What Do BMWs, Beck's beer, Black Forest Cuckoo Clocks, and Today's Giveaway Have in Common?

May 26, 2015

German engineering.

Ordinarily, you won’t hear “free” and “German-made” in the same sentence but today is no ordinary day. Today, we’re giving away one finely crafted, German-made Ortlieb bag, for free! This Ortlieb Vario is both backpack and pannier. Same water-proof fabric that made you a fan of Ortlieb on your first tour. Same easy roll closure.

Your bike's version of the little black dress.

Donate today to be entered into the raffle. Although Ortlieb is pure German in their attention to detail, they think globally and that’s why they support the USBRS. They’ve generously agreed to match all donations up to $1,000 for today only. That’s a “one-to-one” match, or eins zu eins in German.

Need a new bike to showcase your German-made bag? Donate $50 or more to be added to the drawing for this Revolt 1 from Giant. A $25 or more donation gives you a chance to win a Danube Bike Path 7-day bike tour with Bike Tours Direct. Winner will be drawn at the end of the month!

The 2015 Build It. Bike It. Be a Part of It. Campaign runs through May 31, 2015. All donations are tax deductible and support Adventure Cycling's organizing efforts and technical assistance for the U.S. Bicycle Route System. The campaign is supported by Adventure Cycling members, bicycle industry partners, bicycle clubs, and cyclists across North America.
