July Challenges Bring August Prizes

The Ride for Roswell Torch has been lit.

Some riders are already picking up the rewards they’ve earned so far.

We don’t know about you, but it definitely feels like the Summer of the Ride is ON.

Let’s celebrate with some fun, and let’s challenge ourselves to make a huge impact this summer. Over the next few weeks we have some exciting opportunities — check it out!

Ride Starter Kit GiveAway

Whether you are riding with us or riding your own ways, we want to support you. That’s why, we’re giving away a bike as part of our Ride Starter Kit.

What’s the catch? You just have to be registered by July 25. That’s it. Just register for the Summer of the Ride and start fundraising — don’t wait, do it today.

The starter kit includes:

  • A hybrid bike
  • A Gift Card to Campus Wheelworks for a helmet
  • A backpack filled with snacks, goodies and some surprises
  • A water bottle
  • A limited edition 25th anniversary Ride T-shirt
  • Plus your Rider Bib & Kit!

We’ll announce the winner on the week of July 27 and set up a time to deliver your Ride Starter Kit to you! Just in time for you to get your riding in between August 1 – 21.*

Summer of the Ride Challenge

In honor of our 25th anniversary, we’ve come up with a checklist of 25 things to do. Download the check list below and get to work!

Not only will crossing tasks off the list help you reach fundraising superstardom (also known as the Extra Mile Club), and get you ready to log some miles in August, but if you cross off 20 or more tasks, then you will be entered to win some pretty awesome prizes:

The Grand Prize: $1000 donation to your Ride courtesy of West Herr Automotive Group

Our friends from West Herr want to contribute to your fundraiser! They will donate $1,000 to your Ride. You will receive a special delivery from our staff with a big check and any of your fundraising rewards that you haven’t already picked up right to your house. Your photo with the big check will appear on all our social accounts, too.

Backyard BBQ Pack

Enjoy some Sahlen’s hot dogs and ice-cold Coca Cola products in your own back yard! You can pick up the official Ride for Roswell beer from our friends at Big Ditch who will be chipping in some gift cards for you. A big thanks to our sponsors that are putting this great package together! This Sahlen’s cooler full of food, drinks and swag will make for a great post-ride party. We’ll even deliver it right to your front step.

Ride Swag Pack

Ride in style this summer. Our partners at AdPro are making sure you have all the latest Ride for Roswell gear! You’ll even get a Ride for Roswell cooler for your post-ride party! Make sure to check the pockets of your new swag — you never know what our other surprises we might have snuck in there!

And all three of our Summer of the Ride Challenge winners will get a shout out on our TV special that will serve as the finale to our Summer of the Ride. So, make sure you are registered for the Summer of the Ride and start checking things off. You have until the end of July to get 20 or more tasks checked off in order to be entered to win. Submit your completed checklist by emailing it to us or tagging us in a picture of it on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.*
