Door Prizes & Auction Items
In addition to a custom Surly Bikes demo course, Surly Brewing beer tent, music, group rides, and a ton of fun, the Surly Masher will also be giving away and auctioning off some truly amazing sponsor products!
ASIDE: We originally planned to do the prize drawing after the event, but the more we talked about it, the more we agreed that it would be way more fun to announce the winners at the event. If that sounds like a ‘duh’ moment to you, then you’re in good company. For more information about how the prize mechanics will work, please check out the revised Door Prize FAQ and Silent Auction FAQ. Otherwise, with the ‘blah blah blah’ out of the way, let’s take a look at the goods!
Door prizes are a small way of saying ‘thank you for helping us raise awareness and funds for Full Cycle.’
- Surly Bikes has donated several items, including an 8-pack rack, a Sunrise handle bar, a jacket, and Rabbit Hole rims.
- The good folks at Twin Six promised a bunch of swag, including men’s and women’s jerseys, t-shirts, sweatshirts, socks, and bottles. A mighty Gale then confirmed the winter mix will include a couple of Hellcats Hoodies and The Recon LS thermal jerseys.
- The Banjo Brothers will be donating 3 large backpacks – one red, one white, and one black!
- The cold-weather killers at 45NRTH have donated a pair VanHelga 26x4.0 tires for your fattie!
- Colorado’s Big Agnes is sending us trucker hats, t-shirts, and stickers to give away.
- Last but not least, Full Cycle Bike Shop is donating a free tune-up and some sweatshirts to the mix!
Silent auction items
The "big ticket" items donated by sponsors to help us raise larger chunks of change for youth experiencing homelessness. Each item will have a minimum bid price.
*The Surly's promise this is a collaboration not to be missed, with more details to be announced in the coming weeks!
Is that all?
First off, pump the brakes. Some of those prizes are pretty bad apple. THANK YOU TO ALL OF OUR SPONSORS!
Second off, probs not. We expect more to come and will update you accordingly.
