Battle for Fort Washington: 2014 Prizes!

By on August 15, 2014

Heading into the finale of our Battle for Fort Washington race/clinic series, we are very excited to announce the full prize list.  All of our supporters have been extremely generous, and there is quite a bit up for grabs among our newer racers.

Weekly Prizes

Each week, the outright winner of each of our three fields—the B, Women’s and A races—has and will receive a $20 gift card to Winnie’s LeBus Manayunk. Serving breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner, Winnie’s offers fresh, local food in the heart of Manayunk.


In addition, each week the top rider by points in each of the Women’s 4 and 3 as well as the Men’s 5, 4, and 3 categories wins a $10 gift card to Human Zoom Bikes and Boards. Located in Ardmore and Manayunk, Human Zoom caters to all boarders and cyclists, with the knowledge and experience to help with your child’s first two-wheeler, a good hybrid for around town, or your dream bike.



The second highest scoring rider in each of those same categories each week wins a full-size water bottle, courtesy Fuji Bikes. We will also be giving out a number of water bottles to first timers, clinic quiz volunteers, and others. Fuji Bikes manufactures a comprehensive lineup of bicycles, and like you believes that great challenges are great opportunities to triumph.


Series Participation

At the conclusion of the series, in each of the Women’s 3/4, Men’s 5, and Men’s 4 categories we will be randomly awarding, weighted by participation across the series, a Big Tuneup package from Philadelphia Bikesmith, a full overhaul to follow up a hard summer of riding and prep for fall training. Having recently celebrated their first year in business but with deep roots in the Philadelphia cycling community, Philadelphia Bikesmith offers equipment, service, and expert bicycle fits for everybody from the newest commuter to the most diehard Ironman competitor.


Series Prizes

In addition to volunteering to lead the coaching and clinics for the series, Breakaway Bikes has generously donated series prizes to our top beginners that will supercharge their 2015 season. Based on total points won across the three events, we are very excited to award:

In addition to world class equipment sales and bike service, Breakaway offers expert bicycle fits, coaching programs for all ability levels, training camps in a number of exciting locations, and in-house group workout sessions.
