Our sponsors see results with us on and off the podium.

We have always loved cycling and are so glad to support the Flat Tire team. These guys and gals have a passion for cycling like nothing else. Providing support needed to run their programs puts a smile on my face. It’s so great to see them introduce the sport of cycling to such young kids.John + Melanie Harris, The Stereoshop Inc., 4 year sponsor.

Having an inviting local bike shop to take my children to has been a blessing. As the bike shop has grown so have the amount of community events, races, and camps. We see our logo represented regularly as team members host events, training rides, group rides, and post podium pictures. I really like seeing the tags on social media, it has been well worth the sponsor dollars. Dr. Patrick Kelly, Wellness on The Point., 3 year sponsor.

“We love having real athletes use our products for results. The feedback we get from them really helps, especially with 1-TDC joint and muscle cream. Working with the members of Team Flat Tire Co. has been a pleasure the last few years. They always provide good content and show our support to the community.”. — Mark Sever, Elite Science., 3 year sponsor.

FUNDING OUR PROGRAM

WHERE WILL YOUR MONEY GO?

Team Education: Funding will be utilized for scholarships to obtain Level 1 coaching certifications for select team members from the PMBIA (Professional Mountain Bike Instruction Association). By becoming trained and certified instructors we will be able to effectively teach and guide local youth in all aspects of cycling. Our riders have been on bikes for decades, it’s time to give back and share the knowledge. Your support will help cover the travel cost and educational fees. Collegiate cycling sponsorships are becoming more prevalent as the sport grows. Help us cultivate our local youth, they are the future of this program.

Bike Instruction: This will be our inaugural year for kids summer camp. Spanning 5 days with one overnight trip. The kids will start with the basics and work up the skills and confidence to shred the gnar by the end of the week. Funding helps us obtain youth demo bikes for instruction, provides funding for kids to attend events, and PMBIA certifications targeted at devolving essential skills. Help us grow the positive impact our program is having on the community.

Kids Camp Scholarship Fund: Each platinum sponsorship will provide an entry to our kids camp and a Kona Honzo 24” for the camper. The scholarship will be given out as part of an essay contest. We welcome you to be part of the process and help us choose the lucky candidates.

Events: Flat Tire Co. hosts a variety of community oriented events geared towards getting parents and children active, and racing bikes. As part of your support we can include your logo on event ads and promotional items. Your company is welcome to set up a tent or participate in anything we host. Flat Tire Co. draws up to 500 people at each of our races. Contribution amount determines exposure size at events. If you are interested in spearheading funding for a specific event, camp, or clinic talk to us.

Team Support: Bikes, helmets, and shoes can cost thousands of dollars per year for members. Sponsorship dollars enable us to provide free or discounted equipment, and bikes to keep our racers and youth riders looking fresh and safe every year. Entry fees, travel funds, and lodging all add up over the course of a year. We utilize sponsor dollars to cover entry fees at USA Cycling Nationals and larger Professional level mountain bike racing events across the United States.

Van Wrap: Platinum and gold sponsors are eligible for logo exposure on the side or back of our van, contribution size determines logo size. Our van is used for transportation to and from events we host and participate in. Travel is mainly within PA, WV, OH, and the extended East Coast.

 Our team hosts regular no drop group rides for the community on both mountain and road bikes. We believe no-drop rides focused on having fun are the best way to get more butts on bikes.
