Today is the last day of the I Bike T.O. Shirt Sale!

Last Monday, we launched an *at cost* sale for the super-popular I Bike T.O. Shirts in celebration of 10,000 followers on the @bikingtoronto twitter account and 1,500 likes on the BikingToronto Facebook page… and TODAY is the very LAST day to get in on the deal!

The shirts have sold way more than expected… interest before the sale indicated anywhere between 25-50 would be sold. As of this morning, we are at over 250 shirts sold!!

It all means a bunch more admin work for me (I’ve been spending 2-3 hours every night the last two weeks compiling orders and keeping everything as organized as I can), but it’s worth it… everyone is SO excited to get shirts!

 

If you’ve been thinking about getting a shirt but need some extra incentive, here it is:

I was going to let this be a surprise, but I want everyone possible to get a shirt on sale PLUS the bonus free gift each package will have… a couple I Share The Road stickers, designed for putting on bikes and cars, and graciously donated by James Schwartz of the excellent blog The Urban Country.

What’s that? You want more?

In addition, each t-shirt will come with details of a very simple contest that will give you excellent chances at one of MANY gift cards from the excellent Toronto company Gelaskins, who make very cool artistic and custom skins and covers for phones, tablets and laptops.

I’m also working with the fantastic bike magazines Dandyhorse and Momentum on something from them as well. More details will come with your shirt.

I’m even working with Two Wheels Delivery so that if you live in Toronto, there’s a very good chance your shirt will be delivered on two wheels!

What’s that? You haven’t bought a shirt at our super low price yet? You know what to do ( and you only have until midnight to do it ).

OH YEAH! The Viaduct bikelanes get MORE green paint!

Well, I don’t know what’s going on.  This is a level of paying attention to cycling infrastructure on the Bloor Viaduct that, quite frankly, I thought I’d never see (and it pissed me off, often). But now, after the green paint that was laid down late last week in the bikelane, there is now MORE […]

FACEPALM: City closes Hoskin bikelane for PanAm Games

What’s a great idea?  Closing down one of the busiest bikelanes in the city and not providing a detour that’s safe for cyclists (and pedestrians) because of the “short distance of the inconvenience”. A sign erected on June 25 indicates the closure of the Hoskin bike lane for two months during the Pan Am Games. […]
