Help us Meet a $1,000 Match, Win a Beer Pannier!

May 23, 2014

During the Build it. Bike it. Be a Part of it. campaign we're highlighting ways that cycle tourism generated by the growing U.S. Bicycle Route System positively impacts local economies. This week we’re celebrating Bike and Beer Week as local craft breweries are a favorite destination among bicycle tourists. Show us how you #biketobeer on Twitter and Instagram!

Everyone who donates to support the U.S. Bicycle Route System by Monday, May 26, at 5:30 pm MST will be entered to win a Bike Hermit Growler Pannier for their bicycle. 

We’re also giving away a bike tour to one lucky donor! Anyone who donates $25 or more today through Sunday, May 25th will be entered to win a spot on any U.S. tour from Beer and Bike Tours, one of Adventure Cycling's Corporate Members. 

So far we've raised $54,802 towards our $125,000 goal. We're almost halfway there! Help us reach our campaign goal by donating today for a chance to win these Bike and Beer week prizes. 

And remember that when you donate $50 or more throughout the month of May, you’ll also be entered to win a Raleigh Sojourn touring bike.

Today, your donation will be matched 2:1 by an anonymous donor and up to $1,000 by the Almaden Cycle Touring Club, meaning that your gift will go three times as far! Thank you for helping us build the U.S. Bicycle Route System. Fun and adventure await you in your own back yard!
