I Bike T.O. Shirts now at Outer Layer on Queen West

Outer Layer - 577 Queen West

Great news everyone.  I dropped off a load of mens and womens I Bike T.O. shirts at Outer Layer on Queen West this past weekend.  Outer Layer is at 577 Queen West, just east on Bathurst on the south side.

Outer Layer has been carrying I Bike T.O. shirts for a while now, and I could tell that they are pretty popular (aside from the fact that they keep ordering some) when I walked into the store with a box of shirts and the staff were all “Yay!  I Bike T.O. shirts!”

Outer Layer is one of those stores that I can’t stay too long in because I’d spend a mortgage payment in there.  It’s like someone took all the cool and geeky parts of the internet and made a store.  They also have an entertaining facebook page and twitter feed.

They have lots of bike stuff too.  I snapped a few photos of a few bike things while I was there – christmas cards, ornaments, glasses and skull bikelights… just a small selection of cool bike stuff there.

Go and check out the store and pick up a shirt if you need one. Yeah, you need one.

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!”

(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.

I Bike T.O. Profile: Erin

I spotted Erin’s shirt in her Twitter profile photo (@erintoop) a couple weeks ago, and asked if she wanted to be in an I Bike T.O. profile.  Lucky for us, she said yes!   (More info about I Bike T.O. Profiles at the bottom of this post).

Pictured below is Erin, and below the photo is why Erin loves biking and her shirt.

I had lived in Prince George and Edmonton for most of my life, where the cycling seasons are pretty short-lived, and so moving to Toronto was an awesome change. I love the fact that Don Johnson, my trusty steed, can get me almost everywhere I need to go in the city, just about year round.

On top of transporting me to and from work, cycling also plays a major role in life at work. I am a transportation engineer and I focus a lot of my energy on helping make urban transportation more sustainable. Conveniently,  sustainable and bikeable go hand-in-hand.

I bought my t-shirt last fall, during brunch at Grapefruit Moon (an excellent Annex brunch and beer joint, by the way). Grapefruit Moon awesomely displays these shirts above their bar, and after I spotted them, there was no doubt that I would be ordering a t-shirt to go.

In these polarized times for cycling in Toronto, I think the I Bike T.O. logo is a great and positive way to promote cycling in our city.

Below are some other I Bike T.O. Profiles.  If you have an I Bike T.O. shirt and want to be profiled, just email me and let me know.  If you don’t have a shirt, but want one, you can get them online, or at Outer Layer (577 Queen, near Bathurst), or email me… I may have one hanging around in your size.
