$5 Bucks a Foot Fundraiser

Congratulations Matt Scheetz of NW Massillon, Ohio! You’ve just won a one-of-a-kind 2019 custom Santa Cruz Bronson!
Thank you to everyone who contributed to $5 a Foot! With supporting trails we all win!
Special thank you to Santa Cruz for making this possible with the rad customized Tower to Town 2019 Bronson!

Let’s build some trails!

Hey there good people. Thanks to your support of $5-Bucks-a-Foot, good things are happening in the Lost Sierra. Good things like #dirtmagic in the form of new trails, existing trail enhancements and creating new jobs in an economically struggling corner of California.

If you’re not already familiar with $5-Bucks-a-Foot, it’s our annual fundraiser where people buy feet of trail ($5 = 1 foot) to enter themselves for a chance at winning a beautiful new Santa Cruz mountain bike. Over the years, $5-Bucks-a-Foot has raised more than $300,000 in funds that have built amazing new Lost Sierra trails like Mills Peak.

Help keep the #dirtmagic going; purchase as many feet as you can and good luck!

This year’s $5-Bucks-a-Foot, celebrates the new Tower to Town (T2T) route; 7,000 vertical feet of descending from the top of the Sierra Buttes Overlook at 8,600 feet elevation to Downieville at 2,800 feet elevation (there’s a little climbing involved for all you mathletes). Thanks to your support, last year’s Pacific Crest Trail realignment – partially funded with $5-Bucks-a-Foot proceeds – opened up legal mountain bike access to the Sierra Buttes Overlook trail, enabling Tower 2 Town.

This year’s winner will receive a custom Santa Cruz Bronson, built specifically for running T2T.  What makes the Bronson so supernatural is an upgraded lower link-driven suspension that handles terrain like a trophy truck. Bigger brakes, slacker head angle, longer, lower and allowing tires up to 2.8, it’s the perfect Lost Sierra adventure bike.

Contest runs from Friday July 20 to Monday August 20 with the winner being announced on Tuesday August 21.

May the odds be ever in your favor.
