Calling All Artists, Designers, and People Who Like to Doodle

Pedals2People is looking for submissions from local artists to adorn spoke cards for this year’s SpokeFest. SpokeFest debuted as Spokane’s own bike festival in 2008. Last year, over 1700 people registered. This September 12th, SpokeFest is anticipating many more participants, and they want to give all those who register a fun momento.

The spoke cards will include your work and your name. They will be distributed to several thousand enthusiastic cyclists, and your card might just become a highly sought-after trading card ; ,,) Here’s what we’re looking for in this year’s design:

  1. Must have SpokeFest 2010 in the design
  2. When sending a digital image, best if the quality is at least 300 dpi (dots per inch) and no smaller than 4 inches by 4 inches.
  3. Original artwork can be scanned, but should be 8.5×11″ or smaller
  4. Can be full-color or BW
  5. Look at the SpokeFest and Pedals2People sites to get an idea about what your work is representing
  6. Email your work or questions to
  7. Must be submitted by July 15

More than one design may be chosen to represent SpokeFest, Pedals2People and bike merriment.

Warming Up

With the weather warming up, you might be getting ready to ride more. Looking for something different? We have a nice, lightweight Bridgestone road bike from the 80’s. Also a Chicago-made, Columbus tubing, Schwinn frame set waiting to be built into a bike. Stop by our shop this week and check out the new stuff.
