Now, I know that biking to work or school is its own reward – the wind in your helmeted hair, the refreshing burn in your calves, the chance to spend more time outside on beautiful days, and to feel super tough riding even on the crappy ones – but material rewards are nice sometimes too, right?
Enter the Prize Patrol!
These blue vested “Bicycle Ambassador” champions have been riding around the county all month giving out prizes left and right to riders displaying their Group Health Commute Challenge participant bands. And since we’ve only got a few more days left of Bike Month, we thought we would help encourage you to be extra diligent in riding by telling you about some of the awesome prizes you stand to win.
They include (drum roll please)…
Waterproof Ortlieb shoulder bags and panniers
JL Velo leg and arm warmers
Clif Bar 2 Mile Challenge cycling caps
Stylish Detours bags
Live at KEXP CDs
Mama Luvs reusable bags
And reflective mud flaps from RainyDayBiking.com
“Where do these great prizes come from,” you ask? They’re pretty much all donated to us by bicycle-friendly businesses. Do you happen to be associated with a generous bicycle friendly business who has something you’d like to donate to reward people for bike commuting? Get in touch with me to discuss whether it may be a good fit.
For those of you hoping to win, the remaining Prize Patrol dates and locations are:
Burke-Gilman Trail, May 26
Leschi, May 27
Lake Forest Park, May 31
And if you don’t win there, you can still join us at the Pyramid Wrap Party for a free drink and more chances to win! Look at how much better prizes make a rainy day:
Good luck, and happy riding.
