The Walk + Bike Day Winner of the Zigo- Tonie!

Two weeks before the Bike Day Celebration we got one of the first Zigo bikes to hit the market. I put it together in time to give it away to the winner from the October Walk + Bike to School Day volunteer raffle.

The Bike Day event was a great success and even though our raffle winner had to work through it she came at the end to pick up her awesome prize.

Tonie Q. was excited to try out her new wheels and we look forward to hearing how it works for her. The Zigo seems to be a great vehicle for families wanting to bike their kids to school.

Zigo wants to get one up to Portland next so they are offering a 40% Discount for the first person in Portland to buy one from their Online Store using the Coupon Code: portland.

The school year is coming to end but the Eugene SRTS program will continue to work, finishing up a new website, working on the education program, firming and building on current projects, celebrating the Blackberry Jamboree family ride, Kidical Mass rides, and more!

We'll also be moving this blog to the new site soon so stay tuned!
