This one is pretty straightforward. Donate a dollar. Get one chance at a killer new carbon trail bike.
World Bicycle Relief is a great organization out there getting more people on bikes in the developing world to improve the mobility that brings with it access to better services, goods, and the opportunity to expand their horizons. WBR has long been supported by the sport cycling industry, and it is promotions like this one that help fund their work. Every year Tasco organizes a Bike for a Buck promotion where they raffle off a sweet new bike with all proceeds going to a deserving charity. This year that bike is the new 140mm travel 29er carbon Jeffsy CF trail bike from YT Industries, and all the money raised goes to World Bicycle Relief. Check the bike out and how to enter after the jump…
The bike is a 2017 YT Jeffsy CF Comp One, spec’d out with a SRAM X1 1x drivetrain, Rockshox Pike RCT3 fork, Monarch RT3 shock & DT Swiss M1700 Spline wheels. It gets a super slack geometry on those big wagon wheels to make for a bike that kills it on the downhills, yet is efficient enough for all day riding.
Besides the sweet bike, Tasco has also pulled in CamelBak, SRAM & BikeMag to offer some lesser prizes to those who support the campaign. Raffle entries are just $1, with no limit as to the number of times each person can enter to win. You can also automatically be entered for every $10 you spend on the off-the-bike clothing and socks you buy from Tasco directly, as they’ll throw a buck into the donations pot for you.
World Bicycle Relief builds and distributes specifically-designed, locally assembled, rugged bicycles. With the experience and expertise gained over the last ten years designing and delivering more than 300,000 Buffalo Bicycles, World Bicycle Relief has developed an efficient innovating and scalable model to successfully address the great need for reliable, affordable transportation in rural areas of developing countries.
The fundraising campaign & contest runs until 12:00am PST on March 5, 2017. Head on over to Tasco’s website to donate.
