Sonder Storybook 2019 Comp Now Open

By Alpkit
07, Jun, 2019

Release your inner Dervla Murphy and get published in our 2019 Sonder Storybook

Do you like exploring trails and back roads on your Camino?

What about hitting the trails and pushing the limits on your Transmitter? 

Maybe you prefer a multi-day bikepacking trip on the Frontier or loading up the panniers and riding across a country on the Santiago...

Whatever your story... we want to hear all about it.

Every year we publish a Storybook which is a collection of Sonder bikes and tales of adventure on the bike. We printed 10,000 copies of the 2018 Sonder Storybook which has been distributed around the world and shared online. We're looking to publish our 2019 edition in September and want your stories.

If you've ever fancied seeing your writing and photography in print then get some ink down on paper. We'll share stories and pictures on the Sonder website and the best ones will make it into the printed book that goes to all Sonder customers, you and your bike could be Sonder famous! 


What are we looking for? 

We need:

  • 400-1000 words about your story
  • A selection of hi-res images of you and your bike 
  • links to any social channels or websites you want to share with us
  • contact details - can just be your email address. 
  • Send these to Stories@sonderbikes.com

We're going to run the competition for inclusion in the 2019 Sonder Storybook until 31 July 2019 

So get planning your adventures, we can't wait to hear all about them!

You can share adventure, stories and pictures via social media using #sonderbikes and #sonderstories
