In case you hadn’t heard, it’s National Bike Month here in the US and there is a lot going on. Many local groups are hosting bike to work events and it seems like there’s at least half a dozen fat tire festivals happening every weekend. With that in mind we thought we’d highlight a few events and contests (we know you love ’em) happening this month.
This weekend the Colorado High School Cycling League is hosting a series of events to raise funds for the youth cycling program (one of, if not the, largest in the US). There’s a gala dinner in Denver hosted by Gary Fisher tomorrow night (seats start at $100) and a group ride in Boulder the following morning (Sunday, May 15).
On Monday CLIF Bar is launching an online campaign called “Meet the Moment” where users are asked to upload photos and stories about their experiences outdoors. One lucky winner will get a chance to pursue their next adventure (like a free trip to trek the Amazon) but the cool thing is CLIF will donate $5 to one of five projects to “protect the places we play” for every person who participates. Not only that, they’ll double the donation if more than 10,000 people participate.
Performance Bike 100th Store Giveaway
It’s hard to believe but this month Performance Bike is opening their 100th store and to celebrate they’re giving away some big prizes during the month of May, including a hundred $100 gift cards, two Pearl Izumi gear kits, and a GT Sensor 9r Expert mountain bike worth $2,349. You can enter online or in the store through the end of the month.
