BIXI Toronto is 300 short of the 1000 subscription target (getting there!) A bit more work needs to be done. A little bit more promotion can do some good, but we noticed there aren't a whole lot of videos showing the best of BIXI Toronto.
In order to encourage some better videos I Bike T.O. will give a $100 gift certificate (for a popular store still to be announced) to the person who makes the best video showing the best features of BIXI Toronto. The deadline is Wednesday, October 13 when we will decide the winner. Send links to your submissions through the contact form.
We will feature all videos on the site as they come in. We prefer that they be uploaded to Youtube, Vimeo, Blip.tv or similar services.
You might need to know where the next BIXI demos are going to be located. The demo locations and dates are listed on the BIXI Toronto page in Facebook as well as on BikeEvents.TO
Note that this is not an official BIXI Toronto contest, but just this blog's attempt to get better video.
Here's what's out there right now. Someone just posted this video that explains a bit of how BIXI works. I would have liked to see someone take the bike out and ride it and leave out all the bizarre transitions. Not bad, could be better.
Then there is this 2 year-old Centennial College journalism student video that interviews the BIXI VP, Alain Ayotte. BIXI brought their station at the invitation of TCAT and the bike union. It's not bad, but it's old.
I'm sure you can do better! Send in your submissions by 5pm October 13 in order to be eligible for the $100 gift certificate!
