Carolina Cycling News stopped by the globalbikes Wipes booth to check out the new wipes Spartanburg-based Athletix Products by Contec has launched at Interbike 2012 in Las Vegas. There are three different specifically formulated presaturated globalbike™ Wipes products – globalbike™ Body Wipes (Fresh Scent and Unscented), globalbike™ Chain Wipes and globalbike™ Hand and Tool Wipes. The body wipes are compostable and biodegradable and the chain wipes both clean and lubricate your bike chain. A percentage of proceeds from the wipe sales will be given to globalbike.
“Our partnership with globalbike is a win-win for our company,” said Jack McBride, Contec’s CEO. “We are especially excited to give away a gbconnect trip for two. This is a week-long trip, which will give participants a first-hand view of how a simple bicycle can bring dynamic transformation to the lives of less fortunate people. We believe it will be a life-changing event for the winners, too.”
globalbike and Contec, Inc., are also partnering to offer two free trips to Tanzania during Interbike. The trips will give recipients a chance to participate in globalbike’s signature program, gbconnect, which is a week-long transformative tourism trip that allows participants to stay in scenic sites that are receiving globalbikes, while helping with person-to-person handoffs of donated bikes to see how the vehicles make a difference.
“We guarantee that anyone who travels through gbconnect will not return home the same,” said Curt McPhail, President and Founder of globalbike. “This trip will transform how you see the world and how you can make a difference with something as simple as a bike.”
The next gbconnect trip is scheduled for May 31-June 10, 2013. If you’re interested in traveling through gbconnect, email email@example.com.
