Trails are expensive. So are bikes. Santa Cruz is partnering with the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship to optimize accessibility for more trails with one nice bike. With the ‘5 Bucks a Foot’ fundraiser, readers who are interested in donating $5 will benefit the Master Plan for Connected Communities and they’ll be entered to win this one-of-a-kind Hightower.
The Master Plan will create a vision for a recreation-based community, shared stewardship, economic opportunity, and new jobs which benefit economically disadvantaged communities in the the Plumas, Sierra, Butte, and Lassen counties in California’s mountains.
The competition is open worldwide, so if you’re in a different country and want to chip in, BikeFlights will ship the bike to you if you win. Contributors also have the option to pick up the bike in person at The Lure Resort in Downieville, as a weekend stay is included. SBTS will coordinate arrangements.
The 5 Bucks a Foot program helps construct non-motorized trails, and funds like these have helped build the Mills Peak Trail in Graeagle, the Cal-Ida trail, and will help ongoing maintenance in Quincy and Downieville, as well as future projects.
