It must be something in the water. First it was our photo contest, which if you haven’t noticed (who couldn’t), is washing over EcoVelo like a tsunami. Then there’s Yuba’s video contest running this month, which we posted about last week. And now, PUBLIC is hosting an essay contest and giving away a pair of new bikes.
We are introducing two new PUBLIC bike models this fall. These bikes will be available for sale in mid-November 2010. But before we make these bikes available to the general public, we will offer two people a chance to win one of our new PUBLIC bikes by inspiring us with your vision of how our world will look from the seat of a PUBLIC bike.
What you need to do to enter: Tell us in ~200 words or less where you would take us and what we would do on a 90 minute bicycle trip in your hometown.
Details about the contest are available on the PUBLIC website.
The new bikes are 1×7 derailleur-equipped, steel-framed city bikes with alloy fenders and chainguards. They’ll be available in both step-through and diamond frame models at $495.
