Builder needs your help

I'm raising funds to help Trevor, a long time North Shore trail builder, to continue his work on the trails.

Trevor has been building & maintaining bike trails for 20 years and has contributed thousands of hours of his time fueled only by his passion.

Unfortunately the same passion has led to burnout for the past 2.5 years. He's slowly getting back on the trails, but due to his illness he is having difficulty finding funds to continue maintaining his chainsaw and purchase tools & equipment. So far this summer he's had to put $400 into his saw, which has cleared an immense amount of blowdown and milled enough wood to build a house!

Let's give Trevor back some of the stoke that he's created for us!

Thanks for setting this up.  I don't know Trevor, but I still appreciate his work.

I associate chainsaws with skinnies so I'm more than happy to donate.

Thanks guys, he's built plenty of skinnies and all his woodwork is next level, it's built to last!

Even though I have not visited the Shore in what feels like ages, I am more than happy to help out. Props to the builders who keep going, and those who even keep going despite their personal situation.

Thanks Hula!

The goal has been reached, Trevor is overwhelmed by the support from the community! The fundraiser has been left open for now, because it turns out nails got really expensive over the past few years since he last bought any.

Thanks everyone!
