Red Lantern Bicycles
345 Myrtle Avenue @Adelphi
in Fort Green Brooklyn

Organized by Brooklyn By Bike‘s Anita – this is a special meet up that marks her blog’s 3rd anniversary and her birthday, so it’s safe to say it will be a fun event. Meet interesting & awesome bike bloggers and aficionados while getting to know Brooklyn’s latest addition to bike culture: Red Lantern a totally rad bike shop with a full cafe & soon to be opened bar. Once they get their liquor license will you ever need to go anywhere else?

To make it even more awesome Google Places & Red Lantern are throwing a special contest with the winner getting a FREE $50 gift certificate to the bike shop.

Here’s how it works:

1. Go to Google.com/Places and select “Start Rating” (you’ll need to create a Google account if you haven’t already).
2. Fill out this form by 11:59 pm on Sunday, October 2nd: http://goo.gl/ZdQTZ
3. Review as many New York City places (especially bicycle shops, cafes and/or other bike-friendly places) as you like by 11:59 pm on October 2nd. Each quality review you write will be judged as a new entry. If you’re wondering what we’re looking for in a quality review, here are a few things to consider:
– Originality – how creative or original is your review style?
– Capturing the spirit of the place – how well do you describe the atmosphere of the place?
– Unique view points – do you bring unique or different view points?
– Writing style – how well written is your review?
4. We’ll go through all the reviews you write during the contest period and give them points. The 2 entrants with the highest number of points will win a $50 gift card from Red Lantern Bicycles!
5. Winners will be notified via email on October 3rd and prizes will be handed out at our #bikenyc meetup on October 4th!

You must be 21 to enter. To read the full official rules, click here.
