WIN A $950 STRIDA FOLDING BIKE!

As the weather gets warmer we’re looking forward to spending plenty of sun-soaked days outdoors – and what better way to take full advantage of the beautiful weather than by breezing along on a slick bicycle [2]? We here at Inhabitat want to encourage the use of the world’s most eco-efficient (and fun) mode of transportation, so we’ve teamed up with our fantastic friends at Areaware [3] to give away a styling brand new STRiDA 5.0 SX Limited [4] folding bike!

All you have to do to win is provide us with photographic evidence of why you need this awesome bicycle – is your current ride a crusty old clunker [5]? Is there a mammoth mountain of steps leading up to your 6th floor walkup apartment? Whatever the case, upload your photos after the jump and leave a comment explaining why we should pimp your eco-ride, and we’ll be selecting one lucky winner to receive this beautiful limited edition Strida [6] bicycle valued at $950!

TO ENTER:

1. Sign up for our newsletter [7]

2. Leave a comment on this post, and upload a photo explaining why you need this fantastic folding bike! All photos must be sized to 537 pixels wide and should be under 100k in file size.

Designed by Mark Sanders [8], the Strida 5.0 [9] has the smallest footprint of any full-sized folding bike, weighs in at just 22 pounds, and folds in 5 seconds flat into a compact form that can be easily wheeled into subways, stored in a closet, carried on buses, or carted up stairs.

All you have to do is sign up for our newsletter [7] and then leave a comment and a photo below telling us why it’s high time to trade in your beater bike (or lack thereof) for a slick folding Strida.
