When re-launching the brand in late 2017 we ran an Instagram competition to give away a Free Collective Bikes C1 BMX bike, when we reached 10,000 followers on our Instagram Account - @collectivebikes
We smashed the target in 48 hours and a winner was picked at random by Ryan Taylor! A young girl from Eastbourne named Kally Barnes.
Myself and Ryan Taylor was talking in the office one day and decided we wanted to make sure Collective Bikes did give aways better than any other BMX Brand. We agreed to secretly drive all the way to the south coast and deliver the winners bike by hand from Ryan Taylor himself!
We rented a van and made the trip down to Eastbourne, notifying the winner that DPD was on route to deliver the new BMX bike that morning! Once we arrived at the address Ryan jumped in the back of the van to hide and i knocked on the door the girl who won opened and came outside to take delivery of her bike, on to see Ryan Taylor fly out the back of the van on her brand new Collective Bikes C1 Raw BMX Bike. The look on her face was genuine shock and surprise!
We was at the winners house for 30 minutes she got to chat and socialise with Ryan and they shot some photos together and filmed a section for Ryan's Vlog on his YouTube channel! Before leaving the winner with their new bike!
