About Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship
Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship is a non-profit organization that builds and maintains multi-use trails in the Sierra Buttes, Tahoe, Plumas and Lassen national forests. Their mission is building sustainable recreation-based communities through stewardship, job creation and hosting world-class events. SBTS has donated an estimated 72,000 hours of volunteer labor, maintained over 800 miles of shared use trails and created nearly 80 miles of new trails since 2003.
“While these are showroom worthy bicycles, they truly shine when they are being ridden,” said Billy Sinkford of media relations partner ECHOS Communications. “These builders all came together wanting to support local trail builders who are stewards of the land and the local community. The work being done by SBTS exemplifies the time, dedication and craftsmanship that is on display.”
Hosted in the wide-open and high North Eastern Sierra Nevada Mountains, the Lost and Found Gravel Grinder and Bike Ride is a grand adventure featuring the perfect blend of pavement, dirt road, gravel road and historic railroad grade. The four bikes were exhibited at the Lost and Found gravel race and the raffle will be live from June 2nd through June 15th, hosted by The Pro’s Closet. All donations and raffle ticket purchases are tax deductible.
