Neko Mulally donates custom Worlds DH bike to get more kids on bikes! – Earlier this week the custom painted YT Tues CF of American pro downhiller, Neko Mulally made it into our second gallery of custom DH bikes the World Championships. Well, he’s put his bike up for a raffle, partnered with the Can’d Aid Foundation to raise money for the Treads + Trails program, which has built more than 2,200 bicycles for underprivileged youth, restored miles of multi-use trails and works to get people outside enjoying active lifestyles.

So yeah, you can enter the raffle for just $20 a ticket with all proceeds going to putting kids on bikes. And you might just ride away with a killer bike that was raced at Worlds. And remember, YT says their sizing fits a ton of different people, so most riders are going to fit on his custom bike anyway. Enter now at: CandAid.salsalabs.org, and the bike will find its new owner on Nov 9.
