Monday marks the beginning of Bike to Work Week, and next Friday is Bike to Work Day. In honor of that, Performance Bicycle has offered to give one lucky winner his or her own fitness road bike from Scattante! Exciting, isn't it?

    I would love to win this bike;
    My husband and I ride bikes once in a while and the bike I have now I gave to my grandson, he wanted a bike to ride around his neighborhood, so with him being overweight, I wanted to give him the chance to start losing weight now before it really got out of hand.
    My husband had open heart surgery last year, and I try to keep him exercising as well, so winning this bike would be great for everyone! - 9/24/2011   8:43:20 AM

    I have been looking for a bike so I can continue outdoor exercising after developing a problem with my foot and ankle which wants to give away when I walk. Feels like it will break in half at ankle. I figure biking is now my best route. - 5/19/2011   1:37:45 PM

    I want to win this bike because, living in the city, having a bike is almost an essential. I have a bike right now that is really on it's last leg (wheel?). The gears don't shift, the brakes only work on hopes and dreams, and the chain rubs against the chain guard making riding more difficult (I like to think of it as built in resistance... kind of like ALWAYS riding uphill). I want to win this bike so I can stay active on a safe bike, save money on gas (my current practice is, "if I don't NEED to drive, I won't" and I would like to keep it this way), and do my part to help keep the air just a little bit cleaner. - 5/19/2011   10:25:41 AM

    I used to bike as a kid and as a student, in fact i used to train all summer for a long ride (60 miles round trip) to the nearby park. but over the years have gotten away from it. Now living with osteoarthritis, and shrinking yearly would love to stretch my muscles on a bike. - 5/18/2011   5:23:58 PM

    I'm sure my 1976 Schwinn was a beauty in its day!But it's second life as a yard sale special is about over.I ride it almost daily and I'm scared it's going to kill me.lol. This Scattante would be fantastic! - 5/18/2011   1:27:37 PM

    As a college student with no real income to speak of, winning a bike would be amazing. I've spent the whole semester in a city where they have a velib' borrow a bike system. Cycling is an exhilarating activity that has allowed me to get out and see parts of the city I never would have found otherwise. It would be amazing if I could continue riding when I come home at the end of the month. - 5/18/2011   12:32:53 PM

    Would love to win this bike so that I could go riding with my kids. And to also start living life the healthy way. We have a very low income and do't have the money to buy me a new bike. My kids got bikes for Christmas from their grandparents. I also thank it would be good to start riding a bike for my knees. Was in a car accident 6 years ago and was crushed in between two cars. Could nt walk for 6 months. Walking and being on my knees to long starts to hurt. The doctor told me to use and excersie bike 30 min. a day for my knees. So I would really love to win. - 5/18/2011   11:43:22 AM

    I would LOVE to win this bike. I have been wanting a bike forever, but we have not been able to afford it. It would be great to take bike rides on errands instead of driving. Good for the environment, good for my body. - 5/17/2011   11:21:31 PM

    If I won this bike, I would give it to my daughter. She has no car, her fiance's car is broken, and her bike is falling apart. She could SO use this. They'll be getting married this year and are very short on money as they're both still in college. - 5/17/2011   6:14:39 PM

    I divorced last year and was feeling hopeless. Because of space and money I ended giving up alot of things that I really enjoyed. My bike was one of them. winning this bike would mean that I could get back into endurance riding again and shed all the weight that I've gained as a result of depression. - 5/16/2011   7:02:43 PM

    My husband and I have lost 50 pounds. I think this would be a great birthday gift for him (May 12) but better yet both of us would win as we continue this journey. Congrats to the winner!

    I would love to win this bike to up the intensity of my physical training ... I started out walking and have eased into a run ... before I lost weight, I never thought I could do these things. I am ready to tackle a bike! Thanks for the generous opportunity to have a try at winning this bike! - 5/16/2011   11:22:03 AM

    This is VERY cool! My running buddy and I want to do a sprint triathalon next year, but the biggest obstacle to me is a road bike. I have a mountain bike that is 15 years old and just won't cut it. I love swimming and running, and a road bike is the next step in becoming a well-rounded athlete. Although any training sounds like tough work right now - I completed my first half marathon yesterday!! - 5/16/2011   11:01:55 AM

    I used to love to ride my bike. I rode it all over town as a teenager, even after becoming a driver. It was great for small town Iowa! I rode a little in college but that was in the city and a little scary. I rarely rode after getting married and having kids. How perfect would it have been to go riding as a family!

    My last ride was on vacation and I got scared and fell. Worse though, a very good friend fell as a result of my accident and was seriously injured. She has recovered and we are still friends. But I hate it that my negative experience has been my last bike ride. It would be awesome to win a bike of my own and USE it, love it, and add another dimension to my exercise options. - 5/16/2011   10:41:00 AM

    I bike to work 3 days a week on a mountain bike. I would really prefer to do so on a road bike but cannot afford one at this time. I love biking, especially because it strengthens my legs while providing great cardio. Remember, biking runs on fat and saves you money; driving runs on money and makes you fat. ;) - 5/16/2011   10:24:26 AM

    I have wanted a road bike for about a year now, and I've been working really hard to get one. I instituted a reward system for which every healthy decision I make I put a "reward" dollar in a jar, hoping that some day I can rack up enough "reward" dollars to get myself a bike so I can start training and participate in my first triathalon! Though, this reward system has been going on for about 4 months now and I have a considerable amount racked up, it's no where near the $800 for a new bike. I'd love to win this bike to make my goal of completing a triathlon in 2011 come true!! - 5/16/2011   9:56:37 AM

    I have been thinking about riding to work for a while now, but I currently do not have a bike - I am only about 8 miles away and it would be an awesome way to get exercise in! - 5/16/2011   9:20:26 AM
