The Trans-Cascadia team is back at it again, but this time there are more opportunities to win! They are giving away another fully customized Santa Cruz - Shimano XTR dream bike of your choice, a 2017 Trans-Cascadia entry
, and a custom kit to three lucky winners!- Donate here to enter! -
Byron Cleary's mother-in-law, Paola Kendrick, was the winner of the first raffle and he was lucky enough to receive the prize! "It sounded like a good joke! I did not even know she made a donation. The only thing greater than Paola's sense of humor is her kindness," he says of hearing that he would get to pick out his dream bike. He chose the Santa Cruz Hightower. "I am really stoked to have a bike with so much range. My current bikes feel really single purpose. I'm looking forward to flipping the chip and rolling some 27.5 wheels on it!"
Included in the prize was $3000 to be donated to a trail advocacy group of the winner's choice. Byron selected the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship. "Building trails in California is difficult with regards to our surplus of ill-informed politicians and environmentalists. We have a bunch of Sweco bench cut trails in state and country parks, but the guys and girls at Sierra Buttes Trails Stewardship have been out there hand cutting a network of fantastic single track year after year. And they do it in a humble, respectable, and inclusive manner."
Greg Williams, the Executive Director to the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship is looking forward to putting this donation to use, "Byron's money will be spent helping the mountain communities of Downieville and Quincy by employing our professional and locally hired Trail Crew to do what they do best - build sweet Sierra singletrack for multiple user groups!" Greg and an amazing group of caring volunteers, friends, and families are full of passion for the Lost Sierra region's trails and forested lands. "We were incredibly proud to be chosen by Byron as his favourite non-profit. I guess we are doing things right in his eyes! We look forward to making dirt magic happen on behalf of Byron's donation and also look forward to building a new trail in Lost Sierra."
As with the first contest, each $10 donation increases your chance of winning, but this time there will be three winners! All proceeds will benefit the trail advocacy efforts of the Trans-Cascadia team. Donations can be made until February 28, 2017 at midnight and the winners will be announced on March 1st, 2017!
