100% of ticket sales (minus transactional fees) from our September raffle will be donated to Radical Adventure Riders’ SJ Brooks Scholarship and supporting activities. This scholarship seeks to “increase access, reduce barriers, and center voices specifically for BIPOC cyclists who identify as femme, trans, woman, non-binary, intersex, two-spirit, or genderqueer”. Radical Adventure Riders (RAR) are a positive voice working to enrich and diversify bikepacking through many efforts such as this scholarship fund, spearheading the Cycling Industry Pledge, and Guiding Principles.
Rockgeist is holding raffles to help provide financial support to organizations that uplift, encourage, and support the introduction of our sport to underrepresented and marginalized groups; Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC), women, and LGBTQ. Lowering the barriers to entry and growing our sport is an important part of why we are in business. We love what we do, we love our sport, and we love attempting to share these experiences with as many people as possible.
We are asking for your help in this effort by entering our bikepacking gear raffles. 100% of ticket sales (minus 3% transactional fees) will be donated to the selected organization and directed to their efforts to diversify our sport and to enrich our bikepacking community.
*The raffle is open to all but only shipping to Europe, Oceania, Canada, and USA.*
