I'm sure you all remember me whining about winter....about how cold, miserable annoying it was becoming. In fact, I even signed up for some silly contest to prove that I was better than winter.
I was so tired of the shivering, the bundling, the multiple layers....just done with winter.
Yet, you all stuck with me. I rode everyday during this horrible season. And you all supported me.
Because of that support, I managed to snag a nifty gift card to Revolution Cycles. (A gift card that I could sorely use to purchase a new road bike, mind you...)
Yes, because of my Perfect Attendance during that contest, I won a prize. Because of you.
A prize that I want to pass on to you. Because quite honestly, I wouldn't have done it without you folks. I would have simply given up on the first "too cold, too snowy" day. You guys kept me accountable.
If you would like to receive this gift card (for $50.00 worth of merchandise at Revolution Cycles), please respond to this post with your favorite cycling memory. Whether its from your childhood or last week, it doesn't matter...just post it.
Mine? My first bike was purple. I think I was about 8 years old. I did everything on it! Trick mounts/dismounts, jumping over ditches, riding down super-hills, I was definitely a dare-devil! I loved it. I didn't ride it to too many places, because there weren't many places to ride it to (there weren't many places to ride to where I grew up ;-)
So, leave me a comment. You have one week! On 3/28/11 I will use a random generator (to be fair) on this post to determine the winner. Please note: you can comment as much as you want, however, only one comment will be counted for the contest (to be fair).
Again, thank you so much for all of your support!
- (P.S. Also, thank you to Capital Bikeshare for hosting the contest in the first place, goDCgo and for Revolution Cycles for supporting it!)
P.P.S: Stay tuned for some awesome Spring events!
