We’re thrilled to announce the grand prize winner of our social media photo contest. Melissa Wonders of Santa Rosa has won a Bontrager Flare R Tail Light, an overnight stay for two at Hotel Paradox in Santa Cruz, two rental bikes of choice from Epicenter Cycling, a guided MTB ride for two with The Ride Guides, AND dinner in Santa Cruz with Keith Bontrager himself. Melissa’s fun photo and perfect caption hit all the right notes – congratulations, Melissa!

We received a vast array of great shots to choose from, and thank everyone who participated in the contest. Hot on Melissa’s heels was Bob Ward of Santa Fe, New Mexico, whose images of trail riding at sunset with his canine friend are positively breathtaking … so much so, that we have a special prize package for Bob, and of course nine lucky contestants win the Flare R Tail Light! We’ll be contacting these winners individually … so if you posted a photo, stay tuned.

Ride on and ride safe!
