds for our 2015 season as well as our efforts to become the International Mountain Biking Association’s first designated ‘Ride City’ which requires a major metropolitan area to have 100+miles of designated single track mountain bike trail…we are very close. We are currently developing the Three Rivers Park area at Lake Rebecca that will secure this designation but it is going to take a lot of blood, sweat, tears and dollars to complete a project of this scope but it is sure to be amazing!

This will be a formal dinner event that includes guest speakers; Paul Douglas, Steve Flagg (President QBP), Hansi Johnson (formerly IMBA now MN Land Trust) and Libby Hurley (MN High School Mountain Bike League) as well as live and silent auctions to support MORC’s efforts moving forward.

Tickets are now on sale here.

Also….do you get the irony that our band The Lost Wheels is playing a cycling event?????

    • I was there and was thoroughly imeepssrd by the sense of optimism and cooperation in the air. A fun and interesting evening. If nothing else, I met several other citizens like myself who want to see Chapel Hill become an even better place to live.
