May 16-22: Pedal with a Purpose and Help Raise Funds for Basalt Middle School

Help raise funds for Basalt Middle School in a virtual bike-a-thon May 16-22. Hop on a bicycle and participate in the fundraiser. Participants can register here for a 1-, 10- or 25-mile distance on a road, gravel or mountain bike, or even a strider or stationary bike. The mileage doesn’t have to be accumulated at once. Riders can choose what trails to ride and what day or days of the week to ride. The fulfillment of the riding is purely on the honor system, so no excuses. It’s the honor system on whether you complete your mileage, but we know everyone will keep it real.

You may register individually ($20 per adult, $10 per child) OR register your family (up to 5 participants) as a ‘family entry’ to receive a capped entry fee of $50. Once you’ve completed your ride(s)…post your pictures to Facebook or Instagram with the hashtag #Bike4BMS and be randomly selected to win a Hydropack and Bookbinders gift certificate!

The first 150 people to register will receive an awesome event bike water bottle.  Each registrant will also receive one raffle ticket to be entered to win one of our amazing raffle prizes.

Poet and artist Precious Okoyomon transformed the Aspen Art Museum rooftop, installing a mixture of sculpture and organic matter to create a garden based on themes of pleasure, abundance, and desire. Okoyomon will be in residence in Aspen on multiple occasions, developing and transforming the project over its entire duration, making it a live and responsive commission that will literally grow and replenish over time.Okoyomon will also introduce a series of collaborations with musicians to create organic soundtracks for the garden that will follow the changing seasons. Each musician will use a combination of external samples and sounds recorded from within the garden to compose an individual response to it. Visitors will be encouraged to move throughout the garden while respecting protocol for social distancing to experience these multisensory (and in part, edible) elements.The exhibition is curated by AAM Curator at Large Claude Adjil.#aspenartmuseum#openingreception#artmatters#aspenevents#aspenartmuseum ...

Courtney Sanders, Founder of The Bipolar Design will be there tonight at Aspen Strong: Promoting Mental Health in the Roaring Fork Valley Time to Talk.Bipolar Divine provides a platform of resources for those who suffer from bipolar disorder. Courtney has experienced all aspects of the spectrum and when she was so hypo manic that she forgot what language she spoke, or so depressed that she couldn’t walk her dog, there weren’t resources or options outside of the classic arsenal of psychiatric drugs that are so commonly prescribed in the U.S. Courtney spent years on medications. Some made her hair fall out, some made her gain weight, some lose weight. Some destroyed the biome of her stomach, but all of them compromised the equilibrium of her mind. She would spend the better part of ten years carrying shame and trying to be perfect within the bipolar experience— which only exacerbated her symptoms. Courtney went off her meds and tried self-medicating.#timetotalk#supportingmentalhealth#aspenstrong ...
