Win a FREE Mountain Bike, and/or $100 CASH!

Here at GregRidesTrails, I always try to have the best interests of YOU, the readers, in mind.  I strive to write content that will hopefully provide you with quality information, or teach you something.  Also, whenever the opportunity presents itself, I love to hook ya'll up with information on how to win FREE STUFF!  Now, what could be better than the opportunity to win a Giant Trance X1 Mountain Bike?

Yes, YOU have the opportunity to win a FREE mountain bike by clicking on this link and filling out the form. This giveaway is being provided courtesy of the awesome guys over at Michelin. In case you didn't already know, Michelin offers a full line up of bicycle tires, spanning the spectrum from road racing to downhill mountain biking.  So thanks to them for this free mountain bike!

There is a deadline.  If you look at the small print at the bottom of the image, it says the contest ends on July 31.  That's in two (2) days!  So if you are going to register to win this, get on it RIGHT NOW!

That's Not All
I bet there are going to be a lot of people registering to win this mountain bike.  That shouldn't deter you from trying, because honestly, how awesome would it be to get that package in the mail? 

So as an added bonus to go along with this offer, one of you readers here on is definitely going to win a FREE $100 American Express Gift Card!  $100 is still an awesome prize (and you have a lot better chance of winning it), and is worthy of a small competition!

Here's what you have to do:
Submit the best picture that you have of you (or someone you know) mountain biking.  (1 submission per person).

It doesn't have to be a recent photo, it doesn't even have to be all that great.... but submit it by either posting a link or embedding it in the comments section below, or by emailing it to g.gaheil AT gmail DOT com. If you leave it in the comments section below, be sure to leave your email so that I can get ahold of you if you win!  I will be accepting picture submissions from now through 11:59 pm Sunday night, August 1st.  Yes, that means you have one more day to get your picture in to me than you do to register to win the mountain bike. 

I will be choosing the best picture from those submitted, and you'll receive $100! Big air, shear gnarliness factor, great scenery, or artistic composition could all go towards helping your picture be the best.

Also, please don't cheat and grab a picture off of the internet.  Karma, God's wrath, or something similar WILL catch up with you!

Your Turn:  Enter to win that mountain bike, and submit a photo to win $100!

Awesome man! I registered for the bike. I need to go through all my bike pics now!

Can I submit multiple pics? If I win I'll donate the Airborne Tshirt =)

What a great idea for a contest... I'm there! Thanks for mentioning it.

Sweet, I totally hope one of us wins the bike!

As for the photo contest, only one photo per person please. So choose wisely!

Bringing it all together:
I just entered for the Michelin Giant Trance X1, and here is me riding my 2006 Giant Trance 1 at Hidden Mesa here in Colorado!

Now if I can just win the bike AND the $100.... :D

(By the way, I tried to embed the pic, but Blogger said the img tag is not allowed)

Hey Corey,

Thanks for the submission! I didn't know that blogger wouldn't allow images at all... Hm, that's frustrating. Oh well, I've been getting submissions in my inbox, so the contest will go on regardless!

The contest has been EXTENDED another week, and more prizes have been added! If you haven't submitted a photo yet, be sure to email them to me!
