The 2000th Post Giveaway Contest!

As we mentioned yesterday, we’re celebrating our milestone of 2000 published articles here on To help celebrate, we’ve decided to hold a simple contest:

2000th copy

One lucky winner will win a prize package, sponsored by our friends at Planet Bike and Banjo Brothers. This package includes the following:

–One Planet Bike Blaze 1W headlight

— One Planet Bike Superflash Turbo taillight

— One pair of Planet Bike socks

— One Planet Bike under-helmet beanie

— One Banjo Brothers commuter backpack (model 01050 in black)

— One t-shirt in your choice of size shirts

— One sticker pack (assorted stickers for your bike/helmet/toolbox)

— One Chainspirations “For the Frill of It” zipper pull in red/white/blue (pictured below)


Entering is easy as can be…simply leave a comment with a link to your favorite article…we’ve got 2000 to choose from, so surprise us with something from the archives! And, we’re letting contestants enter another way: via our Facebook page. Leave a comment on both our site AND our Facebook page and you will double your chances to enter! The contest will run until midnight (Eastern Standard Time) on Sunday, December 11, 2011, at which time a winner will be chosen at random from the combined pool of contestants on both entry points. (US Only)

You must provide a valid email address with your comment or be able to access your messages via Facebook…if we can’t get hold of you to tell you that you won, another winner will be selected from the pool. Also, failure to submit a link to one of our articles in your comment will nullify that entry. If your comment doesn’t appear immediately, have no fear: we’ll check our spam filter throughout the contest period and approve your entries as they come in.

Questions? Hit us up before the contest period expires at info[at]bikecommuters[dot]com.

Good luck, and thank you for reading along over the years!
