Left-Wing Pinko I Bike T.O. Shirt

UPDATE! We’ve added a Red Mens T-Shirt and Pink Womens T-Shirt to our products!

You may have seen (or own) one of our t-shirts with the famous I Bike T.O. logo we designed, and we’ve just added 3 new Left-Wing Pinko shirts to the product line up.  Maybe we should send one to Don Cherry?

(you can also change the colour of the t-shirts to suit your liking…)

[UPDATE: A lot of these are being bought as Christmas presents! :)  Ho, ho, ho!]

  • Where can I buy one?

  • They’re just online right now Joe… click the t-shirt to go to the ordering page. :)

  • TINO

    Awesome!

  • The Toronto Star has a story about these new shirts… and Spacing’s buttons!

  • Michael Pett

    These are amazing! What bike-related charities will the proceeds from the t-shirts be donated to?

  • We’ve been talking with a few… Toronto Coalition for Active Transportation, Trailblazers (Tandem bike rides for the vision-impaired) and hopefully Charlie’s FreeWheels (teaching at risk youth bike repair skills) too.

  • John Martin

    Awesome. I think you should add FU DC on the back, maybe with a hockey stick like the Spacing buttons.

  • Interesting idea John… but instead I may send one “as is” to Don. :)

  • Michael Pett

    You should include the RONA MS Bike Tours in there! More so a bike-related fundraiser, but still a great cause. Then again, I’m a little biased. ;)

  • Good quotes, Meg. :)

    We made sure we weren’t ANTI anything… just embracing of the “Pinko” label. :)

  • what about winter wear? This isn’t exactly t-shirt weather!

  • tony

    V-neck? No thanks.

  • Christopher

    Yeah, it’d be even more amazing if you made a non v-neck version (i.e., a regular t-shirt).

  • Hello gang,
    This is Celina, a cyclist from Vancouver. I just read about the embarrassing comments that Don Cherry made during the inauguration of the new mayor in Toronto. I am sorry that this happened. We can hope that his statements were so extreme that he alienated people that are not as radical in their positions – pushing more people to the “left”.

    I am writing to you and the other cycling organizations in Toronto to make a suggestion. I suggest that Toronto’s pedestrian and Toronto’s “pinkos out there that ride bicycles”. Claim what Don is trying to label “you” with. I am suggesting that you reach out to your connections in the cycling community and ask that they go to their forgotten ‘80s drawer or nearest thrift shop and find the most outrageous pink jackets and get on your bikes!

    From here in Vancouver, we look at all that Toronto has done to encourage people to get out of their cars and to move to a more sustainable transportation options. Please don’t let these sentiments go by without some united response from the PINKOS!

    Good luck!

  • Thanks for the comments, guys.

    We’ve just added regular T-shirt options:

    A Red Men’s Shirt (spreadshirt is silly and doesn’t have men’s shirts in pink)

    A Pink Women’s Shirt

  • Antikythera

    Charlie’s! If proceeds are going to Charlie’s I’m totally getting one.

  • I think Charlies is working on getting charitable status… so if they do, they’re getting some money for sure. :)

    Got bored and felt creative this evening and whipped this up which seems to fit the theme you’ve got going here. If you’d care to add it to your t shirt designs you’re more than welcome to. feel free to modify it too, add your slogan etc. Royalty free of course! It’d be nice to contribute in some way to your cause.
