Like what we’re doing in our little corner of the mountain bike world? Want to be part of the community we’re building? Check out the opportunities below for you or your organization to join the SDR family!

Individual Rider/Grassroots Crew

Love riding, digging and just generally living and breathing bikes? Us too! Our Grassroots Crew is all about building community through riding bikes in the woods. We really DO NOT care if you’re the fastest rider (or race at all) or send the biggest lines or pull the sickest tricks. None of that is really important to us, your attitude and commitment to making the bike scene and the world a better place are.

What you get from us:

  • An exclusive SDR Grassroots Crew trucker cap & t-shirt
  • 30% off all non-clearance retail items for the year in which your sponsorship is active
  • Promotion of you, your posts and other content on SDR social media
  • Possible larger individual sponsorships down the road. Any larger sponsorships are done on a one-off basis based on ongoing relationships, but this is how they start.

What we expect from you:

  • You’ll follow the Radical Adventure Riders Guiding Principles MAKE SURE YOU READ THIS
  • You’re generally stoked on riding and building community in the bike world
  • You’ll wear your SDR gear and talk up the brand when you’re out riding and doing bike stuff
  • You have a public Instagram account we can follow and repost
  • You’ll post content at least every couple of weeks in your gear w/SDR’s account tagged

 

The applications are now closed for 2021! If you applied, thank you so much for reaching out. You will ALL be hearing from us (me) in the next couple of weeks.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are there any documents to review? contracts, 1099s, etc?

Nope, this isn’t a legal agreement. I’m an anarchist after all…

Is it ok if I have other sponsors?

Sure, as long as they are cool with you repping SDR and you live up to the above expectations.

What if I or my organization don’t live up to the expectations above?

I’ll reach out and see if it’s something I can help with. If you’re just being a jerk though, I’ll pull the sponsorship.

Who decides if I get a sponsorship and what organizations qualify for what?

I do. Don’t let my liberal use of the “royal we” fool you. SDR is a one man show, and all decisions are at my sole discretion.

Could we do a larger sponsorship?

Feel free to reach out with what you have in mind, but I’m just one person with limited resources. So I can’t promise anything.

Can the retail discount be used on sale items?

Regular sales? Probably, unless it’s a huge sale and stacking would put the price too far below my cost. Clearance items? No. Those are already priced at or below my cost, sorry.

Can I order for friends and family?

As long as you don’t abuse it. I track everyone’s discount code and I’m not made of money.  Abusing your discount is a good way to get your sponsorship pulled.
