PRESS RELEASE: DŌST Bikes and PeopleForBikes Partnership

DŌST Bikes and PeopleForBikes Announce Partnership and eBike Giveaway

Vancouver, Canada (July 19, 2021) — Canadian eBike manufacturer DŌST Bikes is excited to announce joining the PeopleForBikes Coalition and a new partnership. The joining of forces between industry and advocacy is aimed at getting more people riding bikes in North America through a new campaign — #RideSomeGood. The  campaign will run throughout the summer with prizes for completing monthly challenges,  including a grand prize of a free DŌST eBike. 

“We teamed up with PeopleForBikes so we could work toward a common goal — getting the streets filled with bicycles,” said DŌST Co-Director of Sustainability Cory Leis. “We provide the electric assist bikes that enable more people to ride more often, which is critically important from a climate change perspective, as well as health. But we recognize that advocacy organizations also play a critical role, so we’re proud to be supporting them with funding this summer.” 

The #RideSomeGood campaign includes two distinct components that are both open to ANYONE with a bike, not just an electric bike, in the U.S. and Canada: 

The 1,000,000 Kilometer Challenge

This collective group challenge is an opportunity for riders to raise money for advocacy just by getting on their bikes. Participants will join the 1,000,000 Kilometer Challenge on PeopleForBikes’ free Ride Spot app to track their rides, which are then automatically added to the group kilometer total. DŌST will donate $1,000 for every 100,000 kilometers ridden, with a maximum donation of $10,000 for 1 million kilometers ($7,000 to PeopleForBikes and $3,000 to VeloCanada). 

Monthly Challenges With Prizes

Monthly riding challenges on Ride Spot will help get more people biking and give riders the chance to win prizes from DŌST’s new line of eco-apparel including t-shirts and riding socks when they complete a unique monthly challenge. For every challenge a rider completes, they’ll receive a ticket in the grand prize draw for a new eBike from DŌST. 

“It’s great to see PeopleForBikes member companies using creative Ride Spot incentives like #RideSomeGood to get more people riding more often,” said PeopleForBikes Director of Membership and Industry Engagement Rod Judd. “We’re glad to be working with supporters like DŌST that share our belief that bikes will help build a better future.”
