For 2024, the Builders for Builders Fundraiser is back to benefit the Sierra Butte Trail Stewardship (SBTS). So far the Builders for Builders program has raised over $100,000 to date. The proceeds from the fundraising campaign go back to the Stewardship to support more trails in the Lost Sierra.

Between now and July 2nd, for every donation made of at least $10, there is a chance to win a custom frame handcrafted by one of the following frame builders.

The winner will select the fabricator of their choice for the frame, choosing from the list above. That frame will then get custom painted. After which it will then get built with high-end componentry from Paul Components, White Industries, and WTB.

Connected Communities

“The funds will specifically support Connected Communities, SBTS’ plan to connect 15 mountain towns via a 564-mile multi-use singletrack trail. Once completed, these sections of singletrack can be linked with a vast network of existing paved and gravel doubletrack to create a plethora of gravel-bike-friendly bikepacking routes in the Lost Sierra, that dip in and out of local towns for resupply, restaurant, and lodging options.

We recently released the 68-page Trails Master Plan for the project, which outlines the proposed trail, dubbed The Lost Sierra Route, as well as plans to incorporate building techniques to create Fire Hardened Trails to manage vegetation for wildfire mitigation. Connected Communities trail projects are already in the works, but completing the entire project will require a heavy financial lift.

Dollars raised through fundraisers such as Builders for Builders are vital, as they bring in unrestricted funds or funds that don’t require a costly match or significant staff resources to manage, as is customary with government grants”.

More trails, or more trials? To clarify, I copied and pasted the article title:

Ha, yes, should be trails. But trials are cool too.

The Mosaic Cycles paint job looks fantastic, a little too much though when they added the same design to the seat post and the stem, some might like it better that way, but at least those two items can be swapped out if someone didn’t like it, so not a huge deal.
