A few weeks ago, we got an email from Brinkley Messick, an artist in Colorado who told us he loved our public lands, and has been involved in outdoor recreation and stewardship for almost 15 years. Brinkley was part of a competition with New Belgium Brewery, who is celebrating their 25th anniversary by choosing 25 local artists around the country to design custom art bikes. Each custom bike will be put in a competition with the winning art bike and artist receiving $5,000 to be given to a nonprofit of their choice.
Outdoor Alliance is the nonprofit of Brinkley's choice, and he plans to ride his custom cruiser the 300+ miles from Salida, Co to the New Belgium Brewery in Fort Collins.
We're psyched to be working with Brinkley and New Belgium Brewing, and hope that you'll take a moment to vote for Brinkley's bike and help Outdoor Alliance win $5,000 to protect public lands.
You can vote daily until August 31.
