I love to bike, particularly since a hip injury sidelined long-distance running for me. There are some pretty exciting cycling events in the upcoming months you may just want to check out. May just happens to be National Bike Month, so chances are there will be events in your community. Pass out some custom printed give aways at your local event and brand your business while giving bikers something they can really use.
Friday, May 17th: Bike to Work Day in Washington, D.C. Seventy pit stops will set up around the city where riders can enjoy breakfast and entertainment. Riders may also enter to win a bike and pick up other prizes like printed promotional products.
Bike to School Day: May 8, 2013
Bike to Work Week: May 13-17, 2013
LeTourdeShore 2013: June 14-15, 2013. This is a 2-day, 100 mile ride from the Chicago lakeshore to Michigan. Friday night party included.
Ragbrai: July 21-27, 2013. Bike through Iowa.
Take a look the League of American Bicyclists’ website to read up on bike safety, data, and events in your area. You can search for biking events by zip code and a radius of up to 100 miles.
If you’re looking to promote your biking event or to promote your business during your bike event, look to Show Your Logo. With 750,000 promotional products available for customization, we can deliver exactly what you’re looking for. In need of some inspiration? We’ve compiled a list of promo items suitable for sale or for give aways at your biking event.
Every biker will appreciate the availability of water to rehydrate after a long ride. Make the moment memorable when you print your logo or personal message on custom bottled water. A thirsty event participant won’t soon forget your company’s name.
There are so many good reasons to bike to school or to work. Among them? Doing good for the Earth by putting less pollutants into the air when we drive our cars and by using less gas. Continue on this green path when you order recycled plastic water bottles. Not only can these durable bottles be used again and again, they’re made from recycled materials. These sports bottles are a perfect way to convey a “go green” message at a bike event while promoting your company name and logo.
In the same vein, here’s a sports bottle that is eco-friendly in a different kind of way. This one is biodegradable in the event that it does find its way into a landfill.
A long bike ride calls for some supplies. These super affordable, drawstring backpacks are a terrific give away for a bike event. Riders can strap these backpacks to their backs and carry some much-needed gear. Even better? Your logo will be highly visible for the duration of that long ride.
Everyone loves a brand name cap, and these are no exception. Shield bikers’ eyes from the glare of the sun with these Nike hats and give a gift they’re guaranteed to reach for time and time again, on and off the bike. With your company name and logo all these hats, you’re bound to give your marketing dollars a work out.
What feels amazing on a broiling hot day, under the blazing sun after pedaling up a long, steep hill? I can tell you that in addition to a big drink of water, a few spritzes with these personal water misters is extremely refreshing. It may just revitalize those bikers enough to make it up the next one. Here’s another promotional product they’ll be packing all summer long.
For those longer rides, snacks may be a necessity to keep bikers’ energy levels up. Make sure they know exactly who supplied them with those give away snacks when you print on snack bags. Pretzels? Popcorn? Carbs deliver a quick boost of needed energy.
Not only will these reduce the glare of the sun on the road or the bike path, they’re made of recycled materials. Go green when you bike instead of drive and go green simply by giving away these sunglasses. Bonus: they’re super affordable.
These personalized sunscreen protection kits are much appreciated give aways. Sun protection is a must-have, and when bikers forget to pack their own they’re going to appreciate your company’s gift in a big way. It may be the day of the event. It may be later. At some point this personal sunscreen kit is going to be a skin-saver.
It’s inevitable. Some bike rides leave you dripping. Print this very affordable headbands with your logo or personal message and give a give away that every biker can use during a summer ride.
What event is complete without the customary, custom printed t-shirts? Commemorate, commemorate when you print these Hanes wicking t-shirts. They’re great for the ride and they’re a great way to remember it, too.
