World Bicycle Relief & Threadless Contest Winner


The Challenge

Create a bike-themed design for a messenger bag and t-shirt.

For some, bicycles are an essential accessory to achieving ultimate hipness. For others, bikes provide healthy and affordable transportation to work and play. For students, health care workers, and business owners in Africa, bikes are vehicles to better healthcare, education, and economic opportunities.

Since 2005, World Bicycle Relief has distributed more than 120,000 bicycles. Those bikes have benefited more than 600,000 individuals by shortening travel time to clean water, education, healthcare, markets, and jobs. 25% of the proceeds from the winning messenger bag and tee will go towards the organization to bring more bikes to more communities. Use the same design for both, or create two complementary designs.

On top of the cash prize for the printed design, the winner will also help design their own custom Surly bike with SRAM components built by Iron Cycles and worth up to $3,000. So knock off those training wheels and get to work!
