Having gone to so much work to design this stuff, I think I’ll take a moment to show you the fabulous items that will dispensed to those lucky recumbent riders with enough taste and discernment to come to my big tricycle party.
- Rally-themed Purple Sky Flag. Our first custom flag designed with help from the multi-talented Raina at TerraCycle:This lovely number features our HOT logo cowboy mingled deftly with our ESR logo wheel, spangled with reflective stars and of course a Texas icon, just to get everyone’s ego inflated. Safety with style!
- Rally t-shirt. Everyone needs another t-shirt, right? This one will be a silver-gray District brand t-shirt, which we brought in a sample of to make sure it was of good quality. I, for one, do not do cheap in this regard. The front features our new chicken roping graphics which I personally find cute and maybe someone else does too:
The back of the shirt will be where all our groovy sponsors will have their logos crammed. We’ll also have those badass Shootout trikes. I may be the only one here who remembers the 2010 Rally shirts, which I borrowed on for that Shootout image:
Not like anyone can see the back of your shirt when you are riding your recumbents
- Goodie bag. We mainly used the shirt images for the bag, but since Catrike sponsored the bag we gave them an extra bonus impression:
Pretty cool, huh? Of course the schwag is just a bonus. People mostly come for the Easy-ritos and the guy in the chicken suit.
