Do we have a winner for the 2008 Bike Giveaway?
« on: February 22, 2009, 01:35:43 pm »
I've noticed over the last several months a full page ad in Adventure Cyclist magazine for the bike giveaway.
Just curious who may have won the Surly Long Haul Trucker and the ACA summer tour grand prize.

Or do we have any of the monthly winners who've had a chance to use their cool new gear?

I am pretty sure the winner was annouced in last month's magazine. I have trashed mine so I can't tell you though.  Sorry.
Happy trails and may the wind be at your back!

That's definitely not the case. The drawing took place just last week (February 15th). Thanks for the reply though TJ.

Anybody out there a winner?

This notice appeared in the February 4th version of BikeBits, Adventure Cycling's enewsletter:

AND THE WINNERS ARE . BICYCLING BOATBUILDERS
The Jean and Stephen Van Dam family of Boyne City, Michigan, are the winners
of the 2008 Bike Giveaway super-duper grand prize: a Long Haul Trucker
touring bike from Surly Bicycles worth $1,000, along with free passage on a
2009 Adventure Cycling seven-day event tour. "It's Steve who's getting the
bike," Jean said. "He's been riding an ancient Trek, so he's the lucky
winner. We're very excited to win the bike and the Adventure Cycling tour."
These fine people have been members for eighteen years. You can check out
Steve's new ride here:

Adventure Cycling's members certainly are a diverse lot, a fact that the Van
Dams' website underscores:

Poops I was wrong.  I just knew I had read it some where but it must have been in Bike Bits.  Thanks!
Happy trails and may the wind be at your back!
