If you would like to have your very own electric bicycle
are somewhat cinematographically-inclined
have access to a video camera, you might be interested in this contest being held by Ultra Motor. It's pretty simple really. Just make a video explaining why you want, (or indeed, need) an A2B Metro
for your very own, upload it to their gallery
and get your friends, family or even people you randomly meet on the bus to go and vote for you. Keep it under 3 minutes, beg, plead, perhaps use your imagination
, (or not
) and you could end up with $2,699 worth of electro-bike ready to carry you 20 miles on a charge at speeds of up to 20 mph. Being the nice folks they are, they're also giving away Timbuk2 messenger bags (worth $150!) to 3 runners-up. Contest is open to folks in all 50 states and ends May 31st.
If you don't win, you can always get one the old-fashioned way. The A2B Metro should be available at Best Buy
pretty soon. If you happen to be in San Francisco today, you can take one for a test drive
at the University of California Berkley campus beginning at 11:00 am. Good luck!
