Product Endorsement Disclosure Statement

Charity Fitness Events is produced by freelance writer Lynn Smythe, AKA the Bike Diva

Bike Diva Product Endorsements
The Bike Diva is occasionally contacted by marketing companies to see if she would be willing to provide an endorsement for some of the products their clients manufacture. The Bike Diva would need to receive one or more samples of the product to test out before an endorsement can be written.

Disclosure Statement
The Bike Diva may receive free merchandise in exchange for writing product endorsements. Bike Diva NEVER receives monetary compensation in exchange for product endorsements. The Bike Diva personally tests each product that is submitted for review. Products are tested in a variety of conditions including road biking, mountain biking, trail running and road running. Products submitted for review may undergo additional testing by amateur athletes that participate in marathons, triathlons, duathlons and other sporting events.

Here are links to the products that have been endorsed by Bike Diva site.
