UTC Partners With Bike Chattanooga To Design A Bike

Students Submit Bike Art To Be Featured On 5 Bike Chattanooga Bikes

Wednesday, August 27, 2014

The UTC and Bike Chattanooga Bicycle Transit System invite UTC students to create a unique bike wrap. The winning design will be featured on five Bike Chattanooga bikes.

The “Moc My Ride” bike design contest is part of this year’s UTC’s Homecoming Celebration. Students will submit bike art based on what being a Chattanooga Moc means to them, what inspires them to ride, and what makes Chattanooga so unique and a cool place to live.  

The specially designed bike will be revealed during the Mocs’ Homecoming Pep Rally in Miller Plaza on Oct. 3.  The design and artist will be acknowledged on stage by Scrappy, and the winning design will be publicly displayed throughout the city on five bikes and highlighted on the Bike Chattanooga website and social media. 

The “Moc My Ride” bike design contest will accept submissions through Sept. 10. A representative from Bike Chattanooga, Chattanooga Transportation Department, UTC University Relations, UTC Athletics, UTC student-athletes, and UTC Student Government Association will choose the top five bike art design finalists. Students will cast their final vote for their favorite bike design Sept. 15-23.  The top five finalists will be notified and invited to the UTC Homecoming Pep Rally at Miller Plaza on Oct. 3 where the winner will be announced.

 The winner of the “Moc My Ride” contest will receive:
- 2 year Bike Chattanooga Annual Membership
- $25 Gift Certificate to The Blue Plate
- $10 Gift Certificate to Bluff View Art District and Restaurants
- 4 3-day Bike Chattanooga Passes to share

- Satisfaction of having their design chosen and having it placed on five Bike Chattanooga bikes around the city for the fall semester

To participate in the “Moc My Ride” bike design contest, current UTC students can visit http://www.gomocs.com/quest/Questionaire.dbml?QID=259721&DB_OEM_ID=17700 to receive the toolkit and directions for submitting bike art.
