No responsibility will be assumed for lost, misdirected, or late mail. You will then have the ability to refer people to Adventure Cycling and participate in the program.
  5. Grand Prize Winner will be selected by random drawing from all entries received. For each new referral you make or gift you purchase, you will receive one chance at the Grand Prize i.e. if you refer in ten people you’ll have ten chances. Grand Prize is a Novara Ponderosa 27.5 bicycle from REI valued at $999.
  6. Each month we will also draw a mini-prize winner (12 total) who will receive gifts from companies such as Cygolite, Arkel, Cascade Designs, Osprey Packs, Jeff Jones, and others.
  7. Decisions of judges are final. Winner will be notified by mail and phone, and will be required to complete an affidavit of eligibility and release of liability, which must be returned within 14 days of date of notification or an alternate winner will be selected. If prize notification letter is returned as undeliverable or affidavit is not returned within the time period, prize will be awarded to an alternate winner.
