The Needle Gate Project is a journey from the Space Needle to the Golden Gate Bridge.  It’s a pursuit of physical and mental limits.  It’s a platform for freedom both to the individuals riding and those whom are yet to be free.

We're Glad You're Here

If you’ve found yourself on our campaign page then chances are likely that you’ve let one of us bend your ear about our trip down south.  We are Team Bike Raising; Stefano Altamura, Nathan Getzin, Braden Lenny and Joshua Stinger and we’ve been looking forward to this moment for nearly a year.  We are proud to partner with She Dances who is doing the great work of providing holistic restoration for young girls who have been trafficked and sexually exploited.  Our gratitude cannot be put into words that you’ve chosen to back this campaign and bring freedom to the young girls in need of rescue.  


Special thanks to Aaron McConkey for his spectacular eye for quality film.  If you enjoyed the footage please check him out on Facebook
