Fat Cyclist: Change a Life, Get Your Money Doubled, and Win a Dream Bike
I love seeing the incredible things that can happen when good people and companies combine their natural inclination to do the right thing into a collective uber-outrageous nexus of awesomeness.
That's what's happening right here, right now, and I really hope you'll be a part of it. Because if you do, you'll for sure be drastically changing the lives of children in Zambia -- you'll be a part of why they're able to stay in school longer, get more work done, get better jobs, make a difference in their families' well-being, and in general have a better life.
And you'll for sure be having every dollar you donate matched by Trek. Which means, right now, your generosity is twice as effective.
And -- finally -- there's a chance that by being part of this you'll win a dream bike that is so dreamy that other dream bikes dream about growing up to become this dream bike.
One person who donates will be randomly drawn to win a Trek Madone 7 Series Frameset. This is Trek's absolute top-of-the-line road racing frame. It is beyond incredible.
But you don't just get the frame in whatever color Trek happens to have in inventory. No. Your bike will be styled with Trek's Project One customizing program, letting you select from thousands of colors and design schemes, from boldly simple to outrageously cool.
Of course, a frame isn't exactly a bike, is it? You're going to need to get yourself some wheels and stuff to go with this super-zooty Madone frameset.
And as it turns out, the wheels, bar, and stem for this ultra-dream bike will be provided by ENVE Composites, a designer and manufacturer (right here in the USA, thank you very much) of parts so beautiful you can't help but want to frame them&until you put them on your bike. At which point you're really glad you didn't go and put such incredible stuff on your wall.
Even with all this Trek and ENVE goodness, though, you don't have a complete bike. And that's where SRAM comes in, with a full complement of SRAM RED - Black Edition components: Shifters, derailleurs, crankset, cassette, everything. It's the first choice for riders and racers who won't accept any compromise.
How the Contest Works and How To Enter
It's very easy to enter the contest. Just donate any multiple of $10.00. You know: $10.00, or $20.00, and so forth. For every $10.00 you donate, you get a chance at winning this bike. And since Trek is matching your donation, you'll actually get double the chances of winning the bike (of course, everyone else does too, so I'll leave it to the statisticians as to whether your chances actually improve).
But you know what? a World Bicycle Relief bike -- the bikes we're raising money to buy for kids in Zambia -- cost $134. So if you donate $134 (or more), we'll throw in three extra chances for your donation. And that goes for every $134 you donate, so $268 nets you an extra three chances.
You need to donate by the end of day, Wednesday July 31, to have Trek match your donation, and that's when this contest ends, too.
*By entering this contest, your contribution will be matched $ for $ byTrek (up to $90,000). However, this contribution is not tax-deductible given that you are purchasing tickets for a contest. If you want your contribution to be tax-deductible, please support the general Trek match here.
