BBP Presents: Boston Red Socks! – Spoke Cards

This month for Boston Red Socks! we enlisted the graphic prowess of Bike Partier and local graphic designer Stephanie Bianchi, who summed up the awesomeness of wearing red socks in Boston for our spoke cards:

We asked Stephanie what her bike’s spirit animal was, and she said:

Freddie Mercury. He was pretty flamboyant when I bought him – leopard print seat, moustache handlebars… everything!

Which is pretty fitting given if you ever meet Steph in person you’ll notice the rainbow of creativity shooting out of her head:
