There are 13 Free I Bike T.O. shirts left. Get Yours.

UPDATE: The Free T-shirt / Gelaskins / Roots promotion is over (I passed 100 people referred), but the prizes further down this post are still up for grabs.

I launched this promotion last Monday, and 87 people have already signed up.  That means only 13 free shirts are left.  Get one while you can!

All you need to do to get a shirt is be one of the first 100 people to become (or renew as) a member of Cycle Toronto using this link.

(Even if your membership isn’t up for renewal, the Cycle Toronto people say using that link will automatically add another year onto your membership – just use the same email address.)

The ONLY thing I’ll ask is for $5 to cover packaging and shipping to get the shirt to you.  All other costs and taxes will be covered by me.

A few days after you sign up or renew, I’ll email you with details about choosing the colour and size of shirt you want.

Please click here to sign up (or renew) with Cycle Toronto.

A Devinci Montreal Bike!

(value: $650)

Cycle Toronto is putting the names of everyone who signs up into a draw for a bike donated by Curbside Cycle.  The bike is a Devinci Montreal and looks amazing.  If you win you can choose the male or female version of the bike.

“We met with Devinci about five years ago to help design a lightweight, sportier city bike, that could truly multi-task day-in-day-out city cycling plus longer recreational jaunts on the weekend. The Devinci Montreal is part of our passion to develop truly North American designed city bikes and we feel its offers a lighter, stronger, more rust-resistant and comfortable bike than most of its European competition. Very limited edition, only 300 made!” 


2 Road Holland Jerseys

(value: $120 each)

We make serious and stylish cycling wear. Serious because cycling demands clothes that fit well, perform well, and last. Stylish because we believe riders shouldn’t look like ad-emblazoned corporate team clowns just because they are on two wheels.

 


fireball2 MonkeyLectric M210 spoke lights

(value: $40 each)

Show your Style! The M210 Monkey Light is a rugged, practical, high performance bicycle light that keeps you visible in all weather conditions. The M210 straps to your spokes and displays brilliant patterns on your spinning bike wheel. Show your style with cutting edge themes designed by our electronic artists.    

 


   

Roots Canada travel pouches

(value: $50 each)

Roots has donated 5 of these great leather travel pouches:

Keep all your personal items personal in this compact Canadian-made leather kit, great for holding onto shaving accessories or toiletries. 


revolution-on-dvd5 Revolution Movie BluRay DVDs – donated by Roots Canada

(value: $25 each)

Toronto filmmaker Rob Stewart turns his camera from the saving the oceans — as he did with 2006 film-fest favourite Sharkwater — to the rest of the planet with Revolution.  Inspired by a question from the audience at a Hong Kong screening of Sharkwater, where a student wonders why Stewart is so worried about saving sharks when it looks like the oceans will be devoid of life by 2048, Stewart sets off to find answers.

NEWS: Nearby bikeshare station may raise your home’s value

Having a bike share station outside your front door might do more than give you a convenient way to ride to work — it might also boost the value of your home. According to a new study from McGill University, residential units in Montreal are worth more if they’re close to a Bixi station, Montreal’s […]

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. […]

OH YEAH: Easy Bikes – A New Name for Upright Bikes?

Interesting article from Momentum Mag from earlier this month: Did the Wall Street Journal just rename the most accessible, useful, and comfortable of all bicycle styles? Upright bicycles, sometimes referred to by Momentum Mag as city bikes, are hands down the best style of bicycle for daily use. A relaxed frame geometry and swept-back handlebars combine to […]
