Well, no tiffin today, our afternoon sustenance has come in the form of some lovely Easter nests. Still, it's all the sugar rush we needed to crank up the randomising machine and pick a winner from among the nearly 900 of you that have joined us on Facebook. Not bad odds but there can only be one winner, and that winner is...
Lucky ol' Owen walks away with the Schwag this time. It could be you next time! okay, admittedly it probably won't be a bike but there's still going to be stuff up for grabs of a Friday, so stay tuned... and next time we promise you won't have to master any technology more complex than the comment button at the bottom of the page.
Original competition story:
Yowser! You'll want to have a crack at this one - our most valuable Schwag grab yet. We were down at IceBike to see top UK distributor Madison's range of products for this year and beyond, and we came back with a few things: some gloves, a clever bottle you can put energy gel in, some new Conti tyres to try... and a £800 Ridgeback Century bike to give away to one lucky reader! All you've got to do is be our fan on Facebook by pressing the button just below the next paragraph…
The bike is built around a Reynolds 520 frame and Carbon fork, and comes with a Compact Shimano Sora 18 speed groupset. The bike comes with full length mudguards and Ridgeback finishing kit; wheels are Alex rims on Shimano hubs and Tektro's R538 brakes take care of the stopping. It's a super useful bit of kit and did we mention versatile too - you get rack mounts for light touring duties or the commute. Add all that up and what do you have? A bike worth £800, that's what.
And it can be yours, for free, in 54, 56 or 58cm frame size. And all you have to do is become a fan of road.cc on Facebook by pressing the Facebook button above. Yup, we want to feel loved (sniff), that's all. If you're not on Facebook, well: what better incentive could you have to register than this? It only takes two ticks. If you're already on Facebook you should be able to get fanned up in the box above, or you can go to the road.cc page by clicking here. If you're already a fan, the you're already in the hat!
The compo will run for two weeks until tiffin time on Friday 12 March. Remember to win the prize don't comment: hit the Facebook Fan button. Oh, and the usual Schwag Grab rules apply.
The Eagle eyed may have noticed that there's been a slight change of bike since we went live with the Schwag grab earlier which was originally for a £600 Ridgeback Solo World but to make up for any disappointment turned the schwag-o-meter up to 11 to bring you this £800 steel tubed, mile munching beauty instead.
Good luck everyone! Let the swelling of fan numbers, and our collective warmth and pride, commence!
