#HandsomeHappyPlace 2018 Photo Contest Full Timeline, Rules, Terms, and Conditions

By entering the Show Us Your #HandsomeHappyPlace Instagram Contest, the contestant is completely releasing Handsome Cycles and Instagram from any and all damages, financial or otherwise, resulting from said entry. The contest is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with, Instagram.

 

Contest Details:

Riding a bike is so much fun, but winter can be a huge bummer. Handsome Cycles needs you to help us fight the depression by showing us your bike-riding “Happy Place.” Where do you daydream about riding your bike when the snowflakes are flying and the mercury has bottomed out? Is it somewhere you have been, or someplace you have heard about? Follow @handsomecycles and post your best photos with the hashtag #HandsomeHappyPlace for weekly opportunities to win Handsome prizes. Five winners will be chosen each week through the end of January. One of the lucky 20 weekly winners will then be awarded the Grand Prize of a full CycleOps trainer and accessories package!

 

How To Enter:

Follow @handsomecycles on Instagram and post a photo on Instagram with the hashtag #HandsomeHappyPlace

 

What photos are we looking for?

When you close your eyes and imagine yourself riding your bike in your favorite place, what does it look like? We want to see images of the places you ride that make you happy. You do not need to have actually ridden there. It could be somewhere you were and wish you had your bike with you to ride.

    Number Of Entries:

    There is no limit to the number of unique entries a contestant may submit.

     

    Number Of Wins Per Round:

We will look at each entry individually and determine the winners based on a completely subjective and, quite frankly and in all honesty, probably unfair manner.
