Moots launches fundraiser for trail maintenance endowment fund

Moots recently launched its fifth Ti Stick (cylindrical titanium “cowbell”) fundraiser, this time benefitting the Trail Maintenance Endowment Fund. Previous beneficiaries include IMBA, Bicycle Colorado, Colorado Flood Relief and cycling industry legend Charlie Cunnigham.

The local bike company has made 50 Ti Sticks, which will be sold for $125 each, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to the Trail Maintenance Endowment Fund to help maintain biking, hiking and equestrian trails.

“We’re super proud to bring this fundraiser to the local level,” said Moots Marketing Director Jon Cariveau. “Locals and visitors of the Yampa Valley benefit from our large network of trails, and the endowment fund assures they will be maintained for years to come. The Moots Ti Sticks have become a collectable over the last four editions, raising thousands of dollars for numerous organizations, and we feel the TMEF is a deserving recipient.”
