I first saw this at Consider Biking (hat tip to Meredith), but I thought it would be appropriate to share this news here. While many of the readers on Consider Biking are – not surprisingly – bikers or soon-to-be bikers, many of the Xing Columbus readers are probably interested in bikes, but not buying one anytime soon. So this contest is perfect for you!
On May 22nd (conveniently as part of Bike to Work Week) BikeTown will give away bikes. (I think 50, it wasn’t 100% clear.) To win, you must write them an essay on why you deserve the bike. This contest is clearly aimed at non-bikers, or people on the fence about biking. If you are into biking already, it doesn’t seem like they will choose your essay. (Read about past winners for ideas.)
And oh yea, Bike to Work Week (BTWW) is coming. May 12 – 16. Read more on the BTWW website.
