(Cross-posted to the I Bike T.O. Blog)
Over on the BikingToronto Flickr Group, I always look for great photos of bikes and cyclists around Toronto (I’m looking into ways of highlighting these on the blog more, quickly and easily) but what I love to find is someone just rockin’ one of the I Bike T.O. t-shirts I designed.
Pictured below is Elli, a new(ish) cyclist in Toronto, looking amazing in an I Bike T.O. shirt, and below the photo is text by Elli telling us a bit about herself as well as why she bought the shirt.
So little bit of a background story on my biking adventures. I started doing long city rides with my best friend Luke in the summer of 2010. The rides have always ranged between 35km and 75km. Even though we were both born and raised in Etobicoke, we found biking around Toronto was such a different, interesting, and fun way to see parts of the city that you can’t see when you’re in a car. I used to go to university in Waterloo, so whenever April rolled around we would be itching to go biking again. Luckily this year I’m at school in Toronto so the biking has already begun with a trip to the Bluffs.
I came across the Biking Toronto shirts last summer while spending countless hours online looking through anything biking/city related. I finally decided a couple weeks ago that the wait had been long enough. A new season had just begun, and with that a new biking shirt had to be added to the wardrobe (to complement my new bike, of course!). When it comes to t-shirts I always prefer v-necks that are either black or white, so naturally I bought the womens black v-neck shirt. It arrived two weeks earlier than I was expecting it to, but of course that was just another plus. I love the shirt so much because it represents where I’m from and what I love to do. I think it is safe to say that I’m happiest when I’m on a bike.
I can’t wait to wear this shirt on my upcoming city rides and show it off! And perhaps I will even end up getting a few more of those shirts in the future. There are at least two others that have my attention.
I hope you enjoy the shirt and that it helps you meet other cyclists. Everyone seems to love them!
