Despite our still-sluggish economy, sponsors were amazingly generous this year and donated an incredible number of prizes to the Sweep! We're excited to give away all of these wonderful prizes to our participants.
Here's a rundown of the prizes, clockwise from the top:
The North Face donated some excellent clothing, as did Champion Studio. Chrome Messenger Bags sent in three of their fine jerseys, while rock star Sheila Moon Athletic Apparel donated over $500 worth of clothing including rad caps, arm warmers and more! Luce Goods, Pedal Panties, and All Hail the Black Market pitched in an assortment of colorful caps, bag, socks, beer cozies, a graffiti stencil (one-of-a-kind!) and cycling underwear for your derriere. Alameda Bicycle and Lanesplitter Pizza & Pub kicked in gift certificates!
Montano Velo / Broakland Bicycles donated hella KNOG gloves and Broakland t-shirts, while Oaklandish and Manifesto Bicycles contributed big goody bags chock-full of rad stuff from their shops!
Mike Ahrens sent in a big stack of his Wise Crackers, while some lucky soul is going to receive a pair of B. Spoke Tailor's wool cyclocross knickers!
Alite Designs generously gave two awesome bags and a TENT to the Sweep! (You know you want it.)
Duro Tire sent in a whole big box of tires - (8) 700x23 black Primera wire bead tires, and some prototype colored tires in red and brown!
We also got in some rad rims from Velocity, and huge pile of photo and messenger bags from Crumpler!
There's also fancy duds from Outlier and PUBLIC Bikes, along with memberships from Flickr, The San Francisco Bike Coalition, SFMOMA (courtesy of Fabian Falconett). And there's magazine subscriptions to COG and Momentum! Macaframa also threw in (3) DVDs of their cool film!
We also got in a big box of energy supplements from GU Energy Labs, and tons of swag from the rideSFO crew.
And Seagull Bags, a magnificent bag company based in Columbus, OH - showed their love to the Bay Area by creating this masterful messenger bag!
Thanks again to all of our sponsors and see you at the Sweep!
