Schwinn Bike Giveaway

Life’s A Ride. Enjoy It On A Schwinn.

Hold onto your seat folks… cause here comes a giveaway for chance to win a Schwinn prize package including a Schwinn Admiral Women’s Bike for one US winner!  Schwinn Bicycles wants you to get out there, ride a bike and enjoy the outdoors and life and that is a mission I can get behind.

Bikes are amazing.  I mean each of us remembers the challenge and the joy of learning to ride a bike, right?  I used to spend summers cruising around on my bike when I was little and I loved it.  I loved the way the wind cooled me off of hot days and I loved the way the exercise made me feel invigorated in the fall.  Bikes were the first big gift each of my children received from us as a birthday present.  Bike riding is a great family activity.

This 30 second little clip captures just how much bikes can mean in a cute way!

Whether you are trying to get into shape, go green, or just have fun, bikes rock!

  1. Maureen says

    It would be another form of exercise for me. I would be able to take this to the grocery store or other places where I only needed a few items instead of the car.

  2. Sabrina says

    We just moved to a new area that has a lot of bike trails. I would LOVE to be able to ride on these trails to explore the new area and get some much needed exercise too!!!

  3. Amber L. says

    Going on bike rides with the family in the evenings after dinner

    appetizerforacraftymind(at)yahoo(dot)com

  4. says

    I would use it to ride from one place to another on the farm. I use DH’s bike now, and put the baby seat on it for LO, but it’d be nice to have my own! :)

  5. nancy horton says

    My current bike is broken. I would get back on my exercise regimen so I can enter a charitable event and ride for a cause so that the bike wouldn’t just benefit me but maybe someone else in my community

  6. Betty Baez says

    i was just recently telling hubby how i would love a bike to ride around the neighborhood i miss riding i use to ride 6 miles a day when i was younger

    I would bike to work and back since I only live 2 miles away! Too far to walk in the mornings but a quick and healthy bike ride to my office! Thanks as I am in the need of a bike!

  8. Ray says

    My daughter would love this to bike around town in doing errands, meeting friends and going to work too this summer. She would love this gorgeous Schwinn bike! Thanks!

  9. Cassie T says

    I would use it to ride down to the store, exercise more, and around the house to enjoy the outdoors. I have always loved Schwinn bikes, yet could never ever afford one.

    • says

      Oh, this is perfect for a present for my brother. I want this exercise bike so I wish I will win on this giveaway. If ever not I will just purchase this one.

  10. ellen says

    If I won, I would ride it on the bike trails here and add a basket to get a few groceries or run errands with it!

  11. Shelbie Johnston says

    I would love to have a bike so I can take bike rides with my Grandson, plus I need the exercise :)

  12. Georgiana says

    We just moved into our new home and my old bike didn’t survive the cross-country move! So I’m in desperate need of a new set of wheels and this is a gorgeous bike! Thanks so much!

  13. Stephanie says

    Would love to have a great bike…not had one since I was a kid! I could go bike riding w/ my 6 year old!

  14. ShellyP says

    I’d love to start biking with my kids. I do everything else except bike ride. My little boy pointed it out the other day. It would help me get in better shape as well.

  15. says

    I’m about ready to have my first child and a bike would be a wonderful way to get back into shape and shed some of this baby weight. I follow you via Google Plus. Great giveaway!

  16. PATRICIA BOOTH says

    Lost my bike when we moved 6 years ago. Would love to go riding again and get back in shape as I lose the weight!

  17. INES SAFTIC says

    Start biking like they do it in Amsterdam. Really enjoyed it while I was there. Its just so nice to see how many people bike on daily basis.. and use it way more then cars.
    You do it for fun in the nature, you do it to run errands.. you enjoy the weather and get exercise. Its a really nice bike by the way!
    I would definitely ride this bike with pride and joy. :) Nice nice bike! Like the white and red color also.

  18. Debbie Welchert says

    We have a bike trail across the street from my house and I would love to start riding a bike with my grandkids.

  19. Miran says

    I hope I win this! I just recently started college and NEED a bike to get around. It would also be great to take my dog out and ride to get some exercise! Super cute bike!

  20. Tammy says

    Hello! I’d love to enter this giveaway. I’d enjoy this bike by riding it around my town to reduce my carbon footprint on the Earth, because that’s very important to me. I would also gain from the cardio exercise.

  21. Peter Schott says

    I’d give this to my wife so we could all bike together. She’s been wanting a bike for a while now.

  22. RLS says

    Biking is the best way to get around. I’d ride mine to work, to the market, to the beach, and just for the fun of it!

  23. Celeste says

    We have a lot of really nice bike trails near where we live, it would be so nice to take this bike out for some exercise and enjoy the scenery at the same time!

  24. says

    Actually, would love this bike for my niece, she recently broke her bike and needs a new one. We would have a blast riding our county Greenway with all the kids to finish out the Summer!

  25. Chris says

    I’d give it to my wife. I ride a Schwinn around NYC and have a great kids seat hooked to the back, but my wife does not ride and has no way to join us. This would be a great way for us to get to the park or around town on weekends. Especially since my bike is our car. It’s the perfect thing for us.

  26. says

    We love taking family bike rides, but my bicycle is very old, and this one looks beautiful. I would use it all the time if I won. Thank you for the giveaway!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  27. Kelly Nicholson says

  29. samantha says

    I live in NYC and subway fares keep increasing. I would love to have this bike and bike anywhere! I especially love biking by the river to relieve tensions

  30. Brittany says

    I just moved to Princeton, NJ where bike riding is the best way to get around! Plus I would love to enjoy it in all the beautiful parks in the area.

  31. Nicole T says

    My husband is currently deployed, but we really want to get bikes so we can ride as a family with our 2 boys once he gets back!!

  32. Irene Menge says

    Since my vehicle died in April, I’ve had to walk everywhere. The 1 mile round trip hike through the woods to the supermarket isn’t a bad walk, but carrying the groceries back can be tiring. I’m 64. I’d ride the bike to the supermarket, the bus stop, the park and the flea market. All the places I used to go and now cannot. And on those days that I don’t need to go anywhere, I just ride it for exercise. I hate being trapped.

  33. Jorge Lopez says

    If I won I would give it to my wife as a present. She hasn’t had a bike since she was a little kid :-)

  34. Angela G says

    There are tons of local trails I’ve been meaning to try. Would be a great way to stay in shape! Thank you for the giveaway.

  35. says

    Hello, I would love this when vacationing at a much loved shore town in NJ. The perfect bike in the perfect location. Thanks for a great giveaway!

  36. Nancy B says

    With a bike me and my kids could all ride around the neighborhood together. Not only is it good exercise, but a great way to spend some fun time with my kids.

  37. Maureen Ciesla says

    I just retired and would love to start riding a bike for both exploring, transportaion and excerise. This is the style of bicyle I would enjoy best.

  38. Erica says

    I’d enjoy this bike by… riding it! It would be great to be able to get around town without having to take my car. The lack of sidewalks make it unsafe to walk, and there’s no public transportation. A bike would be the perfect solution.

  39. LC says

    I was 9 when I got my first hand me down bike. I don’t remember what exactly happened to it, but I do know I haven’t ridden or owned a bike ever since. Now its my sons turn learning with his new bike and I want to encourage and set a good example for him.

  40. fawn says

    Oh, wow! I’d love to win. I’d use it to get to and from work – and pretty much anywhere else I might need to go. My current bike is the shambles. :)

  41. Harold D says

    We just moved to a new neighborhood and would enjoy using the bike to “explore” the area. It would be great.

  42. Molly L says

    I live in a bike-friendly town. We have bike lanes on all of our major streets and we’re working toward having EVERY street be bike-friendly (and every sidewalk being wheelchair-friendly) within the next few years. I live within walking distance of some things, but within biking distance of a LOT. I would definitely make good use of a bike!

  43. Alisha Hodges says

    I would use the bike to ride on the bike trails near where I live, and I would hook a baby cart to the back and take my baby with me.

  44. Valerie Furr says

    They are putting bike and golf cart trails all over our town and this would be great I could ride everywhere instead of wasting gas. Thanks.

  45. Annalisa D. says

    I would finally be able to stop borrowing my family member’s bikes every time I want to go riding!

  46. Sarah says

    I would enjoy the bike on the local bike trails I’ve been wanting to try out! Thanks for the chance to win this awesome giveaway!

  47. gerri ward says

    Riding is the most scenic exercise especially out in the country~ This would be the perfect bike to take in the views.

  48. Margot C says

    It would be so great to have a true ‘ladies bike’ to ride to the store or over the the farmer’s market. All I have is a mountain bike (belonged to my son, doesn’t fit me really), and it’s just too heavy and clunky. The up-right seating position on this bike is more my style and probably safer on a city street for me. Plus the look of the bike is so charming and stylish.

  49. Renee S says

    I would love to have this bike to really “bike” to work! My job is 1.5 miles from my home and this would be a great way to get some fresh air and exercise twice a day! Thanks so much!

  50. Crystal Renee says

    I would ride it into town all of the time, and ride it on the paved trails at the parks.

  51. Katy M says

    I’ve been looking for a bike that I can ride to the beach (less than a mile from our home)!

  54. Liz Kochi says

    I’d love to win this bike. It would help me get back into shape after having my children and we’d also be able to share bike riding as a fun , healthy activity.

  55. Dave Deates says

    I really need to start an exercising program and this would be just the thing to motovate me to get it going.

  56. Laureen says

    I would enjoy the bike for rides in town for pleasure, for exercise and to run errands to avoid using the car.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  57. Colleen M. says

    I would use this bike to ride to work and to the grocery store so that I could use my car less often.

  58. Rochelle Dyer says

    Out of everyone in my family (4 children and husband), I am the only one without a bike :( If I won this bike, it would give us the opportunity to go on family bike rides. Please pick me!!

  59. Niki Patterson says

    I am 43 and would love to finally learn to ride a bike to help lose weght. This bike would be awesome.

  60. rachel b. says

  64. alyson naranjo says

    I would love to give my 13 year old daughter her first new bike & then ride along the beach path with her at Hermosa beach.

  65. says

    I would give this to my little sister as her HS grad present next spring, she’s always wanted a vintage looking bike and having one at school would help her save money on gas and be a little healthier! win-win! Plus I just love her so I’d love to make her happy!

  66. Hannah Allen says

    I would love a bike! schwinn is such a great company.
    I did 3 out of the 5 things that needed to be done.
    so… fingers crossed :)

  67. Laela Tec says

    I would love this bike to ride on the trail behind my house 😀 I have an awesome scenic route but I have no bike to ride. Awesome way to stay in shape 😀

  68. nichole delgado says

    I did 1, 2 and 5
    If I won this bike I would use it every day. I think the style of it is really cool. I would take it for a ride in the mornings for a daily workout. It would also be fun to join my friends through a stroll around town with it.

  69. @nola727 says

    I’ve never owned a bike as an adult. I would like to start biking in the park and really get into shape. Thanks for the chance to win.

  70. Kathy S says

    I haven’t had a bike since I was a child. This would be great to get in shape for my son’s wedding next summer.

  71. Pamela says

    I love riding. It’s my “get outside nature therapy.” Without riding my bike, well, life would be boring. Since I don’t have a bike at the moment, I would greatly appreciate new wheels.

  72. says

    I would enjoy riding my bike passionately every single day with my kids or by myself. It gives me such a peace of tranquility and time to use all of my senses as I journey on my bike, it is soo much fun to me, someone stole mine, and I feel a longing for that sublime feeling I get when I ride my bike. There is so much to see that you don’t when you drive all the time and enjoy so many things you wouldn’t if not riding a bike. And it is the one thing that gives me this exhilirating sense of fun and freedom and youthfulness I will never outgrow.

  73. nadia says

    My city just added new bike paths right in front of our house and I’d love to finally learn how to ride a bike to be able to take advantage of them!

  74. kathy dunaway says

    I would ride with my family.We have some great trails in our county.It would be a fun way to get in some family time.

  75. Katharine D says

    I would enjoy riding in the park with my kids, and sometimes at night after they are asleep – great exercise

  76. julie s says

    i just got married last year, and have a ten-year old stepson. i’d like to be able to use my new schwinn bike to plan bike rides with him!

  77. Emily Senski says

    Winning a new Schwinn bike would be SO rewarding in some many ways. Being able to cruise down my neighborhood on a new Schwinn would help me stay in shape while looking fashionably retro! Not only will I enjoy the conveniency of this brand new hip set of wheels, but I will also be extremely grateful to ride around in a Schwinn :)!

  78. Angie says

    I am transferring to San Francisco State University this Fall, and I’ve had to sell my car to make the move, so I would definitely ride my bike to school and work when I find a job. It’ll also really help me get in shape-even though as my sister likes to say, round is a shape ; )

  79. NancyM says

    The first bike I had was one my mother purchased at a yard sale for my sister and I to share. That was back when bike ownership didn’t come so easy so the anticipation of possession was great. Winning would, of course, provoke me to share with my sister again.

  80. Nikki Reed says

    It would be amazing to win this because my husband just bought a bike for himself. Since then, we’ve talked about how nice it would be to go on a “date” just riding bikes together. But, alas, I don’t have one. Maybe??? :)

  81. Vee says

    I would use it to get outside more (I spend way too much time inside) and take it with me to trips /vacations. Ty for the giveaway :)

  82. says

    I Would the 23 inch women bike because I have a bad leg and I would be able to lift my leg over and ride. If any higher I wouldn’t be able to ride. I still don’t know if could do it with the 23 inch bike. I haave to try cause I want to ride,ride like the wind.

  83. Dorothy Campbell says

    I would love to add biking to my activities, and living in Asheville, NC surrounded by the blue ridge/smoky mountains would make the exercise enjoyable.

  84. julia d says

    Having a bike would be great exercise and an energy saving way to go the nearby mall for shopping or a movie.

  85. says

    This would be a dream come true! I can’t exercise by walking or running (phlebitis flares) and would be able to exercise on this fantastic bike! Thanks for a chance to win and have a great day!

  86. Laura Jacobson says

    Oh we dont have a bike, but got a buggy pull behind for Carter to sit in from a relative. Just need a bike, but just cannot afford it right now. I know Carter would love to go for bike rides, and it would be a great weight loss tool to stay fit and healthy. This would be great as we try to go to a healthier lifestyle!

  87. Stacey P says

    I would love to have a bicycle again, not only for exercise but also the sheer enjoyment of riding, coasting, and that flying feeling.

  95. Jennifer M says

    I would ride on our local towpath trails all autumn long to enjoy the crisp fall weather and the changing of the leaves!

  102. Sarah says

    My wonderful parents bought me a Schwinn bike for my 21st birthday 2 years ago so I could ride it around at my University. But a few months later it was stolen off a bike rack next to our gym. So I went from two wheels back to two feet. I would love a new bike to replace the one that got stolen! I miss my bike terribly, and Schwinn’s are awesome! :)

  103. says

    I would enjoy this bike as a form of exercise and an aid in my weight loss journey. i also plan on purchasing bikes, bike trailers for the whole family so we can go on bike rides together. i was planning this, whether I win or not.
