    Enter to Win a Santa Cruz Solo and help the future of mountain biking in VT

    Vermont Mountain Bike Association (VMBA) is raffling off a size med Santa Cruz Solo frame and a full XX1 group set, reverb dropper post and SRAM brakes to ensure the sustainable future of mountain biking in Vermont.

    We'd sure appreciate it if you help us help VMBA. 100% of the money goes towards VMBA's mission. Nobody makes any money on this raffle. You do a good thing, and who knows, maybe you'll get lucky. Even if you don't get lucky, throwing $10 or $25 VMBA's way will help more than you can imagine (imagine more trails).

    A big shout out to Santa Cruz and SRAM for donating the parts! Thanks guys!

    More Trails. Better Trails. Help us make it happen.

    So, do you need to be at a VMBA event to win the raffle? or would they ship it to the winner if need be (I'd pay the shipping)

    *yes, you are automatically entered.

    Update: We have Bicycle Express and iRide on for sponsorship which means this is going to be one sweet build (iRide will build the bike for the winner and Bicycle Express is donating more parts)! Thank you to our local shops for helping!

    Spread the word!

    Great cause....I'm in.

    My kid will be a froshie at UVM this fall. Looks like I'll be hitting some trails in VT for the near future. Certainly would be even more fun on my new Solo.

    Entered - who wants to buy the medium I win? I also used a coupon last weekend from my VMBA membership to go canoeing at a state park. Lots of goodies in there, free day trail passes, discounts, etc.

    Thanks Loafberg! You should come over and ride the Leaf Blower Fall Classic in Stowe, VT on Oct 12th. The highlight of the event will be an epic ride led on some of Stowe’s most exciting and scenic trails. We're going to draw the winner of the Solo at the event (you don't need to be present to win).

    IMO you guy should value the bike at 0 dollars so that the USA governemnt gets not a cent of money from winning the bike.

    Ha, ditto! Seriously, who won SMBC? I couldn't do the Leaf Blower but bought a few raffle tickets as my way to give back to SMBC for an amazing season of riding their trails. I may have ridden them more than my club's FOTW trails. Not to compare the two, but I hope FOTW can keep the Maiden-style work going on more of HTF. Things are so freaking good right now, makes me want to live in a van down by the trailhead.

    I don't know who won either, but my understanding is that this raffle is VMBA not SMBC.
