In celebration of National Bike to School Day on May 8, 2013, the National Center for Safe Routes to School is pleased to announce the National Bike to School Day Bicycle Parking Rack Giveaway via www.walkbiketoschool.org.

The National Center for Safe Routes to School, the coordinating agency for National Bike to School Day, in partnership with Saris Racks, will give away ten bike racks to encourage registration and participation in the event. All events and local resources that register at www.walkbiketoschool.org by May 31 will be entered to win one of ten Saris eight-bike Stadium Racks for bike storage at a school of their choosing. One event registration per school, please.

With one drawing taking place every week, the sooner you register your event, the more chances your school has to win.

Delivery and Logistics

In collaboration with Saris Racks, the National Center is giving away ten Saris eight-bike Stadium Racks. Each registered event and resource person is eligible to win a bike rack for a school. Contest winners will be notified by National Center staff. They must provide written confirmation from the designated school administration that the bike rack is desired and will be used before final confirmation of the award and delivery to the selected school. The above-ground rack will be shipped directly to the school, and the school will be responsible for its receipt and installation.

Please note: the Saris Stadium Rack features 4 inverted u-style hoops welded to solid c-channel base, parking eight bikes safely and securely.  The rack is free standing, with no anchoring or assembly required, and can be easily moved as needed.  The rack meets all standards for best practices in bike parking, making it easy to use and long lasting.

The Fine Print

  1. The Bike to School Day Bike Rack Giveaway contest is open to any individual in the United States who registers a Bike to School Day event or registers as a local resource on the website.
  2. Individuals of all ages — including parents, teachers, students and other community members — are eligible to be entered into the Bike to School Day Bike Rack Giveaway.  No staff member of the National Center for Safe Routes to School or University of North Carolina Highway Safety Research Center is eligible to compete in this contest.
  3. Each event and resource registration is assumed to be associated with one related U.S. school, per registration. Only one contest entry is allowed per school; multiple event entries per school are not permitted.
  4. Any event or registered resource can win only one drawing.  Winners of previous drawings will be ineligible for subsequent drawings.  Winners from the 2012 National Bike to School Day Bike Rack Giveaway are not eligible to win in 2013.
  5. All the information collected by www.walkbiketoschool.org is securely maintained and used only for the purpose of conducting the Bike to School Day Bike Rack Giveaway contest and National Bike to School Day registration.
  6. The contest winners will be selected at random and notified by e-mail or telephone. All decisions are final. If the winner does not respond to the notification within five business days or is unable to obtain permission from the designated school administration within two weeks of notification, the registrant forfeits the prize to another registrant selected by the National Center.
