Unicorns and Scorpions: Win Sweet Swag with Fort Collins Bike Share and Kaiser Permanente!


94_(FB Ad) Rider Giveaway Program

 

Have you heard?! Fort Collins Bike Share is teaming up with Kaiser Permanente to bring you yet another incentive program to participate in this summer!

 

The Ride All Summer Prize Giveaway program is now in its second month! There are two ways to participate:

 

  1. If you check out one of our bikes anytime between now and Labor Day, you’ll be entered to win our grand prize giveaway! All you have to do is grab a bike and enjoy your ride! One special winner and 5 runner-ups will be announced Friday, September 29th.
  2. The top 5 riders of each month, June through August, will win some sweet swag. Top riders are determined by the number of total hours ridden. (Remember, riders who hold membership passes get free ride time built in – 1 hour on weekdays; 2 hours on weekends – we recommend getting a head start by taking advantage of membership pricing!)

 

June’s top 5 riders have already been announced on our webpage! Congrats Daniel D., Rob V., Melissa H., Olivia C., and Ian J.! Special thanks to Topo Designs for providing last month’s special prize giveaway!

 

FAQ

Who can participate?

Anybody who is 18 or older and has established an account with our bike share at bike.zagster.com/fortcollins can participate. (You can also download the Zagster app on the Apple or Google Play stores.) Our bike share’s medical insurance policy doesn’t cover children and adolescents, therefore we are only able to rent bikes to adults age 18 and older.

 

How will we contact you?

We will contact you directly via the email associated with your account, so be sure to check it frequently!

 

When will I be notified if I’ve won?

For the top 5 rider of the month promotion, we’ll send you an email within two weeks of the month’s end. For the grand prize giveaway, we’ll send you an email on Friday, September 29th.

 

Are winners announced publicly?

Yes, all winners are announced publicly on our webpage, Facebook, and Instagram  – we’ll use your first name and last initial to identify you. Grand prize winners will be announced on Friday, September 29th; top 5 riders of the month will be announced within two weeks following the previous month’s end.

 

What will the prizes be?

The prize of the month will be announced on our webpage for our top 5 rider giveaway. Stay tuned for our grand prize giveaway announcement coming soon!

 

You’ve got me hooked! I’m psyched! How do I tag you on all of my adventures?

Awe, shucks! You’re too sweet! You can use #fcbikeshare to let us know where the Zagster cruiser bikes end up this summer. Goofy selfies and/or creative bike routes are highly encouraged!

Glad you mentioned it. I’ll answer your enthusiasm with a question – did you know that you can purchase a helmet for just $5 at Visit Fort Collins? That’s right – you can BUY, not rent, your own nutcase-style helmet from our friends at the local tourism office in Old Town Square.

One last question – what has Fort Collins Bike Share been up to since Bike To Work Day / Bike From Work Bash?

Amongst other projects and events, we’ve been filming to promote the Ride All Summer Prize Giveaway! A totally wacky promo video is coming your way soon!! Special thanks to Chris and Jamaal from FC Public Media for all your hard work helping us get started!

In the meantime, I’ll leave you with these behind-the-scene gems! Check out the GoPro camera-mounted rig FC Public Media built us out of PVC pipe! We think it looks like a unicorn and a scorpion…but maybe that’s just our imagination running wild 😉
