I don’t know what you’re up to this weekend but I just joined this challenge from Rapha on Strava.
This Thanksgiving holiday, don’t sit around and pile on the calories, ride them away with Rapha and Strava’s Turkey Takeoff.
Thanksgiving usually means eating and drinking as much as you possibly can. But Rapha and Strava are challenging you to ride as much as you can over the holiday to take off that turkey and burn 9000 calories* between Wednesday the 23rd and Sunday 27th November. Riders who complete the challenge will receive a Rapha Turkey Takeoff badge.
Get your TT badge:
To receive the official Turkey Takeoff badge, please create a rapha account and email your home address to firstname.lastname@example.org along with any written, photographed or digital documentation. We will blog the best submissions.
Resist is throwing a Facebook contest to see who has the best bike pic. Here are the details:
“We’ve came up with a cool Facebook/ Resist contest for this month. This time it will be of the best picture of your bike. Our top pick wins a free set of Icon Hubs (front and rear), Nomad Tires (either 2 700c or 26″) and a Congoloid bar. Check after the jump for the rules.
CONTEST: Best bike picture wins the contest. You don’t have to have any Resist parts on your bike to win. We just want to see good lookin’ whips. We take picture quality into consideration. The actual picture quality could really help you win this contest.
We’ll be judging/ commenting on the pics via the Resist Parts Facebook page. Contest will be done and over with by Dec 1st.
RULES: Contest is only for Continental US Residents only. All pictures will be asked to be submitted on the RESIST PARTS FACEBOOK page only.”
Chrome and Grime are throwing a little fixed freestyle contest:
“Well, kiddo, here’s your chance. Submit a link to your best Fixed Freestyle footage up to 1 minute long for a chance to win a major prize package from Chrome! All submissions must be in by November 23rd. Chrome’s own, Ed Wonka, will spend his Thanksgiving weekend reviewing the videos and announce a winner on Monday, November 28th. Prize packages for 1st-3rd places are as follows:
“The Gobi is made from 360g New Zealand Merino Wool with added stretch making it the perfect piece for colder winter rides. Retails for $40. View on MissionWorkshop.com
To win one, post your best over-stuffed Vandal or Rambler backpack pic on the Mission Workshop Facebook Wall and the top five posts with the most “Likes” will win a beanie. We’ll pick the winners on Monday Nov. 14.
Now don’t think this can be just any old photo, we’re thinking something like a tree’s worth of over-ripe bananas or hundreds of Barbie heads. Get creative, show us and the rest of the MW fans something we haven’t seen before.
If you don’t have a Mission Workshop bag, you can still pick up a Gobi. Enter the promo code UNICORN at checkout and get one FREE when you order any bag. We only set aside 25 for this promo so don’t miss out.”
Damian, like many of us, has a love for bikes, coffee and photography. These three items make for a perfect photo submission to the Stumptown Photo Contest. Do your cycling community a favor and vote for Damian’s photo! You can vote once every 24 hours to get to it! I’m sure he’ll share the bounty with us if he wins!
