FIVE THINGS is a feature on the Banjo Brothers Blog. These short interviews explore life and bicycles with notable people. Since 2007 Chris Skogen has been producing barrier-free cycling events in the state of Minnesota.
The most famous of his events, the Almanzo 100, is often referred to as the "granddaddy" of them all for its pole position in the explosion of gravel road bicycle ride around the country. While other events have diverged from Skogen's "always free" business model, Skogen continues to shake up the paradigm in his crusade to simply get more people on bikes.
