It’s great to see the bicycle miles and trips rack up from our Corporate Challengers! If you haven’t been keeping track, go check out the daily totals posted on the Muscle Powered blog. We’re going to have a big party at the Firkin and Fox on Friday night the 18th to celebrate everyone’s hard work this week. In addition to announcing the winners of the Corporate Challenge, we’re going to have live music from Notch 8, and a raffle with prizes you don’t want to miss out on. Money collected from the raffle goes to benefit Muscle Powered, Citizens for a Walkable and Bikeable Carson City.
The Bicycle Authority helped us with the grand prizes again this year, two Custom Beach Cruisers from Phat Cycles! These two bikes are the nicest we’ve given away yet, a little more custom than last year’s. We traditionally give the bikes away before it gets too dark, giving people without lights the opportunity to ride home safely.
In addition to the bikes from Bicycle Authority, there are plenty of other fantastic prizes to give away, all donated by our other Bike to Work Week Sponsors! And yes, you MUST be present to win. This year’s sponsors are:
- Bicycle Authority
- Bike Carson/Tahoe
- Bike Habitat
- Bike Smith
- Capitol Automotive
- Comma Coffee (Free morning coffee for bicycle commuters)
- Cracker Box
- Firkin and Fox
- Flume Trail Bikes
- High Sierra Brewery
- Lone Mountain Veterinary Hospital
- Muscle Powered
- Nevada National Guard
- Red Bike Cycling
- The Tap Shack
Notch 8 will entertain the crowd between the raffle items, and the Cycle Pub will be at the party giving rides. The High Sierra Brewery has donated a keg of beer for the event, so look for great beer specials too! Food will be available inside at the restaurant.
