)-- Electric bike manufacturer OHM Cycles is giving bike commuters and enthusiasts the chance to win an award-winning bike accessory. The prize – one Burley Travoy Bike Trailer – makes bikes capable of hauling and transporting everything from a week’s worth of groceries to up to 60 lb. of cargo.
Open to all Canadian and US residents aged 19 and up, the contest will run until July 15. Entering involves “liking” the OHM Cycles Facebook page and entering an email address to subscribe to the OHM Cycles’ online newsletter. After entering, fans who get their friends to enter the contest earn two additional entries to win the trailer. The contest can be accessed at http://www.facebook.com/ohmcycles/app_143103275748075
“The Burley Travoy is a great addition to any bike it is attached to, but it works especially well when it’s hitched to one of our electric commuter models,” says OHM Cycles CEO Michael DeVisser. “The electric assist from our BionX motor makes heavy loads feel much lighter, so cyclists can ride faster and with less effort than with a normal bike. The Travoy is like an attachable car trunk.”
OHM’s hybrid electric bicycles come in three models: an electric commuter bike, a special edition electric commuter bike, and an electric mountain bike. Riders control the amount of assistance they get from their bikes.
The Burley Travoy Trailer comes with a basic cargo bag, a hitch assembly, and tie-down straps for bulky cargo. Additional bags and accessories can also be purchased.
