Well, the first phase of the LGRAB Summer Games is over, and we have had a blast reading and sharing your incredible, inspiring entries–more than 50, at last count! We’ll be drawing for the first round of prizes tonight, so be sure to get your entries in by noon today if you want to be included.
The Learning Experiences portion of the contest starts today, and I’ve been looking forward to this one. Even non-bike owners can participate, since two of the events don’t necessitate having a bike of your own. My bikes are especially excited at the prospect of me performing a maintenance task. I am especially excited about test-riding a different type of bike: drop bars, here I come. Ladies and gentlemen, your challenge awaits.
June 7-June 27: Learning Experiences
- Perform a maintenance task — big or small!
- Decorate your bike
- Read a book about cycling
- Carry a load on your bike — groceries, etc.
- Test ride a different type of bike than you normally ride
Prizes for this round (to be awarded to anyone who plays in Part II) include a Mark’s Rack from Rivendell, a canvas utility pannier from Minnehaha and a Bates Crate. Winners will be determined by random drawing on July 29. As always, email us your blog links or your stories and photos using the subject line “Summer Games Part II Entry” (and don’t forget to check out our Flickr group). Don’t forget that you must complete two events in each round to be eligible for the grand prize of a Batavus BuB. See our original post for complete details.
Thanks to all the sponsors and players! You can drool over the complete prize list here.
