Trans-Cascadia: 2017 Opens Today
@Inertiaman: Trans-Cascadia is a non-profit corporation registered in Idaho. We're in the application process to become a Tax Exempt 501(c)(3), so nice guys like yourself can make donations that are tax exempt.

@Inertiaman: Right on. In the near future you'll be able to deduct any trail work contributions you make to Trans-Cascadia. In the mean time, you can still donate to the cause, or come out and dig. Sounds like you're in the area, Deciples of Dirt is really active in the area and we get out for 4 big build parties throughout the year as well. Thanks!

Hey Inertiaman - We are a non-profit and we are entering our 3rd year as an organization. One of the assumptions people make is 100 spots open, means 100 spots paid at full price. I can tell you this is not the case, for example, the first year 3 of the locals attended at NC. We were way stoked to have them and the race couldn't be done without them ...but just one example of the realities and nuances that is overlooked when it comes to critics view of revenue generation. This is an expensive race to put on, there is a long list of Budget items that include Portable Hot Showers, Food Costs, Transportation costs, Forest Service Fees, CC Transaction fees... the list is long and feels endless. On top of the expenses needed to run an event, we spend time and $ on trail development and rehabilitation. Our last press release mentions over 20K spent on trails and over 5K on tools to do the work. Everyone we've worked with in the local community, whether its small business owners, riders, or trail builders, can attest to our supporting local economies and how Trans-Cascadia impacts their bottom line. There's no BS here, the fact is, this is an indulgent event where all you have to do is show up, open your hand, and take a beer(S). All of the planning, trail work, course routing, meal planning, shuttle planning etc is done for you so that when you come out you can kick back, relax and celebrate. Blind Racing, not knowing what you're riding next and the people that attend make for an incredible experience, everything added creates an experience that will last you a life time. It's not for everyone, no doubt. But I assure you this is a very legitimate organization with good intentions and everyone this event crosses paths with can attest to this.

Hey Inertiaman - Valid questions, thanks for posting. If you read our press releases during the event, you'll find the information you are looking for. As you know, we offer a blind format, and we try to keep trail information on the DL... The other way to get this info is by attending the race where you receive maps and all the goodies. At the end of the day, we're hoping you'll call or visit the Willamette Valley Mercantile in Oakridge, the local bike shop, and have a chat with the locals. They've got a great shop and are a solid crew that will lead you in the right direction. Preciate it!

mrtoodles - Off the couch prep would be tough... but very much doable with some preparation! Take the time you need on the climbs, and shred down. Lots of beer and goodies waiting for you at the bottom. Hope to see you out!

Ten For Trails: Win A Custom Santa Cruz - Shimano Dream Bike
We definitly missed a few of the details. Fact: This all doesn't happen without the MTB community rallying... the winner will receive the bike without any hassles... we'll handle freight and duty in the case of a winner outside the us. No hidden agenda, only fresh bikes and funds for the trails!
