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!

Here is our first one (we’ll be releasing a 2nd in a couple hours…) and it’s courtesy of the nice and great people at Toronto-based Orontas, who, if you haven’t heard of them before, can be nicely summed up by this quote on their website:

We hold ourselves to an ethical standard that includes using sustainable and biodegradable materials that don’t come with skulls and crossbones.

So… what’s the contest?  Orontas has donated 7 BikeCare Prize Packs (each consisting of Lube and Cleaner, a $28 value) for us to give away (1 each day for the first 7 days of BikeMonth) starting TODAY!

How do you enter?  Just like with our I Bike T.O. t-shirt giveaway or our GreenLiving Show giveaway earlier this year, all you have to do to enter the contest is to share the contest on Twitter!

How do you do that? Just click the “Pay with a Tweet” graphic below and it’ll get you to sign in to Twitter, tweet about the contest, and then it’ll give you a link to the contest entry from, so you can give us your contact info if you win.

It’s as easy as that… and your entries will be good for the entire week of the contest… AND you can enter multiple times if you want to tweet about it on multiple days.  We’re easy like that.

If you’re interested in Orontas follow them on Twitter or Like them on Facebook.
