CAMBA’s Fall Fundraiser

Two Great Bikes!

Pivot Cycles

Trek Bikes

CAMBA’s fall fundraiser, the Bike-Palooza Auction is a great way to score a sweet ride and support CAMBA at the same time. We are auctioning two great bikes from our friends at Pivot Cycles and Trek – BIG thanks to these terrific sponsors. The auction is open to anyone and we hope you’ll get in on the action. Good luck!

Auction proceeds will directly support CAMBA’s trail building and maintenance efforts. With more than 130 miles of singletrack and hundreds miles of mapped gravel routes, CAMBA offers the largest trail network and some of the best mountain biking and gravel riding to be found in the upper Midwest.

Here’s how it works:

This auction uses “super-secret” bidding:

  • Every participant gets ONE (1) opportunity to bid on each bike.
  • Place your bid for the highest amount you would bid for that item.
  • There is no progressive, competitive bidding.
  • The highest bid received for each bike is the winner.

All bids must be placed by November 14 at 6:00 pm.

In case of a tie, the tied bidders will be allowed one additional bid until the tie is broken.

Winning bidders and their respective bids will be announced on November 15.

Winning bidders must pay for their item(s) within 48 hours via PayPal. You will be sent a PayPal invoice and may pay by credit card. You do not need a PayPal account.

Bikes may not be re-sold for one year.

Winning bidders will have a choice of frame size.

Winner must take delivery from a local bike shop. Due to high demand for bikes and related products, fulfillment of the winning bikes may be delayed.

A winning bid in excess of the MSRP will result in a tax deduction for the excess amount (Bid less MSRP).

Contact if you have any questions.
