 Hey bud, To enter the contest you'll need to scroll down to the bottom of the contest page to view the entry form and fill it out. Best of luck!
  • + 18
 @giantbicycles: the button doesn't do anything though
  • + 8
 @giantbicycles: Well hopefully I'm entered...... The enter now button at the bottom of the entry form doesn't appear to do anything.
  • + 14
 @dro-cfr: We'll check for you to make sure it went through. When we entered we noticed the entry now button has a subtle confirmation that is hard to see. Thanks for everyone's questions. We'll get it dialed in.

 @miketizzle I'm not sure if you're trying to enter the contest from you're phone but it didn't work for me either; although everything was smooth sailing once I tried on my laptop.
  • + 7
 Leaving this comment here so people can read it but does anyone remember when they did this contest last year except you essentially worked as an intern? This is definitely a bit better of a prize. So cool.
  • + 3
 @ben8633: Did you check the box saying that you agree to the terms, blah blah blah?
  • + 5
 For everyone reading this the button isn't working on mobile i jumped on to my computer and it worked
  • + 5
 @giantbicycles: I mashed that "Enter Now" button so many times my phone's screen got blurry. What's going on?
  • + 1
 @southoftheborder: me too!!! Bloody thing! I wanna win it!!!!!! :-)
  • + 9
 That's good! Gives me a better chance of winning...

 @Dhchamp3344:

yeah not working on android. on the pc done in seconds.
  • + 2
 @hampsteadbandit: That was my problem
  • + 2
 @Dhchamp3344: in this day and age, an online contest should work on a phone.
  • + 1
 @Woodbridge2: haha me too !
  • + 2
 @giantbicycles: it just tells me that I've already entered but I haven't
  • + 1
 it so sad, my cit doesnt exist... i guess that there is not even a slight chance for me
  • + 1
 @jncrider: Same for me, worked with a different email address though. Seems they still have the entries listed from last year?! Or someone stole my mail address lol
  • + 1
 This is literally the only time i get excited about giving away my personal information.
  • + 1
 Goodluck to everyone
  • + 27
 Can we ban anyone who has ever entered a competition by Facebook please? This is pretty much the only competition the rest of us have ever been able to enter and it's only fair...
  • + 2
 What about the Pinkbike advent give away? Amazing free prizes every single day, like 30 days in a row. As well as many other give-away contests here on Pinkbike.
  • + 18
 I cringe at the idea of winning a trip of a lifetime, and only having 3 weeks notice.
Not saying I wouldn't call out sick or something. Because it would happen. But it wouldn't go without making some serious waves on the "real life" side of things.
  • + 17
 all of pinkbike will vouch for how sick you are to your boss. we got your back.
  • + 19
 While I'm at it, can I please provide my social security number and my credit card numbers up front? You know, so the hacker's/identity stealer's job won't be any more difficult than necessary.
  • + 4
 pretty much.
  • + 45
 if anyone would like to steal my identity, have at 'er. with my life savings, you could have an absolute rager at taco bell.
  • + 4
 I think they could actually make more money by selling your data, than the whole trip is gonna cost them. Apart from the value of the advertisement they get through it.
  • + 24
 An email and a name should be sufficient to enter a contest on an unsecured site. Just my $0.02.
  • + 2
 @rocky-mtn-gman: HAHAHA same here
  • + 2
 Ole Fawk that's a lotta personal info for a free trip
  • + 1
 @rocky-mtn-gman: Problem isn't what you have that the hackers want to steal, it's what they can get with your info...new mortgages, cars, etc. with your data.
  • + 6
 If hackers want to steal my identity, have fun with that £50,000+ of student debt I've just finished accruing. Fill yer boots.
  • + 2
 I laugh at the poor sack that tries to use ANY aspect of my identity. That sucker is in for some surprises
  • + 2
 you all realize if someone steals your identity, its still your identity, right?
  • + 3
 @lyophilization: you realize arrest warrants and bankruptcy are still arrest warrants and bankruptcy , right?
  • + 16
 I understand contact info, but with the current climate of wed admins not knowing how to do their job and secure our data I am not really comfortable giving home address details. Think ill pass on this one.
  • + 53
 I did an reverse public ip lookup of your profile and it looks like your name is P. Sherman and your located at 42 Wallabee Way, Sydney Australia. oh yeah and your toilet bowl water goes in the wrong direction...
  • + 17
 @rocky-mtn-gman: I would be amused if your username didn't include gman.

/puts on tinfoil hat and backs away slowly.
  • + 3
 @darkmuncan: Or, if your name is Mark Duncan and you're 34 in Sydney, it wouldn't be too hard to find you. You've got to assume They already know about you and your location, but They just don't care at the moment.
  • + 1
 @endlessblockades: oh yep, name and dob are all over the place due to my re-use of usernames and inconsistent profile info, but home address where my family sleeps? Ide prefer that not to be.
  • + 4
 @endlessblockades: I'M Mark Duncan.
  • + 4
 @darkmuncan: I hear ya, but here in the US, I can find my last 3 addresses and all my relatives with frightening ease - probably the same in most places. Just saying, we're probably already compromised, so lets go the Crankworx!!!!
  • + 1
 @iamamodel: Duncan is my middle name. No joke - come and get me coppers!
  • + 2
 @iamamodel: Thanks Sparticus..
  • + 1
 @endlessblockades: with their semtex robots
  • + 10
 Where exactly are the "rules terms and conditions"? No link!

You don't get free data without telling us what you need it for and what you're going to do with it. Checking that box is pretty meaningless.
  • + 11
 I usually dont judge but that enter now botton is a prick
  • + 9
 WHYYYY do I have to be 19
  • + 14
 You're lucky - I'd have banned anyone that wasn't my exact age...
  • + 7
 Probably something to do with the legal drinking age etc
  • + 0
 @sendinit: I thought it was 21.
  • + 9
 @WAtrailmaker: not in the C-A of NADA
  • + 8
 @WAtrailmaker: in Canada it's 19 - CANADA F*CK YEAH

 @cwoodside4: 18 in Quebec!
  • + 10
 @cwoodside4: HEY! THAT'S OUR LINE! I'm going to shoot you and sue you if you keep using it.
  • + 4
 @fjas510: The American way.
  • + 1
 because no one likes children
  • + 6
 When you say "You must be 19-years-old to enter", do you mean you must be 19 years or older?
  • + 3
 updated - thanks
  • + 12
 no, it works only if you're 19 ^^
  • + 6
 So long as the person who steals my identity doesn't go in my place Im happy sign me up!
  • + 1
 Hi Everyone! Thanks for your comments and interest in the contest. This is the final week to enter! We addressed the glitch with the "enter now" button for mobile users. Luckily, the "enter now" button still collected all of your entries even though it didn't seem to work to confirm your entry. Stay tuned for when we announce the winner on July 25th. Good Luck!

 TAICHUNG, TAIWAN — THE bicycle maker Giant Manufacturing Company was established amid green rice paddies and earth-god temples, a short ride from the roar of the South China Sea. But for years its founder, King Liu, was never big on pedaling around to enjoy the scenery. The main reason he took one of his new products for a spin was to make sure everything worked.

After decades of struggles, it has. Giant is the world’s largest bike manufacturer by revenue. Its factories in Taiwan, China and the Netherlands churned out 6.3 million bicycles last year, generating revenue of $1.8 billion. The company sells bikes under its own name and makes them for major brands like Trek, Scott and Colnago.

At 79, Mr. Liu still puts in 10-hour days as Giant’s chairman. But after four decades of building bikes by the millions, he’s finally started to enjoy them. Trim and tan from daily rides, with close-cropped gray hair and a heart rate monitor strapped to his wrist, he has become the public face of a cycling boom on Taiwan.

“I have a mission to make Taiwan a capital of cycling,” he said.

Since 2007, bicycle sales on Taiwan have surged, bike lanes and paths have been expanded, and the island’s two largest cities, Taipei and Kaohsiung, have launched bike-share programs. At every step Mr. Liu has unflaggingly promoted the cause.
