Ladies and gentlemen, the Summer Games officially begin today. First up, the Social Cycling category. Local events going on during National Bike Month might make this even easier for you (for example, I plan on getting my group ride in on Nashville’s Bike to Work day this Friday).
Over the next three weeks, you need to complete at least two events from the following list. Be creative with combining events, but please go on at least two separate rides. Once you have completed your events, there are two ways to enter:
1) Email us links to your blog posts detailing the activities; or
2) Email us your story and photographs.
Please use the subject line [Summer Games - Part I]. At any time, you can also upload your photos to our Summer Games Flickr pool. By entering, you give us permission to publish your content here.
Remember, you must complete two events from each of the three categories (six events total between now and July 18) to be entered to win the Batavus BuB. However, those who compete in this category – Part I: Social Cycling – will be eligible to win a set of Clarijs Panniers (My Dutch Bike), a Terry Botanika flare skort and Euro Halter (Terry Bicycles) or a Nutcase helmet (Nutcase). Prize winners will be determined by random drawing on June 8. A huge thank you to the sponsors for their support of bike fun!
Ready, set, RIDE!
