It’s that time of year when you bust out your bike for pleasant springtime rides and rock the newest Bicycle Coalition t-shirt on your ride.

We love working with local designers on our Artist Series each year. Each artist that we work with brings a fresh perspective and different connection to our work. Like our diverse community, each design feels unique but unified as an emblem of the movement we’re building to make bicycling a tool for safer, healthier, sustainable, and more equitable communities.

So without further ado, we present to you the latest Artist Series shirt!

Our t-shirts are a member-exclusive. Want to proudly rock that you’re part of the movement for better bicycling? Join or renew your membership before March 31st. Thanks for investing in the Bicycle Coalition’s work!

Meet the Designer:

Destiny Simmons, the designer of our latest t-shirtDestiny (who also goes by Traci), is a Philadelphia based multimedia artist, and photographer. Their preferred mediums range from traditional to digital medium. They are a soon-to-be graduate of Philadelphia’s Hussian College, School of Art.

Destiny has worked with a few non-profits and currently works with Key Medium as the Digital Designer & Multimedia Specialist. You can follow them on Instagram @kismet_ to view more of their work.

“The main goal for the illustration was to create something fun, bold and dynamic. The design is simple and straightforward. It gives the feeling of motion and echoes the idea that the Bicycle Coalition is leading the local bicycling and infrastructure movement.”

After graduating from Swarthmore College, Ashley moved to Philadelphia to work in nonprofit development and communications as a Philly Fellow. She was introduced to the Bicycle Coalition’s work in her first week of the fellowship through an Urban Riding Basics class. She did not take up bicycling in the city until getting involved with the Women Bike PHL community, which catalyzed her to shed her fear of riding in traffic and get on a bike. Ashley’s bike has served as a powerful tool, and she is excited to share the healing and empowering nature of bicycling with others. You can find Ashley riding her blue Breezer to the Headhouse farmer’s market, or her Fuji Sportif when she’s road racing as an alum of the Women Bike PHL Racing Development program.
