Steven Meyer, MAS, national sales manager at Arch Promo Group (PPAI 820951, Silver) – the No. 38 supplier in the 2024 PPAI 100 – is about to embark on a wild adventure.

Over the next two months, the 25-plus-year veteran of the promotional products industry will be riding the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route (GDMBR).

  • Stretching approximately 2,700 miles long, it’s considered the grandest unpaved cycling route in North America.
  • The route begins in Banff, Alberta, Canada, and finishes at the U.S.-Mexico border in Antelope Wells, New Mexico.
  • If he can average 45 miles a day, Meyer says he’ll complete the ride in about 60 days.

Building A Better Future

Meyer’s goal with this journey is to raise awareness and funds for the Promotional Products Education Foundation (PPEF).


Arch Promo Group has committed to match the first $5,000 of donations, and Meyer hopes another industry leader will step up to match the next $5,000.

“The challenges and difficulties of this ride don’t really compare to the challenges so many families have in getting financing together for higher education,” Meyer says. “Your generosity and donations help fund dreams for these families, and I believe we all have a stake in that future.”

You can support Meyer by donating to the PPEF here.


At both the regional and national level, Meyer has been an active volunteer in the industry for more than 20 years.
