Okay, we KNOW you have questions!

Feel free to contact us if you have a question that isn’t on this list.

Who’s judging this thing?

A panel of independent judges will select a winning candidate, basing their decision on the criteria listed above.

Is this really FREE?

You don’t have to pay anything to enter the Sarka Party Bike contest; however, owning a business is a serious investment, and you will need to factor in ongoing costs of operation, from hiring, training, and paying drivers to ongoing service and maintenance, promotion, bike storage and transportation, and so on. This is why the business plan is such an important part of the application. So, the bike is free… but you’re going to need start-up funds to get it rolling.

Do I have to pay taxes on my new Sarka Party Bike if I win?

Yes, just like any other contest, the IRS requires you to report prizes and winnings on your tax return, which means you’ll likely have to pay taxes on the party bike, if you win.

Does a party bike require a liquor license?

Ordinances vary from city to city; we’d be happy to help point you in the right direction to understand the rules in your own city. Riders often BYOB, or, if the bike is in a DORA community, open carry from the restaurants they patronize so that drivers do not have to operate as bartenders.

Do I need insurance to operate a party bike?

Yes, just like an automobile, you’ll want to make sure you and your guests are covered by limited liability insurance and property damage insurance, in addition to other optional coverage for liquor liability and so on.

Can my guests be charged with a DUI or OVI?

Riders are not in control of the party bike, even if they are pedaling. A trained—and sober—driver is doing the steering. 

I want a green polka-dot body with a pink striped canopy and an adjustable roof on my party bike. Can you do that for me?

We might question your color palette, but yes, we can customize your party bike. Standard customization options for your paint and canopy colors are included with the bike. Additional options, like an adjustable roof (and wildly radical color combinations) can be purchased.

If I win, how will I get my party bike?

Once we’ve worked with you to customize your bike according to our standard options of body and canopy colors (or other add-on features at your expense), we’ll be glad to deliver the bike to your destination!

Countdown to Enter the Giveaway

Entries will be accepted until 5PM on Thursday, May 18, 2023.


Terms & Conditions

The party bike is NOT amphibious. It will not float. Drivers of party bikes may not be under the influence. If found sitting at a red light paired up with an Amish horse and buggy, challenging other drivers to a race is not recommended. Party bikes top out at 4.5 MPH. The Amish man (and horse) will win. Party bike winners are expected to use their party bikes to start a party bike business, not to park their party bike in a garage for a spinning class. However, party bike spinning classes are fair game. Party bikes must obey all traffic laws, including but not limited to driving on sidewalks, snow bans, crosswalks, one-way streets, and traffic signals. Party bike will not make a good substitute tow truck, nor do we recommend ramps, jumps, curbs, rails, or using the bike for any other types of stunt racing. Party bikes are ineligible to compete in the Tour de France, though we’ve heard that Lance Armstrong considered it once. As noted above in the buggy scenario, party bikes have proven to be lousy street racing vehicles. Don’t even bother. No, you cannot have too much fun on a party bike. Yes, party bikes are the brainchild of Fred and Wilma Flintstone.
