What does a Boda Boda Look Like?

Draw to win a FREE bike!

On June 27th, Yuba Bicycles will release a new bike: the Boda Boda Cargo Cruiser. It gets its name from the ubiquitous utility bicycles seen all over the African continent. Boda Bodas get people and products to their destinations day in and day out. They not only carry essentials, but also transport the dreams and ambitions of individuals from their communities to the world at large.

The Boda Boda Cargo Cruiser empowers cyclists for everyday adventures, from trips to the farmer’s market to elegant picnics off the bike trail.  What do you dream of doing by bike?

How to enter
To enter to win a free Yuba Bicycles Boda Boda Cargo Cruiser, simply draw a picture of what you think it will look like. The drawing can be as simple as a scrawl on a bar napkin or as involved as a fully rendered 3D drawing. The person who we deem guesses the most accurately, gets a free bike.

Send completed drawings to kaytea@yubabikes.com by noon (pacific time) on June 22, 2012 to enter. The winner will be announced at the Boda Boda launch party on June 27.
