Thank you for your support. Builders for Builders raised $20,095

Thank You! And Congratulations to Nick Chang!

Sending a MASSIVE thank to nearly 700 (!) of you who donated in this year’s Builders For Builders Fundraiser! Together, we brought in more than $20,000 for trails in the Lost Sierra.

Special nod to all the builders, and especially Caletti CyclesSyCip BicyclesMosaic Cycles  and NeuHaus Metal Works, one of whom will fabricate a custom gravel frame for the winner. We’re so grateful for all the support and to be able to continue making Dirt Magic!

Nick donated to support SBTS’ Connected Communities project, which he hopes can be an example for other communities developing trails with an eye toward economic revitalization.
