Rules

  • Anyone who registered their bicycle in July 2020 or later will enter the raffle.
  • Every month, starting from July 2020, two prize winners will be selected at random. Raffle winners are picked utilizing the Random(), Rank.EQ(), Index(), Match(), and Countif() functions in Excel.
  • Once you win the raffle, you are removed from the raffle pool.
  • All bike registrants will remain in the raffle pool for two year or until they win a prize! E.g. those who registered in October 2021, will remain in the raffle pool until September 2023 or until they win a prize.
  • Following is how the raffle pool system works:
    • 16 people registered their bicycle in July 2020, and two raffle winners were selected using Excel.

    • 162 people registered their bicycles in September 2020. There were 361 people in the raffle of September 2020, and two raffle winners were selected.
    • and so on…
  • All prize winners will have a choice to relinquish their prize. In that case, they will be removed from the raffle pool and another prize winner will be selected for that specific month.
  • The first to claim the prize will have a choice of U-lock or a helmet. The other prize winner for the month will receive the remaining item.
  • The names of all prize winners will be published every month. The prize winners can notify Bike at Illinois if they do not want their names published. In that case, their names will be redacted.
