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.
