June 6, 2013


From Monday June 17 through Friday June 21 Adventure Cycling will be hosting our second annual Summer Cycling Auction. To join in the auction fun, all you have to do is visit to register to bid and check out all of our featured items. This year we are offering everything from overseas and domestic tours for two, to a custom headbadge. You do not want to miss out on this fantastic opportunity to secure some unique and custom bike swag all while supporting Adventure Cycling.

Some of the items we are offering include:

Custom Folding Bike from Bike Friday

One lucky winner will receive a $1,998 voucher toward the creation of a custom-built folding bike. Bike Friday builds bikes that fit your style and fit your body. Your Bike Friday will be sized to fit you, and you can choose from their wide selection of touring, mountain, road, commuter, and tandem models. All bicycles are built by hand at Bike Friday’s factory in Eugene, Oregon. All Bike Fridays fit into a suitcase for airline travel, meaning you pay a luggage fee, not a bike fee.
