Walk into the Future is canceled for 2020, but in its place Construct is holding a drawing for a great prize to raise money for local workers struggling to afford housing. Construct has teamed with Berkshire Bike & Board to offer a $3,000 E-Bike.
E-bikes offer low cost, energy-efficient, and emission-free transportation with physical and health benefits. Using rechargeable batteries, they can travel much faster than most people would cycle, getting you to your destination quicker and in better shape. Intuitively reacting to the force of your pedaling, the harder you pedal, the more power it delivers. With a sleek geometry that makes getting on and off the bike and putting a foot down super easy, the Turbo Como 3.0 features a near-silent operating design that is smooth, silent, and free of annoying vibrations. Cruising up to speeds of 20mph, the custom U1-460 battery is seamlessly integrated into the frame, lockable, and easily removable for simplified charging. Check out how great the Specialized Turbo Como 3.0 is in this video (then buy a ticket!
Tickets are $20 each.

Tickets will be available until September 30, 2020 at 5:30 pm.
Drawing will be September 30, 2020 at 6:00 pm.
Berkshire Bike & Board and Lee Bank are sponsors.
