2 More Hotel Bikes to Ride This Summer
On Friday, we showed you Five Hotel Bikes to Ride This Summer but today, we've got two more cruisers for you to check out when you check-in.
The Allegro Hotel in Chicago, a Kimpton Hotel, has partnered with the Pedal Power charity for a special "Bike This Town" package which includes deluxe accommodations, a three-hour bike reservation for two guests, picnic lunch for two, a "Bike Survival Kit" with energy bars, water, sunscreen and cyclometers as well as a $1 donation to the local Pedal Power charity, run by 12-year-old Nicole Basil which aims to refurbish used bikes and donate them to honor roll kids in Chicago's public schools.
Not down to stay at the Allegro? The package is also available at Kimpton's other Chicago hotels--Hotel Monaco, Hotel Palomar and Hotel Burnham. Mention the rate code BIKE when booking. The package is available through September 30, 2012.
Meanwhile, Element Hotels has just launched their new "I Pledge to Pedal" sweepstakes on Facebook in partnership with the colorful STRADA track bikes. Each week, prize drawings will give one participant a fully loaded STRADA bike which they can even customize online. There will be a total of 10 winners as the contest runs from today through September 17.
Here's how to enter: Become a fan of Element Hotels on Facebook and sign up under the "I Pledge to Pedal" tab. But if you're staying at an Element hotel this summer you can enter the contest via the iPads in the Element lobby and then go ride on a loaner bike for good luck. You can also check out the STRADA bike for yourself as each of the 10 Element hotels in the U.S. will be displaying their own customized bike in the lobby.
