Bill Metz and pals from the Cannon Valley Velo Club and SAVE (Suicide Awareness Voices of Education) hosted the 9th annual Tour de Nick bicycle tour yesterday. The event raised over $6,000.
Riders were joined by Delicia Jernigan who’s riding from Portland OR to Portland ME on her So Many Roads Tour which is:
… dedicated to raising awareness of suicide statistics, the survivors they leave behind, and bringing inspiration to anyone that has suffered from depression and loss.

Bill Metz stopped by my corner office at GBM yesterday morning to deliver the print that Robbie and I acquired at the Big Ring: 2nd Gear Art Auction last week at Angry Catfish Bicycle and Coffee Bar in south Mpls. The event was a benefit for SAVE (Suicide Awareness Voices of Education).
The artist, Northfielder Marybeth Coyle-Frederick, happened to stop in for coffee so I got her to pose with Bill and her donated piece. Bill said the event raised over $3,000.
Scenes from the after-auction party:
Three weeks ago, I stopped by the Angry Catfish Bicycle and Coffee Bar in south Mpls on my way to the Cuyuna Lakes Whiteout. I wanted to take some photos so that I could promote this week’s Big Ring: 2nd Gear Art Auction that’s hosted there. The event, a benefit for SAVE (Suicide Awareness Voices of Education), features many Northfield-area artists among the 17 and is being organized by Northfielder Bill Metz.
I met the owner, Joshua Klauck, and the general manager, Ben Rogowski, who graciously posed for a photo with the poster for the event.
You can see some of the artwork that’s been donated by the artists on the event’s Facebook page where Bill has been busy posting updates and photos.
