LAKEWOOD, CO (November 18, 2020) – Colorado Mountain Bike Association (COMBA) announces it has teamed up with Golden, CO, bike shop Pedal Pushers Cyclery to launch a sweepstakes giving riders a chance to win a Transition Patrol with a custom build and a slew of extras worth more than $8,000 to help fund the building of new mountain bike-specific trails on Colorado’s Front Range.
The complete prize package includes a large 2020 Transition Patrol generously donated by Pedal Pushers Cyclery equipped with a custom build sourced by Pedal Pushers from industry partners. The build includes Shimano PRO cockpit, XT 12-speed drivetrain, four-piston XT brakes, DVO Diamond fork and Jade coil shock. The bike also comes pre-wrapped with a custom UPLND Stoke frame wrap kit. Fox Racing is including a complete gear kit. Trestle Bike Park will be covering entry fees to all 2021 races and providing a custom logo helmet. Over Yonder Brewing Company is contributing a $75 gift card to cover post-ride refreshment.

“We’ve got some really exciting things in the works,” says COMBA Executive Director Gary Moore. “Currently, we’re involved in projects that include directional bike-only trails in both Idaho Springs and Black Hawk, CO. None of that comes cheap, so we’re hoping we can put a dent in our cost while hooking someone up with a really sweet ride.”
Together, the projects will cost more than $1.5M. Moore hopes to raise a good chunk of that for grant matches in support of the Front Range trails, while opening up the sweepstakes to riders nationwide..
“It doesn’t matter where you live,” he says. “Everyone would love a new bike. And giving back to the trails—even if they aren’t in your backyard—always feels good. Especially when they’re in a mountain bike destination so many of us enjoy daily or are likely to visit here in Colorado.”
The sweepstakes is open to residents of the United States and Canada (excluding New York) from now until December 7, 2020. A winner will be selected on December 11. There are multiple ways to enter, and while the goal of the sweepstakes to raise capital for trail building projects, a donation or purchase is not required.

COMBA—the advocacy group responsible for most trail areas in proximity to the Denver metro area—has made significant progress recently including the first purpose-built bike-only downhill trail on Colorado’s Front Range. COMBA opened The Sluice at Floyd Hill in August of 2019, just 30 minutes from downtown Denver.
