Join/Renew with Cycle Toronto, Win a Bike!

 

Cycle Toronto has started their second Refer-A-Rider campaign (it runs to Oct 31) and I’m going  to try and win the campaign to win the great Bobbin Daytripper bike from Curbside Cycle that is first prize. (or, if I place 2nd or 3rd – competition is fierce, after all – it will be a Bobbin Birdie)

If I win the Bobbin Bike, it is not for me.  IT IS FOR YOU!

Anyone that signs up (or renews) with Cycle Toronto via the link on my campaign page will get entered into the draw to win the Bike.  I don’t really need a new bike, so I’ll use it to encourage membership in Cycle Toronto.

Bobbin Daytripper Details:

The Daytripper is your reliable, everyday, best mate of a bike. Its a slim steel frame (we know you boys are obsessed), complemented by practical Bobbin elements like hub gears, a chainguard and mudguards. The Daytripper will save you from maintenance, trouser clips, dangling your groceries off your bars and failing to cool on a fixie. Plus, the upright position means you can sneak in a little window shopping or reflection check whilst at traffic lights.


Bobbin Birdie Details:

The Birdie is our most popular bike and we have thousands of women swishing around town and along country lanes on it’s trademark colourful frames.

With it’s no-fuss 3 speed hub gears, mudguards and rear rack, the Birdie is practical, easy to look after and magically smooth to ride. And with a colour spectrum Mary Quant would be proud of, it’s getting a reputation for dropping jaws and turning heads from Islington to Echo Park. Pick it up: it feels surprisingly light too!

Cycle Toronto is an organization that is advocating for new and better bike infrastructure (and saving the infrastructure we already have), you will awesome get fantastic member benefits like discounts at bike stores and restaurants.

I’ve lined up some other prizes to go in this draw as well.

Please join or renew (just use the same email you’re currently signed up with, and you’ll have a year added onto the end of your membership) with Cycle Toronto by clicking here.  Let me give you a bike!
