Win a sweet ride!

It's Bike Week in Halifax! And we have it in mind to give you a chance to win a sweet new ride.

We have a brand new MEC Midtown Bicycle valued at $650 from the folks at Mountain Equipment Co-op and we want to give it away to a most-deserving bike enthusiast.

All you have to do to win ... show us your "Bicycle Beater".

Show us Nova Scotia's most used bike, and we'll replace it.

All you have to do to enter is send us a picture of your current bike and tell us, in a hundred words or fewer, how your bike got so beat up in the first place.

What we're not looking for: a story about how your dad backed over your bike with the family SUV.

No, we want to hear about bikes that have gone the distance on the trails and streets of this fair province.

We want to retire a bike that has done everything one can expect a bike to do.

You have until Thursday at noon to get your picture and hundred-word story to us.

We'll pick our top five entries, throw them up on our website and starting Thursday afternoon we'll let Mainstreet listeners vote on which bike deserves to go to its final resting place ... to be replaced by a shiny new MEC Midtown Bicycle.

Send your "Bicycle Beater" picture to MAINHFX@CBC.CA ... and remember, you have to have the picture and story to us by noon on Thursday ... no exceptions.
