Builders For Builders: Dream Bike Raffle Benefiting Sierra Trails

Last year, the Builders for Builders raffle was launched to benefit the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship. The campaign raised over $40,000 and one lucky cyclist won a sick bike of their picking. Sierra Buttes organizes races (Downieville Classic and Grinduro) and does a ton of work maintaining and expanding trails for mountain biking, hiking and horseback use in Northern California.


The Builders for Builders raffle is back for 2019 and one lucky winner will walk away with bike of their choosing from Mosaic, Argonaut, McGovern, Sklar or Stinner. Here’s the press release:

Bikes are at the heart of what we do at ECHOS Communications, and we’re pleased to be able to give back to the cycling community whenever we can. For the second year in a row, ECHOS is shepherding the Builders for Builders raffle, benefitting the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship and funding the amazing work they do. Last year we raised more than $40k for the SBTS. Their work is instrumental in expanding recreational opportunities in Northern California, bringing economic growth to their region through trail construction and maintenance, event promotion, and working with their communities to promote the region as an outdoor destination.

With Builders for Builders, ECHOS brings together five top US bicycle builders to raffle off a custom handmade “dream bike.” The winner will choose their builder, with all the builders joining to support each other in delivering a truly unique bike. The raffle will take place on June 7, following the SBTS’s “Lost and Found” gravel race in Portola CA, where all five builders will be racing the bikes they built for the event, each of which is painted in the colors of the Sierra Buttes.

Tickets are on sale now at, and at $10 a ticket it’s an easy way to support a nonprofit making a difference for Northern California, while earning entrants the cheapest chance they’ll ever have to win their dream bike fabricated in the US from carbon fiber, steel or titanium, equipped with components from  White Industries  and  ENVE Composites.
