Win a Chance to Ride in the Oregon Manifest Field Test
The Oregon Manifest Constructor’s Design Challenge is a one-of-a-kind design/build competition, in which bespoke bike craftsman, designers, and student teams vie to create the ultimate modern utility bike – the best bike for the every day rider.
The moment of truth in the Design Challenge will be the mandatory Oregon Manifest Field Test. This rigorous 51 mile road trial will assess the real function of every bike in the challenge, in real world environments including hills, byways and off-road sections. It will include several on-road check points where mandatory features of each bike will be evaluated.
The Field Test route includes classic, scenic roads in the surrounds of Portland, and will both test the entry bikes and delight the riders. On Friday, September 23rd, Oregon Manifest will unveil this exceptional route at the Public Viewing of all entry bikes.
Want to join these riders on the field test? Simply create an account on RideOregonRide.com, submit a ride and then come back here and leave a comment with your username and the name of your ride. We’ll select two winners to win two tickets each to ride along with entrants on the Field Test and attend the special entrant-only social event on Thursday, September 22nd. Contest ends September 12th.
