Mountain Bikers of Santa Cruz is proud to have played such a key role in the development of this beautiful multi-use trail named in honor of trail advocate Emma McCrary. What an incredible accomplishment and testament to the spirit of community cooperation in Santa Cruz County. Please come celebrate with Mayor Hillary Bryant, trail designer and crew leader Drew Perkins, and all the volunteers and supporters of this endeavor.
We finally processed all the data and and we have a total of 8882 entries and raised a total of $44,410 for the new flow trail. There were 1,640 supporters with an average donation of $27. We added all the entries to a spreadsheet in no particular order and used random.org to pick a number between 1-8882. The number chosen was 7692.
The lucky winner of the Own the Flow Ibis bike is…. Joel Steinberg of Lodi, California. You bought a nice chunk of dirt and have been rewarded with a sweet new bike from Ibis, FOX, Easton and Shimano! Congratulations Joel!
We are really pleased that Scot mentions Ibis’s support of bike advocacy and the Sierra Butte’s campaign. He also mentions the Pogonip (Emma McCrary) trail, the flow trail in Demo and the Own the Flow raffle in particular.
The whole interview is great but fast forward to min 14:50 to see the advocacy part.
You can see the story behind the founders event and the full 2 hour interview with Scot at the Bike Magazine link.
Enjoy and remember to Own the Flow and buy a piece of this new flow trail!
