Serfas Speed Stem Bag Contest Winner

07 Apr

This past Monday we held contest to give away a Serfas Speed Stem Bag to some lucky reader. The winner  was determined upon the basis of the comments they left at the bottom of the review—they had to tell me why they needed the bag and I would select the cyclist I thought most worthy of sporting this top tube bag on their bike. I had a very difficult time trying to decide who the winner was going to be, but I finally selected Laura, the Pennsylvania cyclist behind the Wife, Mother, Awesome Girl blog (“Just another girl who used to be cool”). In addition, I selected Aaron of the Chatter Gets Fit blog as the second-place winner.

Laura said she needed this bag because some of her friends have convinced her to go a Summer Solstice Ride which will be about 150 miles in a single day. She thought this bag would make her a “much more ‘hip’ and ‘with-it’ addition to the group by storing her snacks appropriately—instead of wearing a uber-dorky backpack of snacks and gear.” Laura used to ride a bike from Target, which means it probably weighed more than my Jeep Grand Cherokee. She has been “married forever” and has three kids, three dogs, and three bikes and is hoping to work her way up to five bikes (I hate to tell her this, but that won’t be enough). Among the groups who have helped shape Laura into a great cyclist are  The Philly Bike Club, Sturdy Girl Cycling, and the Bicycle Coalition of Philadelphia/Women Bike PHL Initative.

While Laura was the winner I felt that Aaron (Chatter Gets Fit) was also deserving, but I only had one Serfas Speed Stem Bag to give away! Aaron was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes back in 2009 and is planning on riding in the Tour de Cure: Atlanta real soon. Since I couldn’t give Aaron a bag I decided to make another donation to his American Diabetes Association Tour de Cure effort. If you click on this link you can help him as well! My father has diabetes and the complications from the disease are enormous—one of the reasons I took up cycling was because I thought it would help keep me from getting this disease.

    Thank you very much, that was very kind and generous and much more than you were required to do. You are truly an awesome individual.
