I’ve worked out the clues and released the golden bike. What do I do with it now?
Return the bike and lock to the Evans Cycles store of your choice. The staff will retain them and also take down your details so you can be contacted.
Can I ride the bike to the store?
No! The bike is not roadworthy and we cannot be held liable for any injuries sustained if you do attempt to ride the old banger.
Will I get my prize instantly in store when I claim?
We know you will be excited but you will have to wait a few days. The golden bike will be returned to our head office. Once verified, we will send you £1000 of Evans Cycles vouchers towards the bike of your choice from our entire range, so make sure you give your correct contact details!
Where is my nearest Evans Cycles Store to take the bike to?
You can find your nearest store online here.
I have found one of the bikes but I don’t have the combination for the lock. Can I break the lock or cut up the bike to release it?
No, you will need to bring in the complete bike and the intact lock to make your claim. The combination for the lock will be included in the clues.
Are the bikes already hidden in all the cities?
No, the bikes are hidden at the start of each city’s event.
I stumbled across a gold bike but the location doesn’t match up with any of the clues, should I try to bring it in anyway?
Stop! This bike probably belongs to someone else, removing it is theft!
I’m not a member of the Twitterati, can I still join in and have a chance of winning?
Yes, bookmark this page - we will repeat all the clues here as they are posted by Sir Chris.
I have an old gold bike of my own – can I trade it in for £1000?
Sorry, only the 3 bikes hidden by Sir Chris Hoy will be eligible. You can however trade in your old banger for up to £100 off a new bike of your choice. You can find details here.
Terms and conditions:
This competition is not open to employees of Evans Cycles, their family members, or employees of suppliers to Evans Cycles.
