PRESS RELEASE: Cane Creek Cycling Components

For the sixth consecutive year, Cane Creek Cycling Components is proud to announce the Pisgah Project Bike Raffle.

Over the last five years The Pisgah Project has raised over $175,000 for the Pisgah Conservancy. Made possible by Cane Creek Cycling Components with support from YT Industries, Industry Nine, Crankbrothers, Fizik Saddles, Continental Tires, Thomson Bike, TRP Cycling and Endless Bike Co.

Over the years the Pisgah Project and Cane Creek have brought together a group of premium cycling component manufacturers to build a very special bike with a truly selfless purpose.


The Pisgah Project Raffle has directly benefited and supported the Pisgah Conservancy. By participating in the Pisgah Project Raffle, supporters invest in clean streams, maintained trails and a thriving environment for future generations to enjoy. The unique aspect of The Pisgah Conservancy is that it unifies the community. Mountain bikers, hikers, equestrians, backpackers, fishermen and the rest of the user groups all have a voice. This year's Pisgah Project bike is built from premium products sourced from local manufacturers and as well as global partnering companies who truly care about the well-being and prosperity of the Pisgah National Forest’s Ranger District.

Win this Bike - Support the Pisgah National Forest
The 2022 Pisgah Project raffle will run from October 28nd, through December 14th, 2022. Riders will receive one entry into the raffle for every $25 they donate to the Conservancy.

A primary goal of The Pisgah Conservancy is to enhance the recreational experience of visitors to Pisgah while protecting the rich natural resources that attract them in the first place. Construction and maintenance of infrastructure in the District, including trails, trailheads, buildings, monuments, parking lots, and other facilities will play a central role in accomplishing this mission. At the time of the founding of TPC, a substantial majority of the trails on Pisgah do not satisfy the National Quality Standards for Trails. For as long as TPC exists, our goal will be that 100% of the trails are upgraded to meet those standards - Protecting Pisgah’s natural resources and supporting the fantastic recreation that our forest and community fosters.
