BNA Ultimate Cyclist Prize Winners Announced
- by Christopher Jones
- Published: 7 March 2013
We had a fantastic response to the BNA Ultimate Cyclist Survey with 775 valid responses – and are pleased to announce the winners.
For a chance to win, participants were asked:
If you had 1 week, a bike of your choice and unlimited budget, tell us in 25 words or less what would you do?
Before sharing the winners, there was a very clear trend, most people would head over to Europe. I had to read every single answer and in judging this looked for the most interesting answers which stood out among the rest. In total there were 948 entries into this competition (with 775 valid survey responses it meant that some had incomplete survey responses though still a valid entry). Our 2010 survey has 266 responses, so this growth is wonderful in getting a larger cross section.
