Bike Benefits Bingo Kicks Off in Charlotte
Use pedal power to collect awesome prizes around Charlotte
If you have a bike, enjoy cruising around Charlotte and earning prizes while you do it, Charlotte Bike Benefits Bingo has your name written all over it.
Starting April 26 through May 31, a bike, a Bike Benefits Bingo card, and a list of places to collect stamps is all you’ll need to kick off the spring and enjoy a fun adventure. Here’s how it works.
- Pick up Bingo cards at any Bike Benefit business located on the Bingo card or at special events such as the Mayor’s Ride and Open Streets 704. Cards are $2 each or $1 with a Bike Benefits sticker.
- Register your card here.
- With Bingo card in hand and pedal power at the ready you have five weeks – April 26 through May 31 – to cruise around the area, attend rides, events and visit businesses on the Bingo card to get it stamped. No purchase is necessary.
- Receive five stamps in a row or fill the entire card and win prizes (which must be collected by – you guessed it – bike).
Participating businesses include Nothing Bunt Cakes, Brixx on East Blvd., Salon 1226, Rhino Market, Common Market, and more.
Riders can also pick up stamps at local events or volunteer at a bike event or store.
With every successful “Bingo,” you can collect a free pizza, gift cards, free sandwiches, sweet treats, or other prizes. Find Pam on her bike and get the center spot filled with a red stamp!
Need some extra practice? Take your bike to the Greenway.
