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

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!

    I really was impressed by this article because I too have had motorists tell me before that I don’t deserve to be on the road, but was uneasy about trying to argue. After that article, and a little more research on my own, I feel that I have a “leg to stand on” now. Thanks!!!

    I tend to enjoy every article, but the recent article about layering was definitely a favorite. I rode all last winter and plan to ride all this winter, and it’s just nice to have a resource like that to point people towards when they ask how I do it πŸ™‚

    I loved the article about the conversation with the cop. Very interesting. Enter me to win, I’m already posting on the your Facebook page.

    I never win stuff, but I had a minute to amuse myself so I looked up the first post I ever read here on It was a poll about who will or won’t admit to being a year-round commuter. (I remember that I was looking for inspiration and advice about committing to commuting)I thought that I remembered a clickable poll widget, but maybe it was taken down when the article was moved to the archives?

    Yes, I have been stalking this site for that long. It’s creepy, but what can I say? You folks are just full of useful tips and product reviews!

    It is amazing how many comments free stuff elicit. Should I be entered and win, give it to someone deserving. As in someone without lights. And tell us about it. I’ve got stuff already.

    Congratulations on your 200th post! That’s AWESOME! I may not post a lot of comments on your site, but I definitely read all your post! Keep up the great work! It would be cool if you could do more reader/rider profiles. Those are always cool reads!

  9. Bill Case December 8, 2011 6:31 am 

    Oh, and I meant 2000th! NOT 200th! It’s still early and my coffee hasn’t kicked in!

    I enjoy reading commuter profiles and tips from more experienced commuters. I have been bike commuting for 3 years now, but this is the first time I’ve attempted the winter here in Utah.

    Congrats! Loved the book, so thanks for the review

    Congrats on 2000 post. But really guys, come on, just one article? That’s like finding as needle in a stack of needles…

    Most recent holiday gift guide was good. I bougth a handful of Cobra Tire Tools based on that article. Seeing as I have a rather short commute (7-8 miles) I tend to perk up and listen any time you guys are talking SS or Fixed gear bikes (so mucher simpler for how I ride).
