Colorado-based titanium frame company Moots and its Portland-based dealer partner, CyclePath, recently teamed up to raise $19,525 and awareness for two Northwest cycling advocacy organizations: Bicycle Transportation Alliance (BTA) and Northwest Trail Alliance (NWTA).
The proceeds were raised through a raffle in which the grand prize was a fully built Moots Psychlo X cyclocross bike valued at approximately $7,000. Moots donated the frame, seat post, stem and fork, and CyclePath the remaining components and bike build. Chris King and Shimano also contributed to the build kit.
The winner was Portland resident, Scooter Sutterer. The drawing and celebration party was held August 1 atop the Ecotrust Building in Portland’s Pearl District, with beer served by Hopworks Urban Brewery, who donated their product and the monies collected from sales to BTA and NWTA.
Since 1990 the BTA has been instrumental in helping to lead Portland’s bike-friendly culture forward by working in close partnership with citizens, businesses, community groups, government agencies, and elected officials to create communities where people can meet their daily transportation needs on a bike.
The NWTA’s mission is to create, enhance, and protect mountain bike riding opportunities; to advocate for trail access; to promote responsible mountain biking; and to build, maintain, and ride sustainable trails.Tweet Print
