    Bike To Work Day - Win a Bike Contest - Please help

    The BikeLongBeach organization held a contest for bike to work day. Instructions were to ride to work that day, take a picture in front of your place of employment, write a short blurb on why you like to ride to work in Long Beach and submit. Here is my submission:



    Here is the link to the photo for the contest on Facebook. Like the photo. I have a 1 in 6 chance of winning a new bike.

    1 in 6 chance? I'd like those odds, hope you win too!
    You're competing with a guy who brought brownies, is that fair?

    More worried about the one with the baby!

    I don't see how the other female counts as that looks like just a random pic of her with her bike....the instructions were to ride to work and take a picture in front of your place of employment...

    What if you're unemployed... can you ride to the work center or freeway off ramp and take your picture there?

    Think you could have done that.... Three of the 6 pictures don't include the place of employment in the pic... But too late to do it this year.

    No problem!

    Keep on riding and maybe you'll win next year too.

    Post pics of what you won.

    Show us what you'll do with it.
