A Very Green Sprint Auction


Climate Camp banner

In this week’s Sprint Auction you will be delighted to know that not only are you saving yourselves money but you are also getting some certified Green (Oil) merchandise!

This week’s auction is not a single item, as has been the case previously, but a bundle of delightfully Green bike maintenance products. The Eco Rider Deluxe Set (RRP £34.99) is the greenest bicycle maintenance kit on the market, with performance to match. It comes in the Eco Rider tub that makes transporting/storing all your Green Oil bits nice and easy.

And just when you thought that the guys at Green Oil had not thought of everything, they even include a packet of seeds so once you have used all your maintenance gear you can reuse the tub as a flower pot and grow yourself some Rocket or Basil. (Clearly, you’ll need to add some soil to the mix!) If you want to know more about Green Oil and the great work they are doing you can find it here!

So what is in the Eco Rider Deluxe Set?

- Green Clean bike cleaner 1 litre
- EcoSponge for frame cleaning
- Green Oil chain lube 100ml
- Clean Chain degreaser 100ml
- Ecogrease 100ml
- Green Oil Bicycle Brush for wheel and sprocket cleaning
- Bioplastic stickers
- Tough bucket
- A pack of seeds – Rocket Salad or ‘Sweet Genovese’ Basil herb. (You’ll need to let them know which one you want)

What’s the Auction Format?

So onto the auction details, the format will be the same as usual:

  • The Lot will be the Eco Rider Deluxe Set from Green Oil RRP £34.99 (see picture above).
  • The bidding will start at £5 with small increments of £2 and there will be NO reserve price set.
  • The auction will run from 12.30pm until 4.30pm at which point the winner will be contacted and arrangements made for delivery.
  • The auction will take place in the GGB Sprint Auction Store

So why not make your Friday afternoon go a little quicker and give your bike some green TLC?!
