If you phone has a web browser, use the mobile website (m.singletracks.com) for bonus points. The only thing you can't do with the mobile website is upload photos.


lol, my phone only texts and takes photos. Can barely call...it usually over heats on that. I spend the little money I have on sports and camera gear and plants. So everything else I own is pretty crap.

So are the results in? Not that I got my hopes up, but I managed to add a couple trails.

The results are in!

Grand prize: Stl_Greaser
Second prize: Ginny_Tory
Third prize: Jared13

All three top contributors were separated by just 20 points. And I suspect Ginny_Tory was purposely holding back b/c she knew we couldn't send the bike to New Zealand. :)

Thanks to all who participated!

The great thing about such a contest is nobody comes away empty handed. We all got out and rode some new singletrack--You can't beat that! :D

Haha. Actually I as purposely aiming for 2nd cause I needed mtb shoes. "Forget the bike, I WANT THE SHOES!" Probably one of the girl-y-est things I've done yet.
I still have US addresses in Jersey and Boston, just not personally back there to pick it up.

Had I placed second, I was going to PM you to see if you wanted to switch prizes. :lol:

I am excited to get a dedicated commuter bike for sure, but I just had fun riding and build some new singletrack for the contest. It's contests like these that are most rewarding for all that enter because we will all reap the benifits for years to come with all of the new data on the site! And you better believe the Raliegh will be decked out in Singletracks stickers!!!

LOL! Man, all three of us could have saved a lot of trouble, haha. But it was all good fun. Yeah, I already have a wonderful hydropack and an idiotic phone so the 3rd prize wouldn't be very useful. And I didn't want the bike and I'm out of closet space for bikes anyways.

Luckily I was SUPER lazy, procrastinating on entering all the tracks I hunted down and a lot of photos I took for the site...so this contest was good in that it was a good incentive to dump all my information and clear my to-do list.
