Showing off an I Bike T.O. Shirt Winner!

You may remember that a few weeks ago we ran a “Twitter 5000″ contest to celebrate having 5000 followers on Twitter.  5 lucky people won I Bike T.O. shirts – @minx2012 @DavidDuttonCA @Peejaay18 @creativaty and @Lola_318

All the shirts have been ordered, and are starting to be delivered to the winners.   @Lola_318 did us a favour and snapped a photo of her wearing her shirt.   Looks great! :)

We are always looking for photos of people wearing their I Bike T.O. shirts – so let us know if you have one.

Win an I Bike T.O. T-Shirt!

If you’ve been following us on twitter, you know that we’re giving away 5 I Bike T.O. t-shirts in celebration of passing 5000 twitter followers a couple weeks ago (we’re already up to 5200 since then).

We thought we’d give everyone a heads-up about this today, as today is the last day of this contest.

We’ve been running this contest a little differently… we’re using a system called “Pay with a Tweet” to engineer it so that all you have to do to get to the t-shirt contest entry form is to tweet about the contest.

(don’t worry if you’re not on twitter – people on facebook can also share the contest on their facebook profile – you’ll see the option when you click the Pay with a Tweet button below)

To enter the contest and submit your name for a t-shirt, click this button:

If you haven’t seen our amazing I Bike T.O. shirts (where have you been?) using the logo we designed way back in 2006, here are just a few options of what you can pick out as your shirt (if you win).

Queen West BIA unveils new OCAD Bikeracks

Back in the spring of 2009, the Ontario College of Art and Design had a Gateway BikeStand competition, and while that contest chose a pretty distinctive winner (photo of winning design at right), the Queen West BIA thought all the designs were great and committed to working with OCAD students to create some new bikeracks for Queen Street West.

The time has come for the 14 new bikeposts to be unveiled, and they’ve released images of them (consisting of 4 designs):
