JOIN THE CREW

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 Grassroots

Love riding, digging and just generally living and breathing bikes? Us too! Our sponsorship is all about building community with bikes. As such, race results are cool, but your attitude and the content you create are way more important to us.

What you get from us:

  • An exclusive SDR Crew team trucker cap & t-shirt
  • 30% off all non-clearance retail items for the year your sponsorship is active
  • Promotion of you, your posts and other content on SDR social channels
  • Possible larger individual sponsorships. 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 WTF Bike Explorers Guiding Principles (basically, don’t be an asshole)
  • 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 social media account we can follow and repost (IG or Tik Tok preferred)
  • You’ll post content every 2 weeks minimum in your gear w/SDR’s account tagged

 

THE APPLICATION WINDOW FOR 2021 INDIVIDUAL SPONSORSHIPS IS CURRENTLY CLOSED. Please follow us over on Instagram or sign up for our email list to stay up to date on when we will be accepting new applications.

Frequently Asked Questions

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

Nope, this isn’t a legal agreement. Anarchy!

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.
