A Sequoia Raffle to Benefit WTF Bikexplorers, Bikepacking Roots’ BIPOC Grant, and Antonio Chavez’s BIPOC Program

Whatever you do in this life, do it with fucking passion and power.

Make sure the world knows it – Edward B. Gieda III

I’ve been so inspired by the voices, initiatives and attitudes from our bicycle community in the last year in general and especially in the last couple of weeks of unrest and calibration of who we are and what we’re doing to each other. The calling out of toxic elements and the demand for change has a snowballing effect that is nothing but refreshing. I believe in the bicycle as a tool for change and grassroots movements like the Cycling Industry Pledge by WTF Bikexplorers is just one powerful example of how to drive change and hold us all accountable for our actions, or the lack thereof. For some, the bicycle will always just be a toy or a piece of sporting equipment but for many others, it’s a tool that enables change, growth and freedom.

Win This Custom-Painted Squid SO-EZ Tracklocross Frameset

He painted. He drew. Then he painted again. The end result is this one-of-a-kind SO-EZ tracklocross frameset painted by LA artist @cachicken at @itsnotabikeshop.

But what to do with it? Socially minded, intimately connected to the streets of LA through his craft, Cache suggested we find a way to use this frame to raise money for the local LA food bank where he volunteers.

So here’s how to win this frame:
-Donate what you can to the LA Food Bank ($25 = 100 meals, so even $5 helps)
-DM Squid Bikes on Instagram a screenshot of your receipt.
-We understand that times are tight, if you aren’t able to donate, please just DM us a selfie of your smiling face.

On May 1 we’ll collect all the screenshots/selfies and someone* will have a beautiful new one-of-a-kind Cache painted SO-EZ!

*frameset size 54 (it will look great hanging on a wall if it’s not your size) one entry per person, shipping within the lower 48 States – see Squid for details.
