‘Art Bike’ Competition
Press release
Design and win a unique Juicy electric bike worth up to £1000
In celebration of the Peak District Summer of Cycling, Buxton-based electric bike company Juicy Bike is offering the fantastic opportunity for all budding art - and bike - enthusiasts out there to create a design to embellish a Juicy Bike frame.
The winning design will then be made in to a Juicy Bike electric bike, worth £1000, to be presented to the winner in the summer.
Juicy Bike is keen to see wild and wonderful ideas: rhinestones, decoupage, or just brilliant paintwork - let your imagination run free - but the bike must remain ride-able for the entry to be accepted.
Competition entry begins on Friday 7 March, and closes on Thursday 1 May. The winning entrant will then be given a bike frame on which to carry out their transformation, and in June, Juicy Bike will build the frame into an electric bike.
The winner will be revealed, and the Art Bike will be displayed for the first time, on Saturday 21 June at L’Eroica Britannia Festival in the Bakewell Show Ground, where the bike will be ridden in a lap of honour around parts of the race route in participating Derbyshire villages.
It will then displayed at the Cavendish Arcade during Buxton Festival and be part of the Buxton Carnival.
The winner will be presented their unique Juicy Bike at the end of the Buxton Festival in July.
Frame styles, plus baskets and panniers, can be seen on line at www.juicybike.com Silhouettes are also available to download on the Juicy Bike Facebook page.
Designs should be submitted on paper to, Juicy Bike, 5 the Colonnade Buxton, Derbyshire SK17 6SN, or by email to uksales@juicybike.com. Terms and conditions below.
