Yep! You're right. That's why we are not just building a pumptrack or just holding giveaways. I did a podcast with BLISTER https://blisterreview.com/featured/eliot-jackson-on-night-owls-bike-culture-the-grow-cycling-foundation-ep-36 that explains our long term vision and you can also go to our website to learn more www.growcyclingfoundation.org! Change doesn't happen overnight, especially when you are tackling the core of the problem :)

Pinkbike community! You guys are amazing! I am so proud to have you all as collaborators as we make progress toward everyone feeling like they belong in the world of cycling. That also includes YOU! When we say everyone, we mean EVERYONE haha. We know it’s hard to get bikes right now and we wanted to do something special for the cycling community that is supporting bringing more people into the sport so Yeti and FOX have gotten together to do a giveaway for a CRAZY expensive and nice bike that you can find here https://go.rallyup.com/e38eff. One of our core tenants is making sure we are providing value. We can do that for you guys by doing giveaways of awesome bikes and making great content (we have a collaboration with Pivot Cycles coming soon) as a few examples. As I said in my quote, the cycling industry coming together for a cause that is bigger than competition is crazy inspiring for me and I feel like it showed here as well. A small update from me: Now that we have moved further in the process of finding a location, we can more accurately estimate the cost of the pumptrack and start to work on getting that cost down. We are now working to partner with development companies to provide asphalt, grading, and labor. In an ideal world, the cost would come down significantly, but we have to account for it being “retail value.” Every dollar that we can reduce the cost by can go to the next initiatives in our long term plan which is programs and building of the community (Local BBQ with a Fat Tire Beer garden anyone?). Never had so many meetings in my life haha! We have had so many great people reach out to help, a designer reached out on Instagram and they are now helping make our newsletter. Some of our partners have even donated marketing and branding resources. We got so many messages and emails talking about just being more empathetic to new people coming into the sport and is something we can all relate to because we were all beginners at one point. It feels like we are doing this together and that’s really cool. Thanks, everyone!

@gemma8788: Thank you so much for the kind words, Gemma! It's OK if you can't donate! The FAQ question about what you can do if you can't donate is so incredibly important and we all have the opportunity in the little interactions we have every day to be a little bit more inclusive and empathetic to others :) Including me!

@yesimaddicted: Thank you!! We have been talking with them at least once a week because this needs to work for people outside AND inside the industry. We couldn't be more proud to have them as a partner.
