Out of the Ashes is BACK! You can support @santacruztrails as they raise funds to help repair charred California State Parks trails. For just a $5 contribution, you could win your choice of bike from Caletti (outfitted with components from Fox / Easton Cycling / Race Face) or a hand-crafted walnut coffee table from @joeykochlacs_furnituremaker.
The trails throughout parks like Big Basin, Butano, and Fall Creek State Parks are a constant source of exercise and inspiration for me. It’s been nearly a year since the CZU wildfires, and there’s still a tremendous amount of work needed to restore these areas back to their former glory.
Head over to Santa Cruz Trails to get your entries! This giveaway is only live through August 9.

“Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship’s 5 Bucks a Foot fundraiser is back with a customized, Santa Cruz Hightower up for grabs! Sure, there’s a bike shortage, and yes, it’s nearly impossible just to get some bike parts these days. Yet, we got lucky enough to assemble this bling’ed masterpiece: a one-of-a-kind Hightower (size Large) decked out with parts you can’t even get your hands on these days. And if you want to come pick it up in-person*, you can receive complimentary lodging at The Lure Resort in Downieville, CA for the weekend. Come out and ride the Downieville Downhill on your brand-new bike!
We are building a legacy trail – the 300+ mile Lost Sierra Route – through our Connected Communities Project. The building and maintenance of “A Trail for Everyone” will employ local residents and help our small businesses thrive. For every $5 you donate to 5 Bucks a Foot between Tuesday, June 8 to Friday, July 9, 2021, you can directly contribute to this project and possibly win this sweet ride.”

Kitsbow’s popular “36 Hours” grant program is open for applications until this Friday, March 19th. Here’s the gist on how you can apply:
“At Kitsbow we strive to fit it all in; work, family, and fun. But when it feels like the adventure is something others do, it’s time to hit pause and get after the journey. Escape and adventure are just outside our door. The key is to go. Busyness can trap us and keep us from necessary escape.
But, 36 Hours…now, that’s doable!
Kitsbow is accepting 36 Hours in Kitsbow Grant Applications until Friday, March 19 at 5:00 p.m. ET.
Want to learn more of the nitty-gritty details about the 36 Hours in Kitsbow Grant Program? Then, be sure to review the 36 Hours in Kitsbow Grant Program & Application Guidance Information
We invite you to apply and share your unique proposal by submitting your application here: 2021 36 Hours in Kitsbow Grant Application & Proposal

Our friends at Paul Component are looking to help out the team at Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship through a wicked giveaway! Check out the press release below…
When we saw the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship announcement that all events for 2021 were canceled due to Covid, we were crushed. Anybody who’s been to the Downieville Classic, Mountains to Meadows, or Lost and Found knows we LOVE supporting these events with our aid stations, and partying with some of the best bike weirdos in the world, in one of the most beautiful areas in the world.
SBTS rely heavily on these events to help raise funds and awareness for all the amazing trails they build in the Lost Sierra, involving, employing, and assisting the local small communities in the process. It’s truly inspiring to behold the hard and meaningful work they put in, and a cause we will trumpet until we’re out of breath.
What can we do to help? Well, we’ve decided to offer up one of our few remaining Limited 30th Anniversary Box Sets as a prize to one lucky person, chosen at random, who donates to SBTS by March 14.
Consider donating the amount you would normally spend for entry fees and this will help keep the trails and community in good shape for 2022 when we’re all back out there shredding and partying together!
So how do you win?
-Head over to the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship website and donate any amount you can afford.
-Forward the confirmation email you receive from SBTS to firstname.lastname@example.org. That’s it! Paul will choose a winner at random after March 14th in some bizarre way, so stay tuned!

Our friends at Abbey Bike Tools have their head in the right place with this giveaway:
“When the Grow Cycling Foundation started in the Summer of 2020 it was something that caught the eye of us here at Abbey. Grow’s goals weren’t small, and they would definitely need some help to accomplish their first big one, building a pump track in Los Angeles with the goal of bringing a more diverse group of people into cycling. So, we hit them up to see how we could help. Pump tracks do not come cheap, especially when you want to build them in a metro area like Los Angeles.
We have donated one of our Team Issue Toolboxes for a sweepstakes that is happening through the
month of February. Our goal is to raise a modest $10,000 dollars, 100% of which will go to Grow Cycling Foundation. The recipient will not only get one of the most sought after items in our range, but also an hour with the Abbey Ambassador Team featuring World Cup mechanics John Hall from Intense Factory Racing, Brad Copeland from Scott-SRAM, Verg from Scott USA and Jason from Abbey. There are decades of peak race and event service between this group and the tech advice that can come from this session is hard-earned and priceless.”
Enter here* to win the following:
-1 Team Issue Toolbox
-1 Hour with Abbey Ambassador Team (aka the best in the mechanic business)
*The sweepstakes is open to the US and Canada with the exception of New York and Quebec.
