In late July the EcoVelo Bicycle Gallery only contained around around 15 bikes. Since it was a little slow-going to start, I set-up a raffle to help jump-start the submissions:
The EcoVelo Gallery is a community project comprised of photos of transportational/utility bikes* submitted by readers from all over the world. To show my appreciation and encourage submissions, I’m currently running a little raffle. Here’s the deal: I have 3 pairs of lightly used Speedplay Frog SS pedals that I’m raffling off to 3 lucky winners. All you have to do is send me 4-6 photos of your bike, accompanied by a brief description of how you use it, and your name will be thrown into the hat for the drawing. If you have more than one bike you use for transportation, feel free to submit multiple (separate) entries – I’ll enter a ticket for each bike you submit. When we reach 100 gallery entries I’ll draw three names and ship the pedals to the winners. The sooner we fill the gallery, the sooner I pick the winners, so spread this around and tell your fellow bike commuters. Let’s build a gallery!
The response was far better than I could’ve hoped for, and 6 weeks later I’m happy to report we’re at 109 entries. The first few people whose names were drawn were already good in the pedal department, but I did eventually find three eager recipients. So without further ado, the winners are… Jim, Tim, and Dartanyon.
- Jim submitted his Barcroft Virginia and Klein Pinnacle
- Tim submitted his Motobecane
- Dartanyon submitted his Centurion Elite GT
Congratulations to the winners, and many thanks to everyone who participated. Let’s keep it going and grow the Gallery into something even bigger and better! —Alan
