Cold and wet weather can put a damper on riding motivation and it looks like we’ll see some challenges with the weather this week. We hope the questions and giveaways for this week can help to keep the motivation rolling.
If you haven’t participated yet, we will be giving away San Diego Century bike jerseys this week (and every week until 5/19) with some fun website contest questions. Share your rides from the week and your rides from the weekend and there’s always a chance to pick up San Diego Century gear, and more gear coming from our sponsors. This week we’ll have two winning options for the week: a jersey giveaway question for Friday and a “Triple Team” giveaway option on Facebook that ends Sunday. The contest question winner will receive a free 2012 San Diego Century bike jersey. The “Triple Team” winner will receive a free “Triple Team” entry for the winner and 2 friends to ride the 103 mile century (or another distance if preferred).
Whether or not you want to participate, be sure to check out our 2012 merchandise, including the jersey, t-shirts and caps.
This week’s question is “What is your preference when the weather is tough: Spin class, riding on the trainer, cross training, or watching Tour de France classics by the fire?” Share your answers and your workouts for the judges. Post a comment below with your answer to get in on the Jersey contest.
