Fundraise for Trails and a Chance to Win a Specialized Levo

Access 4 Bikes presents the Easy Steezy fundraiser for improved trail access in Marin County.

Fundraise for Trails and a Chance to Win a Specialized Levo

The Easy Steezy campaign is raising money to build mountain bike trails in Marin County and support California mountain bike advocacy. 

For every $5 you contribute, 75% goes into the Marin Trail Fund, established by Access4Bikes (A4B) to fund trail building projects like Easy Grade Trail on Mount Tam. The iconic Easy Grade trail was originally built by the CA Conservation Corp’s in 1935 to access Mount Tamalpais, perhaps the most iconic peak in the entire Bay Area and the birth place of mountain biking. This trail is prohibited to bikes, forcing bikers to navigate the highly trafficked and shoulder-less Pantol Highway.

State Parks have approved the change in use of the trail to allow bikes, and has approached the bike community to help fund raise to contribute to the over $400,000 in expected costs. Closing the funding gap will allow State Parks to proceed with permits and construction, connecting yet another piece of our access puzzle in Marin and taking us one step closer to a more connected network.

The remaining 25% raised by the Easy Steezy campaign will be directly donated to underwrite the recently formed California Mountain Biking Coalition (CAMTB) to support mountain bike advocacy for the state of California.
