A few weeks ago a cycling friend sent me a link to the Trek website with a note saying 'You should do this!'. Intrigued I clicked on the link. As you can see in the screenshot below, I had one option.
The offer was laid out on a simple, easy to read page. Trek was going to select 5 women to share their riding experiences. In exchange they'd receive Trek bikes and gear.
From the website "If you're chosen as a winner, you'll be asked to share your riding experiences through online diary entries, videos and photos. You'll need to keep a daily log and provide weekly web updates".
As an avid cyclist, amateur photographer, regular blogger, and occasional video creator I was VERY interested in this offer.
You can imagine how disappointed I was to read point 5 in the requirements.
Trek scored big points with me for reaching out to the cycling community. Too bad it was executed so poorly on the website. Oh well, the weather is warming up and my Specialized bike is back from its Spring tune-up. It's time to hit the road.
