Freesurf, Vans Triple Crown of Surfing and BIKEFACTORY have teamed up to create Pedal Power, a new way to commute to school this season! Pedal Power is a campaign designed to encourage kids around the North Shore, and beyond, to ride their bike to school – since we all know how crowded Kamehameha Highway can get during the winter months. Plus, riding a bike to school promotes an active and healthy lifestyle, which is why we urge parents to ride with their keiki each day, or create a bike group for kids and their friends to bike to school together.
In step with the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing’s stewardship initiative to give the world’s top ranked surfers bicycles for the winter, Pedal Power is teaming up with VTCS for weekly prize packs and BIKEFACTORY for grand prizes at the end of the 4-week campaign. Beginning on Monday, November 10th and lasting till December 8th, the schools participating in Pedal Power will announce prize pack winners on a weekly basis and three grand prize winners at the end. The grand prizes given out will be brand new bikes from BIKEFACTORY which include a 20” Electra Betty model and a 20” Rat Rod model (both include a cushy saddle, easy-to-use coaster brakes and Electra’s Flat Foot Technology) and a 24” Boys Electra Cruiser (classic steel frame, comfy seat, wide bars, easy-rolling aluminum wheels, and plush whitewall tires). Grand prize winners will own the neighborhood on these Electra kid’s cruisers!
The schools participating include Waialua, Laie and Sunset Elementary. All participants will have their name automatically entered in the weekly raffle for a VTCS prize pack, which will be announced at each school. All participants will also have their name entered in the grand prize raffle, which will be announced at the end of the campaign through each school as well.
Pedal Power is brought to you by Vans Triple Crown of Surfing, BIKEFACTORY and Freesurf, in an effort to encourage a healthful lifestyle. We hope this positive program will inspire more schools in other neighborhoods to do the same, and reduce each community’s carbon footprint. Let’s work together toward a greener future for the North Shore and beyond!
