B’More Chilly Winter Biking Contest


December 17th, 2010 | Categories: Events | 2 comments

You ride your bike every winter in the snow, ice, and cold winds. You deserve some recognition, right? Here’s your chance be recognized as the B’More Chilly King or Queen.

We’re holding a contest on Foursquare to see who can bike and check-in to the most bike-related venues between January 10th and February 14th, 2011. The winner gets a $100 gift certificate to REI, a great place to buy winter weather gear. Everyone that participates will be recognized at the end of the contest. Here is a complete list of venues.   (Hint: click on “Tags” and there are 14 of them.)

To participate, please register for the contest by January 10th, 2011. We will e-mail you detailed instructions once you register. If you have a smart phone and don’t have a Foursquare account, now is a good opportunity to create one“Friend”  Bike Baltimore so we can track your progress.

    I want to participate, but I don’t have a smart phone. Any other options for the rest of us?

    Hi Billy,
    I don’t have a smartphone either :( You can use foursquare with a regular phone by text messaging your locations to a number. It’s a little quirky, but would be another way to participate. If you want to test it out, feel free to friend Bike Baltimore (link above) and we’ll see if we receive your check-in notifications.

    Here is a link:

    If for some reason the SMS text creates a new venue versus checking into the prexisting one (a problem I see happening), as long as the venue name is close we’ll count it.
