Winner of Epic Rides raffle wins a Norco, Ibis or Salsa bike; proceeds benefit trail building initiatives in Nevada, Arizona and Colorado
Epic Rides will draw a raffle winner on Monday June 26, 2017 for their Hail the Trail fundraiser that benefits three non-profit trail building organizations. The deadline for purchasing tickets is Sunday June 25 at midnight. Purchase as many raffle tickets as you want for a chance to win one of three top-of-the-line mountain bikes. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to three trail building organizations crucial to the Epic Rides Off-Road Series: Prescott Mountain Bike Alliance (PMBA) in Prescott, AZ; Colorado Plateau Mountain Bike Association (COPMOBA) in Grand Junction, CO; and Muscle Powered in Carson City, NV. Each organization is currently working on important local trail building initiatives, and this raffle will help fund work crews to maintain existing trail while also building new trail in each Off-Road Series host community.
Raffle tickets are $4.00 each, and proceeds will be split evenly between the three organizations. Three winners will be chosen at random and will receive either a Norco Optic C7.1, any Ibis Bike including the brand new Ripley LS, or a Salsa Deadwood 29+. The bikes will be fully equipped with components including SRAM Eagle drivetrain, SRAM Guide brakes, RockShox front and rear suspension, Stan’s NoTubes wheels and Maxxis Tires. These three complete bikes boast a retail value of more than $6,000 each – a very handsome reward for supporting three much-deserving organizations.
“Hail the Trail is a terrific way to raise funds for trails while rewarding three supporters with three incredibly nice bikes,” says Todd Sadow, co-founder and president of Epic Rides. “Our friends at the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship have proven this fundraising model with their 5 Bucks a Foot campaign, so we’ve put our own little twist on it with substantial support from event sponsors to help support three non-profit organizations that are critical to the success of the Off-Road Series.”
Raffle tickets can be purchased here.
