Santa Cruz Mountains Trail Stewardship and Santa Cruz Bicycles have once again teamed up to raise funds for local trail stewardship.

Donate to Win a Santa Cruz Bronson and Support New Trail Development

Santa Cruz, California (October 25, 2021) – Santa Cruz Mountains Trail Stewardship (SCMTS), a 501(c)(3) trail stewardship organization, today launched its “Support Trails and Win a Santa Cruz” giveaway. In partnership with Santa Cruz Bicycles, SCMTS will give away one Bronson X01 AXS RSV mountain bike worth $9,849 USD to raise funds for local trail stewardship and maintenance throughout the Santa Cruz Mountains region. Santa Cruz Bicycles’ PayDirt fund will match the first $20,000 contributed to the campaign, doubling the impact of early supporters. Tickets start at just $5 each, and the giveaway closes on Friday, November 12, at 11:59 p.m. PST. If you would like to donate, you can enter to win here.

Santa Cruz Bicycles is a longtime supporter of SCMTS, and together, the organizations have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for trail development and maintenance. Most notably, Santa Cruz’s last giveaway with SCMTS built the popular Sawpit Trail reroute in Soquel Demonstration State Forest to bring a mile of brand-new, natural-terrain singletrack to the area. Santa Cruz Bicycles’ PayDirt fund also recently helped rebuild and reopen the Westside Pump Track in the heart of Santa Cruz’s Westside neighborhood.

“We’re big fans of the local trails that SCMTS has helped bring to life here in our hometown and are always happy to partner with their team on bike fundraisers like this one,” ”said Katie Zaffke of PayDirt. “The SCMTS crew works hard to ensure that everything they do is high quality, and we can’t wait to see the great new trails they’ll build with the money generated from this fundraiser.

SCMTS has set a $100,000 fundraising goal for this bike giveaway to get a jump start on new trail development plans at Cotoni-Coast Dairies and improve trail maintenance throughout the area’s most-used public open spaces. The group has plans to build over 19 miles of new trails throughout Cotoni-Coast Dairies National Monument in the months ahead, plus offer continued free Trail Academy trail building courses and host many more 60-person Dig Days at various parks throughout San Mateo, Santa Clara, and, of course, Santa Cruz Counties.

Win a Bronson when you support Santa Cruz Mountains Trail Stewardship by November 12!

“None of the work we do would be possible without support from loyal sponsors like Santa Cruz Bicycles,” said Matt De Young, Executive Director of Santa Cruz Mountains Trail Stewardship. “They’ve supported our organization from the very beginning, and together, we’ve brought all-new, world-class trails to the community. We’re proud to keep expanding and improving trail access with this Bronson giveaway!”

Santa Cruz Bicycles’ Bronson is a great all-around bike, and the ideal choice for a mountain biker who wants to feel just as comfortable on technical climbs as they do on challenging descents. Through this giveaway, one lucky winner will come home with a Bronson in Santa Cruz’s PayDirt Gold colorway, fully kitted with AXS remote drivetrain and carbon Reserve wheels. Click here to enter to win one today!
