Pedal and Play in Paradise

Build a Bike, Win a Bike – A Pedal & Play in Paradise Alternative

March, 2021

Tired of just sitting around?  Bored with your rides? Do you feel unsafe gathering for bicycle events? Would you like a chance to win a “Townie” bicycle and other prizes?


This adventure is for you!

Due to the pandemic, we at TEAM have decided to design a slightly different bicycle event this year. 

Build a Bike, Win a Bike offers cyclists the opportunity to ride bikes to seven sites between March 1 and March 15. Participants use clues to identify seven Punta Gorda area sites where they will find bicycle parts. Riders will record on their entry form the names of the bike parts and their location. The goal of “Build a Bike” will be reached when all seven bike parts have been found.

Once all seven sites have been visited and the bike parts identified, the completed entry form will be dropped off in a secure mailbox outside the TEAM PG offices, 227 Sullivan Street in Punta Gorda.

Come see me at Acme Bicycle 615 Cross St, Punta Gorda

A Zoom drawing will be conducted by TEAM volunteers at noon on March 19 at which entries will be drawn and winners announced. Winners need not attend Zoom drawing to win. First prize is a “Townie” bicycle which can be seen at ACME Bicycle, 615 Cross St, Punta Gorda.  Other prizes include electric bike rentals from Pedelec in Punta Gorda.

Thanks to Build a Bike, Win a Bike sponsors, ACME Bicycle, Charlotte Community Foundation and Pedelec.

Registration: $20. Registration closes March 8.
