Grow Cycling FAQ

Is Grow Cycling just to help build inclusion for people of color or will you help other marginalized groups as well?

Historically, people of color have been largely underserved in the outdoor industry, so we are starting there with the understanding that the same systems of power that exclude people of color, exclude other marginalized groups as well. Our ultimate goal is for the world of cycling to be representative of the world around us, full of all genders, colors, and backgrounds.

How much of my donation goes to Grow Cycling initiatives?

We aren’t taking salaries or any wages to do this. Currently, everyone working at Grow Cycling Foundation is a volunteer. Aside from platform hosting fees and administrative costs, 100% of your donations go directly to Grow Cycling initiatives and are tax-deductible.

Our dream is that Grow Cycling grows large enough to have global reach which may, in the future, require full-time, salaried staff. If this happens we commit to being fully transparent with our donors and community about where their donations are going.

If I can’t donate, how can I help?

• Spread the word to your cycling friends and communities - tweet, repost, share or pin
• Tell your employer about us and ask them to share the story and get involved
• Commit to spending time educating yourself on inequalities of access to your sport or industry
• Show empathy daily and be intentional about inviting new people into your cycling circles
• Be empowered to speak up when you notice homogeneity in your companies or social circles. Ask why that might be and how you can open the doors to different groups of people

A note on the comments section

Pinkbike's new community guidelines aren't quite ready for prime time. So in in the meantime this is the tl;dr: don’t be racist, sexist, homophobic, or otherwise bigoted. Don’t deadname or misgender trans people. Don’t mischaracterize or discuss in bad faith. Do be constructive and welcoming. Do try to see things from others’ perspective.

We value freedom of speech in society, and we will always remain a place that encourages unvarnished, critical discussion, but Pinkbike is not a government and we will moderate this community as necessary.

 Do I have to provide proof of dental license at entry? All jokes aside this is a really great cause and its amazing to see companies stepping up to help!

 Degree and license are included in the grand prize package. This is more a career opportunity than a bike raffle. Either way it’s for a great cause!

 I know, I am upset I have to knock off the comments for a while. I can't feel angry at a company that donates.

 Glad i read the rules, I'm excluded being a resident of New York.

Glad I read the rules. I'm officially excluded from winning being a New York resident. Seriously, WTF?

 Oof good spot. I updated the note so others don't make that mistake. Not sure why NY precludes people from taking part, but I'm sure it involves lawyers.

 @phobospwns @Staktup @lifeofloon @brianpark Hey guys! Sorry, I am just seeing this. We are doing our best and there is an insane amount of rules/laws around sweepstakes.

We didn't include New York because there is a fee to hold one there, an application process that can take up to 30 days, and a bonding requirement that is equal to the value of the prize.

Right now we don't have the funds to cover an $11k bond. In the future when we have more resources, this will be more feasible, but we are just getting started and we have to take one step at a time Smile

 WHO’S ELIGIBLE: The Sweepstakes is open only to legal residents of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia, excluding New York, who are 18 (except 19 in Alabama and Nebraska and 21 in Mississippi) years of age as of the date of entry or of legal age of majority or older in their country of residence. Sweepstakes is void any place where offering the sweepstakes or the awarding of a prize is prohibited. All international, federal, state and local laws, rules and regulations apply. Void where prohibited by law.

 I'm sure there are several being planned, it will only take 10 years to build and come in 5 million over the original cost.
