Fort Collins Clothing Company Gears up for the 25th Annual Bike to Work Day
Fort Collins, CO, May 14, 2012
Northern Colorado bike month is back and that means so are our Bike T-shirts and Bike Delivery programs. Akinz Boardwear, a clothing company based in Fort Collins, Colorado, were the first Fort Collins clothing company to deliver orders by bike during the June 2010 Bike to Work Day event.
Akinz announced that it will once again offer their bike delivery option for local online customers this year. â€œThe Akinz team has so much fun meeting our customers and supporting the bike culture in Fort Collins, we decided we had to continue with bike delivery,â€ said Suzanne Akin, founder of Akinz Boardwear.
As last year, $2 of each Bike to Work t-shirt sold between now and the end of June (Colorado bike month) will be donated to the Fort Collins Bike Co-op. New this year, Bike delivery will be available starting now through the end of June. Every order within Fort Collins will automatically be delivered by bike via Rob’s Bike Service (Check out their website or on Facebook). Instead of continuing to offer free bike delivery, $2 of your delivery fee will be donated to FC Bikes. Therefore, with every bike t-shirt ordered online now through bike month, Fort Collins shoppers will help support four different local organizations (Akinz, FC Bike Co-op, FC Bikes, and Rob’s Bike Service).
In addition, we are teaming up with Big Shot Bikes and Fort Collins Veterinary Clinic to host a breakfast station on Bike to Work Day, June 27th for the 3rd year. All the deliveries that day will be made by us as they have been in the past. You can either buy online to let us know to deliver to a friend or stop by our breakfast station to send out a t-shirt for same day delivery on Bike to Work Day!
The current bike delivery area extends south from Vine to Harmony, and east from Taft Hill to Timberline. We will be kicking off Bike Month at FC Bike Co-op on First Friday of June… details TBA.
Letâ€™s make this year the biggest one yet !
