We’re excited about spring – excited to be riding in the sun, without arm warmers, on ground that isn’t waterlogged. We’re super chuffed to be out on our bikes past six o’clock with the sun still in the sky… and we expect all of you guys are just as pleased.
To celebrate the arrival of spring, and help you guys get out and riding, we’ll be hiding 50 surprises across the country – one near each of our stores. Over the course of the next three weeks, we’ll release clues on our Facebook page. Clues will be added daily to this photo album from Tuesday 18th March.
Each prize will be represented by a slip, like this:
You’ll find the slip buried in the ground, beneath an “#EvansEarlybird” marker, like this one, which Sir Chris Hoy buried for us (this one is an example… so don’t go hunting for it if you recognize the park!):
The prizes include a HOY bike (the winner can choose between a Shizuoka 001 and a Sa Calobra 001), to a GoPro Hero3+ Black, to a £100 voucher, to Park Tool Tyre Levers and a Park Tool Patch kit – it really is a lucky draw.
