BikingToronto has 7,000+ Followers on Twitter!

Wow.  Last week we passed 7,000 followers over on Twitter.

Our followers include tons of Toronto people, as well as bike-related accounts from all over the “Twitter-verse”… which allows BikingToronto to not only keep them updated on the stuff happening in Toronto, but also helps keep us informed on what’s going on.

Looking back, our Twitter account passed 4,000 followers back in the first week of September last year, so we’ve added 3,000 followers in just the past year!  That’s like 8 people every single day!  Woo! Hoo!

It’s exciting, no?

Anyhow, go check out our Twitter account if you’re not already following us.  We tweet (and re-tweet) out a lot of links there that often don’t make it to the blog (because they’re either about other cities, or only tangentially related to cycling), so it’s a great resource to follow.

(If you prefer Facebook over / in addition to Twitter, you can “Like” our facebook page too).

Welcome September! Here’s some Autumn biking inspiration!

Yesterday, we asked a question on Twitter:

Today’s the last day of August. Tell us why you’re looking forward to biking in the fall in Toronto!

Here are some of the responses we received… let them inspire you to do lots of biking in our great city in (arguably) the best season for biking.

because my hair won’t be stuck to my head and helmut in a mass of sweaty blond locks (LisaAMuse)

Any time is a good time to bike. Just dress appropriately. (biketree)

I’m looking forward to the nice cool fall winds for those longer rides (McGabeGabe)

Because I can bike in my work clothes without sweating like crazy! No need to bring shorts. (RiverdaleMac)

Can’t wait for the cooler weather and that unmistakable autumn smell in the air! (indeedemma)


What about biking in the fall are YOU looking forward too? Let us and your fellow cyclists know in the comments below!

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).
