2019 Washington Bike Everywhere Challenge Prizes
We are doing prizes a little differently this year. Rather than awarding only those who can log hundreds of miles and thousands of trips, we are awarding random weekly prizes for anyone who has logged at least one trip. See below for prize drawings each week.
Week 1 Prize Drawing: A Paloma Handlebar Bag by Swift Industries
The Paloma Handlebar Bag puts everything you need within reach while you’re on the move, so you can go further, faster. No more stuffed jersey pockets, or repeatedly stopping to get things out of your saddle bag or panniers. You can use it on almost any bike, as it mounts easily to the Klickfix Handlebar Adapter on your handlebars, without a front rack or complicated hardware. Swift Industries is a locally owned bicycle bag company, with a deep admiration for high quality craftsmanship. All of their products are designed and manufactured from a beautiful industrial workplace in the heart of Seattle.
Week 2 Prize Drawing: A Sitka Hip Pack by Swift Industries!
Great on bike rides, hiking trails, for bouldering, and exploring the neighborhood, our Sitka Hip Pack is the perfect all-arounder. The Sitka Pack opens upward, so accessing your things is a breeze while you’re moving fast. Swift Industries is a locally owned bicycle bag company, with a deep admiration for high quality craftsmanship. All of their products are designed and manufactured from a beautiful industrial workplace in the heart of Seattle.
Week 3 Prize Drawing: An awesome Ortlieb Back Roller Pannier Bag!
Great for urban commuting or long rides across the countryside, the Ortlieb Back Roller is an durable, stylish carry all. The ORTLIEB QL2.1 system allows fast and easy single-handed mounting and removal of the panniers, and is suitable for racks with a tube diameters up to 16 mm (hook inserts for diameters of 8, 10 and 12 mm are included).
Week 4 Prize Drawing: Selle Anatomica X2 Leather Saddle (Black/Silver)
For over a decade Selle Anatomica has worked to bring the world's most comfortable saddles to cyclists. In that tradition we are thrilled to announce X2, the Next Gen leather saddle. A radical departure from our past offering, X2 boasts a modular design that is stronger and lighter. More importantly, X2 can be disassembled and reassembled completely by hand, making it possible to replace the leather top whenever you see fit.
Social Media Contests
In each weekly "Cross Town Traffic" email, your weekly Challenge update from WA Bikes, participants also will learn about the weekly social media contest run by Cascade Bicycle Club. Submit your entries by tagging @CascadeBicycle and #bikeeverywhere.
Winners with theme related submissions will be picked at random to win a sweet, sweet prize from Ortlieb, and will have their snap featured in "Cross Town Traffic" and on the Cascade Bicycle Club facebook page.
Week 1 Social Media Contest Theme: Always Be Prepared!
This is an easy one.... send us any bike related photo showing how you are preparing to get out there this May for Bike Everywhere Month!
Week 2 Social Media Contest Theme: Shaking the rust off!
Post a photo that shows how you’re shaking off those winter blues to roll out in style this Spring. Dusting off the bike for your first commute of the season? Teaching a friend to ride for the first time? Ditching your indoor gym regiment for the sweet, sweet open road? Tag @wabikes, #WABikeEverywhere, and/or #WABikeChallenge to be considered. As long as it's bicycle related, we want to see what inspires you to get out there and ride.
Week 3 Social Media Contest Theme: Check my ride!
This week is all about serious bike love. Show it off! Got a brand new super slick carbon framed roadster? Do it justice with a pic! Have a vintage beach cruiser that's more like a feather couch mounted on a Cadillac El Dorado? Show it off! And that battle scarred, city commuting, Franken-parts fixie that can do the Kessel Run in 12 parsecs? Get your high speed lens out and capture it in motion! We want to see you with your ride, wherever it takes you!
This is the final week of the contest, and it might be our favorite category. Since it's Memorial Day on May 27, we're having a full TWO WEEK submission window for you to send in pics related to why you love living, and cycling, in Washington. Got a favorite trail in the Olympic National Park? Show us! A favorite hilltop vista of Puget Sound? Show us! A favorite back alley in downtown Bellingham? WE WANT TO SEE IT! Just drop your bike (preferably with yourself or a friend) in the frame with your favorite view of Washington State and tell us about it.
AND we'll be awarding TWO prizes for the TWO best submissions!
