The Colorado Mountain Bike Association (COMBA) has partnered with Golden, Colorado bike shop Pedal Pushers Cyclery to help fund mountain bike specific trails on the Front Range.
Pedal Pushers Cyclery has put up a size large Transition Patrol frame with a Shimano PRO cockpit and XT groupset, DVO suspension, Stans Flow wheels, Maxxis tires, a Bike Yoke Revive dropper post, and an UPLND Stoke frame wrap. The winner also gets a Fox Racing kit, and Trestle Bike Park is covering 2021 race entries. COMBA and Pedal Pushers estimate the total package is valued at more than $8,000.
“We’ve got some really exciting things in the works,” says COMBA Executive Director Gary Moore. “Currently, we’re involved in projects that include directional bike-only trails in both Idaho Springs and Black Hawk, CO. None of that comes cheap, so we’re hoping we can put a dent in our cost while hooking someone up with a really sweet ride.”
COMBA estimates these projects will cost more than $1.5M combined. Moore hopes to raise much of that with match grants and hopefully the sweepstakes will help too, which is open to anyone in the country and in Canada.
“It doesn’t matter where you live,” he says. “Everyone would love a new bike. And giving back to the trails—even if they aren’t in your backyard—always feels good. Especially when they’re in a mountain bike destination so many of us enjoy daily or are likely to visit here in Colorado.”
The sweepstakes is open until December and a winner will be picked on December 11. For the full details and information check out the official page.
