MADISON, WI (BRAIN)—The entry deadline is fast approaching—Friday, March 29—for the first round of Saris’ 2013 Bike Corral Contest, in which one winner will get a car parking space converted to a 10-bike parking facility.
Saris received more than 70 entries from across the county for 2012’s inaugural contest, and awarded bike corrals to the Old State Bank of Tenino in Washington state and Union Jack Pub in Broad River, Indiana. Both winners were able to show considerable need for more bicycle parking in their busy business districts, and were also able to rally considerable community support.
For 2013 the contest retains the same format: Entrants submit a photo and brief description of why they would like to see a Saris Bike Corral in that location. Entries can be submitted either through the Saris Facebook page, or by emailing the information directly to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Three finalists will be selected and entered into the final voting round, which runs from April 1-5. The winner will be announced April 8.
