Posted by: pansy on April 23, 2019

Posted by: Platform on April 23, 2019

how do you join the team? I registered but not sure how to join Contestgirl?

Posted by: MaryA on April 23, 2019

This is the link they sent me. Not sure if it works! Happy building

Posted by: pansy on April 23, 2019

Same thing as last year. Only 6 bikes up to this date, but let's all chip in to make sure they get their 1000 bikes.

Posted by: Maliergo on April 23, 2019

I absolutely love doing this every year. It warms my heart.

the link to join the team didn't work, I don't see anything on the website for how to join an existing team, is it only by invite?

Posted by: scorpio on April 23, 2019

I registered after clicking the link posted on the Contestgirl website, and my parts contributed to the team's! We're up to 208 parts now!

Posted by: stymchuk on April 23, 2019

stymchuk, where did you find the link on the contestgirl website to click? The link given in this thread does not appear to work. Is it posted somewhewre else?

Posted by: scorpio on April 23, 2019

OK! I found the link. put my glasses on, and seen it on the main listing. Joined the team!

Posted by: scorpio on April 23, 2019

Heads up, fellow builders, it's a 24-hour entry period.

Posted by: paulyana on April 23, 2019

Thank you! Register under contest girl

Posted by: mistycarole on April 24, 2019

Joined! Added 10 today!

Posted by: Msshell82 on April 24, 2019

I joined and did the bike building thing : )

Posted by: CatAteMyDogma on April 24, 2019

I added a spoke today. Go CG team!

Posted by: wildthing58 on April 24, 2019

To join the CG team, you have to click on the link Linda provided at the end of her post. It says 'here'. If the link works, a window should open that says: 'Create an Account'.

If you have already registered individually, I don't think you can move your account to the CG team. Just keep spinning that wheel! And feel good that we are all working towards the same goal!

Posted by: paulyana on April 24, 2019

paulyana is correct in first half of comment...then when account is made I went back to CG post and clicked link to join CG team ... Bicycle Factory asked if I wanted to join CG team in a pop-up -worked for me

Posted by: august1 on April 24, 2019

Kudos for figuring it out, august1.

Posted by: paulyana on April 25, 2019

Same here august1. I didn't get that pop-up yesterday but it appeared today and I clicked on it. My bike now has 15 parts. So happy to have joined the team!

Posted by: Wenda1 on April 25, 2019

Today I was able to enter less than 24 hours after yesterday's entry, which was not the case before. So now it's not clear if it is a 24-hour entry period.

Posted by: paulyana on April 25, 2019

I was also able to enter in less than 24 hrs.
33 bikes built by our team so far--very nice to be part of this!

Posted by: stymchuk on April 30, 2019

Nearly 41 now! Awesome job team :) :)

If anyone wants to read a story of an amazing philanthropist, google the original Mr. Cadbury. A man credited with the concept of the original subdivision, who was a devout Quaker who had a goal in life of not making money for himself from his candy factories but in putting it back in to create jobs and to build tiny house subdivisions. He took the same wages as his workers.

Interesting, Thanks Shirley54 : )

Does anyone else have trouble getting the wheel to spin?

Posted by: Tam on May 4, 2019

Sometimes, on Internet Explorer, so I switch to Microsoft Edge and it seems to work better then. Also, sometimes when it doesn't seem to work, it reacts as if the wheel has spun and gives me the parts.

Posted by: Wenda1 on May 5, 2019

did anyone else get an email invite for a video research chat?

Posted by: scorpio on May 6, 2019

Totally baffled how to get on board with this and I would really like to!

Posted by: maddmom on May 6, 2019

affirmative scorpio

Posted by: wildthing58 on May 7, 2019

scroll up to apr 24th posts by paulyana and myself

Posted by: august1 on May 7, 2019

Yes, I got that email, scorpio. I wasn't interested so I just deleted it.

Posted by: Wenda1 on May 7, 2019

I got the email too. Phoned them and they said they already had too many yesterday.

Posted by: pansy on May 9, 2019

I just joined in building the bike. I added 5 parts.

Posted by: lindafast on May 11, 2019

Welcome lindafast. We're at the midway mark, day 21 of 42 building days. Keep on spinning everyone!

Posted by: paulyana on May 12, 2019

It's great to see Canadians from all over the country participating. This morning I saw someone from NU (Nunavut) had added parts. I've put this on my FB page to recruit more people.
