Our Annual Spring raffle is here… and we’re pretty excited about this one. 

This year’s Triple Crown Raffle offers you the chance to win 1 of 3 epic Shore tested bikes while supporting the North Shore Mountain Bike Association! Raffle tickets are available for 1 for $15 or 3 for $35 and will be on sale until June 8, 2022 at 7pm PST. The winner will be drawn on June 8, 2022 at 7:30 PST and will be contacted by email. BUY YOUR TICKETS HERE.

Even with a substantial volunteer support base, the NSMBA requires funding to fully support the growth of the organization and to properly maintain the increasing number of trails and users every year. Funds raised through the Triple Crown Raffle will be used to support ongoing trail maintenance through our volunteers and paid trail crew, the purchase of tools and equipment, our continued advocacy efforts, the hosting of community events, rebooting our Trail Academy, and insurance costs. 

Every ticket you purchase will increase your chances to win, while supporting your local trail network.

Tickets are available for BC residents only. 19+

Hitting up the trails on a brand new bike is just about the best thing ever… especially when it’s built to tackle a variety of terrain, features and styles.  From no-joke rock rolls to the infamous discombobulator and of course those flowy berms in between, no matter your ability, we want to give you the perfect setup to charge hard when exploring the North Shore trails and beyond. We’ve teamed up with our friends at Knolly Bikes, Rocky Mountain and Giant giving you the chance to win a 2022 Knolly Chilcotin, 2022 Rocky Mountain Altitude Carbon 70 and a 2022 Giant Reign Advanced Pro 29 2.  See detailed prize descriptions and specs below.

This Knolly Chilcotin 29’er is incredibly fast and will PR your favourite descents. Plenty of travel to give you confidence on steeps, jumps and drops, while still enabling you to climb up tracks for repeat sessions.

The NSMBA is a volunteer driven non-for profit organization dedicated to caring for a sustainable trail network within the community.  The North Shore Mountain Bike Association builds, maintains and advocates for many of the trails on the “North Shore”. We lead with our mission of Trails for All, Trails Forever as a framework for not only decision making, but also a way of operation, encompassing all ages, abilities, ethnicities, sexual orientations and identities.  We recognize that the land we recreate and work on is the unceded territory of the Tsleil-Waututh, Musqueam and Squamish Nations. 

As a volunteer, Not-for-Profit charity organization, our work includes the revitalization and continued maintenance of this trail network, adapting trails to sustainable trail building standards and improving connectivity through new trail projects. We work to provide challenge and progression to users while fostering our mountain bike culture and community as a positive and progressive force. As more and more users head to the trail every year, your support is needed now more than ever to ensure that we can ensure the keep up with wear and tear, trail erosion, storm damage and the ravage of time. 

The trails mean many things to many people. For many, they are simply a place to escape from the world for a bit, while many others see them as a place for fitness, fun, forest bathing and much much more. But the core of what trails are is community for without community, the trails would not exist. 

As long as there is community, there will always be trails. 

Trails for all. Trails Forever.

A massive thank you to Knolly Bikes, Rocky Mountain Bikes and Giant Bikes for partnering with us to make this raffle a reality. 

Shoutout to the amazing riders Daniel Shaw, ALN and Lief Rodgers for their participation with our raffle campaign shoot and promotional materials (and crushing the discombobulator…)

And of course thank you to the production team: Steve and Meg (Images and Video) as well as, Colin Brumelle and his team at Chopshop (video editing).
