This is a very special and exciting post!
So, as you know because I told you over the weekend, I never really intended on “keeping” my bike. My plan all along has been to either give it back to Echelon or donate it to raise more money for the Livestrong foundation. It’s a brand new, beautiful bike but just isn’t for me. But I know I can use it to do a lot of good and I’m proud to ride on Sunday and raise money for such a good cause.
With that being said, here’s the deal. I’m going to auction off my new bike to one of you. 100% of the money raised go straight to cancer research as part of the Livestrong Foundation and I will ship you out the bike next week after the event. I’ll ride on Sunday with you in mind and that will keep me going. 🙂
The bike is a Felt FitWoman road bike…brand new as of February. It’s the ZW2 model and is super lightweight and comfortable. I’m 5’6 and this bike fit me perfectly and was very easy to ride. The bike retails at about $4,999, making this the highest priced raffle I’ve ever done on the blog.
I installed and paid for the pedals myself and they work great….I had them loosen up a bit when I was having issues clipping in and out but they are wonderful for a beginner. Just try not to fall over at the stop signs like me. Sigh.
Since this is a BIKE we are raffling off, people, the rule is you have to donate $20 to enter…..$40 if you want me to enter your name TWICE, giving you more of a chance to win. Also, I’m asking that the winner pay the $50 shipping charge….but I think that’s pretty fair. You would still get a brand new road bike for only about $70!
Please make the donation to my fundraising page and I will keep all your information in an Excel spreadsheet.
The auction will go on until Thursday (5/20) of this week. On Friday I will notify the winner.
Thank you for your support….I’m really excited about this!
