Beginning Thursday morning, May 1, we’ll be selling raffle tickets before and after school outside the Harding gate on Ashbury Ave. Tickets are $2 each. You can also buy tickets on the day of the ReCycle right up until the 12pm drawing.
Here’s Raleigh’s stock image of the bike being raffled, a Raleigh Rowdy (more details below).
This is the exact color of the bike being raffled. It has 20″ wheels and six speeds. It’s a great first bike with gears for a boy or girl between the ages of 4 and 8. Since it has a freewheel cassette, which means that the pedals can spin in the backward direction unlike a bike with a coaster brake, the rider needs to become comfortable with using handbrakes.
Remember, even if you don’t have a rider in your family who is the right size for this bike, buy your raffle tickets and if you win you’ll be able to trade the bike for $200 credit towards the bike of your choice, or other merchandise, at Blue Heron Bikes. And if you already bought one of our refurbished bikes earlier in the day only to win the raffle at noon, we’ll give you your money back on the bike you already bought.
