In their quest to look and feel their best, today’s consumers want to get on the road to a lifetime of wellness and Nutrisoda, the Good Soda, is ready to help with its Good to Go promotion. The promotion creates opportunities to win ten Giant OCR Alliance 1 performance road bicycles, valued at $1,500 each, as Grand Prize Giveaways in the national on pack promotion, 185 Giant helmets awarded for first prize winners, and 1,000 Nutrisoda-Giant water bottles for second prize winners.

On-air radio contests in select markets will give away 51 Giant FCR 1 fitness bicycles valued at $900 each. Additionally, Nutrisoda will give away 1,000 Giant Boulder mountain bikes through local entries at participating retailers in select markets.

“We are very excited to be partnering with one of the most widely known bicycle brands in the world,” said Maile Buker, Ardea Beverage Company vice president of marketing and strategy. “Teaming with Giant is an ideal way to introduce our delicious nutrient-enhanced soda to a fitness-oriented consumer.”

“This promotion is a great way to further the active lifestyle benefits of cycling to a broad national audience and introduce new people to the sport,” said An Le, global marketing director for Giant Bicycle. “Giant is focused on inspiring adventure and healthier lifestyles through cycling, and Nutrisoda is a great partner to help us reach new consumers and support our company’s mission.”
