Tired of ridiculous airline bike fees that set you back as much as $400 per round trip? Sick of dragging your bike, wheels and gear to the airport and down endless airport hallways, and then being forced to rent huge vehicles to carry the bike case to your destination?
There’s an an easier, more affordable way, and it’s Bikeflights.com.
Founder William Alcorn says, “I started Bikeflights with the goal of building a shipping service that competed with airlines on price but kicked their butts on service.” He wasn’t out to replace FedEx or UPS, but to leverage their strengths and capabilities. “No one likes flying with their bikes anymore,” Alcorn maintains.
Bikeflights.com aims to save you money and make travel easier by picking up your boxed or cased bike before your trip, and delivering it to your destination before you arrive, and based on our experience when reviewing its service, the company delivers on both promises. Transportation to and from the airport also gets a ton easier, as you don’t need to find a big vehicle to haul your svelte ride.
Bikeflights wants to handle your bike travel this cyclocross season via their shipping service, and three lucky cyclocross racers will enjoy this service without paying a dime this season. Bikeflights and Cyclocross Magazine are teaming to give three racers free round trip bike travel to CrossVegas, Gloucester or Providence this year. Suddenly, traveling to and racing these major events could get a lot more affordable and convenient. Entering just takes a minute, via the form below.
Not flying to a race this year? You could also win a prize that will help you easily transport the party or hydration to your local race. Twelve cyclocross fans will be lucky for life with the Bikeflights Bräuler. Designed to keep up to 72 ounces of your favorite beverage cold and fresh, the Bräuler is the prize that keeps giving back year after year.
Entry is easy via the new daily question below, and you can triple your chances with some easy optional social media entries and sharing. We’ll draw one winner a day for the Bräuler, and then follow that up with the three round trip Bikeflights gift certificates. Get more chances by answering our new question every day.
Contest runs from August 12 through August 26 11:59 p.m. EDT. Void where prohibited, see Terms and Conditions. USA only (although we could be convinced to give an international reader a Brauler for a nominal shipping fee).
