Secure Your Tickets Now for a Chance to Win a Cannondale Quick Bicycle

The Lakewood Summer Meltdown sponsored by Melt Bar and Grilled doesn’t return to Downtown Lakewood until July 13, yet it’s not too early to get ready for this highly-anticipated community event.

LakewoodAlive is proud to announce the 3rd Annual Summer Meltdown Bike Raffle presented by Beat Cycles.  This raffle offers contestants an opportunity to win one of two Cannondale Quick bicycles valued collectively at more than $1,300.  Beat Cycles will fit the lucky pair of raffle winners to bikes of the proper size.

Bike enthusiasts are invited to visit to secure raffle tickets in advance for two separate drawings (for both female and male bike models) now through July 11.  Tickets will also be available for purchase at Beat Cycles (15608 Detroit Avenue in Lakewood) starting today, June 21.  Look for the bikes on display in Beat Cycles’ storefront window.

Raffle tickets are priced at 1 for $10 or 3 for $25.

Tickets will also be available at the Beat Cycles Tent during the Summer Meltdown, which takes place from 4 to 10 p.m. on Saturday, July 13, in Downtown Lakewood.  The raffle drawing will be held at 9:30 p.m. on the main stage in the Gary K. Bish Memorial Beer Garden presented by First Federal Lakewood.  Contestants need not be present to win, and both winners will also receive the opportunity to visit Beat Cycles for a complimentary bike helmet, riding lights, water bottle and bottle cage.

Beat Cycles has generously donated two Cannondale Quick bicycles for the Summer Meltdown Bike Raffle.  With lightest-in-class weight, comfortable ride and supremely stable, confident handling, this popular bike model is the perfect tool to get fit, get around the city and have fun doing it.  Visit Beat Cycles for more information.

“Lakewood is renowned as a bike-friendly city, and we are excited to once again partner with our friends at Beat Cycles to offer the Summer Meltdown Bike Raffle,” said Ian Andrews, LakewoodAlive Executive Director.  “Fittingly, the bicycles being raffled reflect an urban commuter style conducive to riding in Lakewood.”      

One of the region’s most highly-anticipated street parties, the Summer Meltdown draws more than 10,000 attendees from across Northeast Ohio to the heart of Lakewood.  This fixture on our city’s summer calendar offers numerous recreation and celebration opportunities, including the Meltdown 5K presented by Cleveland Clinic Lakewood Family Health Center, 1 Mile Family Fun Run and Walk presented by Lakewood Family YMCA and Lakewood City Schools Community Recreation & Education Department, a beer garden, street festival, live music, food vendors, outdoor activities and more.
