The Great Bike Giveaway 2014 - The Contest Winners

In March 2014, Buddy Bike participated in the 3rd Annual Great Bike Giveaway sponsored by The Friendship Circle of Michigan, a non-profit organization that provides programs and support to the families of individuals with special needs. The Friendship Circle created the Great Bike Giveaway to give adaptive bikes to as many special children as possible and to offer them the same freedom, confidence and pride that everyone feels when the ride a bike for the first time.

For the third consecutive year, Buddy Bike joined other adaptive bicycle manufacturers such as AMBUCS, Flaghouse, Freedom Concepts, Mobo Cruiser, Rifton, Strider and Triaid to support the contest. Buddy Bike donated two of their alternative tandems but a total of THIRTEEN Buddy Bikes were given away due to fundraising in the online social media contest.

When asked if Buddy Bike would participate in the Great Bike Giveaway in 2015, Shelley L. Patterson, Director of Marketing & Business Development at Buddy Bike replied, “Absolutely! I was shocked at the growth of the contest this year. Thanks to the generous donors, we were able to give away thirteen bikes to special families. The contest helps our small business while allowing us to give bikes to the people who need them. We will definitely continue to support The Friendship Circle and The Great Bike Giveaway."

Contest Winner 5: Newton Miller

"Newt and his family thank all of the folks who donated funds toward Buddy Bikes in the Great Bike Giveaway! Autism has made solo-cycling not logical, but now thanks to the Buddy Bike, he can enjoy the feeling of rolling down the road. On our inaugural ride, he was so happy (while being simultaneously tentative)! Thank you for giving him this. It's more than a bike; it's increased independence, pure joy, and family togetherness."

Contest Winner 13: Connor Berens

"I just wanted to send you a quick note and let you know that we picked up Connors bike yesterday. The bike that he won in The Great Bike Giveaway is great! The ride is so smooth and the seat and peddles and handle bars are in perfect position. We had a lot of fun riding around our neighborhood. Connor isn't a big fan of peddling, he hasn't had to do it much in the past, so we need to get something to secure his feet to the peddles but so far it's great. His sister and I took it out for a spin too. Thank you so much!"
