Building trails require funds and one way for trail organizations to raise money is by raffling off a brand new bike. The Oregon Timber Trail is working with Giant/Liv so that one lucky winner will walk away with a new Giant Trance Advanced 29 2 or Liv Intrigue Advanced 2 carbon mountain bike in your size, plus a full set of Giant bikepacking bags and a guided trip with Cog Wild. This explorer’s prize package contains $3,000 worth of prizes and all the proceeds from this giveaway go to support the work required along the Oregon Timber Trail.

Giveaways and contests like this are like turning this plane – the website – into a mirror. It opens the viscera to expose how people ride and recreate. All with a simple click! It shows and shares their passions and their communities. That’s the easy part. The hard part is picking winners! After lots of back and forth with a few judges, the two posts that everyone agreed on were these two photos!
Kawika‘s caption didn’t hurt either! “Fuck these half ass tied, fake food flys… but hey, selfie time, get my good side!” ~ Mr. Peacock Bass
Jose‘s group shot on a bikepacking trip around Real de Catorce showcases his community and the caption is so good!
We’ll be sending off a Leatherman Free to each winner.
“Where would you take your Leatherman FREE?”
Leatherman’s tools – particularly the Wave – have been staples for us on our travels. From bikepacking or touring, camping, fishing or 4×4 expeditions, we won’t go anywhere without our Leatherman. So when Leatherman added a new product to their lineup, the FREE, we had to try it out. Guess what? We liked it so much that we want to give a few away to the readers of this website. Check out the details below.
We love hosting giveaways as much as you love winning free stuff! This time, we’re working with Portland Design Works to hook up your winter commute. There are two prizes, one valued at over $2,500 and the other over $600. All you’ve gotta do is sign up with your email address. Head to Portland Design Works to enter and good luck!
After very little deliberation, the crew at District Bicycles chose Jay’s comment as the winner of our Land Run 100 giveaway. There were tons of comments to choose from but something about Jay’s comment really resonated with the team.
“One of the reasons why I want to attempt the Land Run 100 is because it scares the hell out me, but in a good way. For me, it’s like that horror movie thing when you’re a kid — you don’t want to watch, but you can’t stop. I’m the same way with Land Run. I don’t know if I can do it, I might not finish, but I can’t get it out of my head that I have to at least try. Another reason? The good vibes associated with Land Run and District Bicycles. You’ve got a great thing going on down there and I hope to be a part of it in March. Cheers, folks.”
We’re stoked to be a part of this and we’ll be sending Jay a package to make sure he’s kitted out for the weekend events. If you have some free time, head over to the post and read through the comments. They’re really great! If you commented, thank you! If you’re going to Land Run this year, make sure to give Jay some words of encouragement as he takes on 100 miles of Oklahoma dirt.
