Trail Care - Ride and Donate!
Support the Trails you Ride by Riding them! It's that easy!
SDMBA is excited to partner with Trail Care to raise funds for our local trail projects. All you have to do is follow the directions below and RIDE!
Trail Care makes it super easy for Strava users to support the trails they ride by enabling fast, easy and fun micro donations.
Each time you upload an activity to Strava, Trail Care will process it and check if it matches the jurisdiction of any participating organizations. If it does, we'll send you an email asking if you'd like to complete your donation.
You choose the amount to donate based on your cents/mile setting. You can change it anytime, or opt out of donation emails altogether. It's up to you.
Trail Care will never make donations on your behalf without your explicit permission, so there's no commitment when you sign up. You can even use Trail Care without a credit card: we'll still tell you how many miles you've ridden on maintained trails.
The idea is to make the act of charitable giving more closely tied to the ride itself. Basically, if you're stoked from a great ride on some amazing trails why not throw the people responsible for maintaining them a few bucks right then and there?
