2003 festival winners won: a new 3G bicycle, bicycle books, posters,
tee shirts, bike memorabilia, certificates suitable for framing,
and fantastic bragging rights!
In 2003, winners
were judged by the general audience and participants. Everyone
attending the festival was handed a ballot which listed each category.
Bicycle owners that wanted to compete, simply attached a special
festival (individually numbered) tag on their bicycle. Each person
judging simply wrote the number of the bicycle they favored next
to category on the ballot. Each category had a special prefix
letter (i.e. N = novelty).
we may do it a little different, but this system seemed to work
counted around 2pm and prizes were awarded shortly after.
