Bono Invites You to Ride a Tandem Bike With Him in Central Park for (RED)

When U2 frontman and philanthropist Bono was involved in a bike accident a few years ago, seriously injuring himself in the process, it was thought that he may never play guitar again.

Surprisingly light-hearted about the incident, Bono recently created this comedic video announcing a contest in which you can win a ride on a tandem bike through Central Park and get ice cream with the celebrity.

Forget about jumping out of a plane, scaling Mount Everest, or getting in the ring with Mike Tyson. Bono is bringing you and a friend to New York City to REALLY live on the edge. You’ll meet him for a morning of stories and signed merchandise before embarking on a lovely bike ride through one of the most iconic places in the world. After that (provided you all survive), Bono has one more stop to help you cool off that recent rush of adrenaline: ice cream. We’ll provide your flights and 4-star hotel; Bono will provide the motorcycle helmets.

You can enter the contest an unlimited amount of times, but each entry has a dollar amount donation associated with it, with all donations going to fight aids through (RED).

Check out the contest page to learn more about the contest.
