Common Ground // Ep. 3 Trans-Cascadia, More Than a Race
While racing serves as a great excuse for mountain bikers to rally together, it is only one part of the Trans-Cascadia experience. Riding bikes in good company produces the exact feelings that draw so many people into the sport to begin with, and four days of nothing but provides the perfect reminder. By the end of the weekend, times are irrelevant in comparison to the shared moments that everyone leaves with—for those can’t be quantified by a number.
The primary goal of Trans-Cascadia is to share the incredibly unique trail systems of the Pacific Northwest Cascade mountain range with the world—as well as give back to the local community through trail work, project funding, and support of the local economy. To help with this cause, they've created Ten For Trails, where each $10 donation increases your chance of winning a Santa Cruz Megatower and all proceeds from the drawing will benefit the continued trail advocacy efforts of Trans-Cascadia.
