Announcing The Winners: Reveal Your Path Post Card Contest

Today we're pleased to announce the winners in our Reveal Your Path Post Card Contest.

This was the first time we'd ever put on a larger contest and we certainly have had some fun and learned a bunch through the process. We looked at, read through, re-looked at, re-read all the entries and then the 'postcard judging society' got down to it, and started sifting the proverbial 'wheat from the chaff'.

Really what we found was not that much chaff, but a whole host of interesting entries. Some made us laugh, some made us say 'wow', and others just made us think. We received drawings, collages, hand-stitched designs, photographs, cartoons, and even a tin sign. We'll be sharing more of those entries in the coming weeks.

We thank you for giving us insight into what both bikes and adventure contribute to your lives...and in such colorful and creative fashion!

This contest didn't really have 'places' so I'm just going to call out a few folks, and then announce the winner of the biggest prize, the 2013 Fargo Frameset. You can see all the winners and what they won here on the contest site.

The folks below are getting something extra because their entries struck a special chord with us (for varying reasons). In addition to the prize awarded on the contest site, they'll also each receive a limited edition Salsa print done by Minneapolis artist Adam Turman. Those 18 lucky winners are:

Rickey & Angela Crum of Garland, Texas
Nicholas Hardrath of Shorewood, Wisconsin
Matt Dunkerly of Boulder, Colorado
JP Wares of Athens, Georgia
Jill Martindale of Grand Rapids, Michigan
Kevin Herman of Northfield, Minnesota
Andrew Howell Robertson of Brookings, South Dakota
Brent Irish of Davenport, Iowa
Corinna Lee Manion of Bloomington, Indiana
Eric Benjamin of Emporia, Kansas
Dustin Eagen of Bloomington, Indiana
Evan Holmstrom of Missoula, Montana
Everett Henderson JR of Gainesville, Florida
Greg Schauble of Spokane, Washington
Heather Brewer of Muskegon, Michigan
Jason Asselin of Devils Lake, North Dakota
Mark Youngdale of Minneapolis, Minnesota
Ryan Kalams of Davis, California

With that, I'm also pleased to announce the winner of the 2013 Fargo Frameset: Evan Holmstrom of Missoula, Montana



Evan submitted this beautiful ink and watercolor drawing/painting filled with subtleties and the following message:

"It wasn't my style. It didn't quite fit. Heck, it wasn't even mine. Borrowed! But, it was a bike all the same, and it carried me through areas left unexplored since I was a wee one. It provided me with a reference point, allowed me to perceive the changes both within myself and without. It revealed to me that in the towns or in the hills, adventure is a state of mind. But a bike sure helps."

Congratulations Evan!

Winners...please be patient. We'll be in contact to sort out sizes and such and will then send you your prizes. Congratulations to each of you, and thank you for taking part in the Reveal Your Path Post Card Contest.

And remember, the Reveal Your Path Video Contest is running now! See the rules here! Truly fantastic prizes await some lucky winners!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Mike Riemer

I love being outside. I prefer to ride on dirt. Or snow. If I was born a hundred years earlier I might have been a polar explorer. There's a great natural world out there to see, smell, taste, listen to, and experience. Life slows down out there and the distractions we've created will disappear if you let them. Give me a backpack and let me go.

A compliment is something like a kiss through a veil.

Candice | November 17th, 2012

A pair of powerful spectacles has sometimes sufficed to cure a person in love.

Mattie | November 17th, 2012

Men kick friendship around like a football, but it doesn’t seem to crack. Women treat it like glass and it goes to pieces.

Virgil | November 17th, 2012

She is a friend of mind. She gather me, man. The pieces I am,
she gather them and give them back to me in all the right order.
It’s good, you know, when you got a woman who is a friend of your mind.

Collette | November 17th, 2012

We’re born alone, we live alone, we die alone. Only through our love and friendship can we create the illusion for the moment that we’re not alone.

Lace Tights | November 17th, 2012

Love is blind; friendship closes its eyes.

Charles | November 17th, 2012

Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed
is always to try just one more time.

Mikki | November 17th, 2012

Men must live and create. Live to the point of tears.

Drawing on my fine command of the English language, I said nothing.

Angelo | November 17th, 2012

Life is something to do when you can’t get to sleep.

Jerome | November 17th, 2012

I’m a misplaced American, but don’t know where I was misplaced.

Cassandra | November 17th, 2012

I am prepared for the worst, but hope for the best.

Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you
with their ingenuity.

Alfie | November 21st, 2012

I like long walks, especially when they are taken by people who annoy me.

A friendship founded on business is better than a business founded on friendship.
