Bike Carmel announces name of new mascot

CARMEL, IN

After more than 650 exciting entries, Bike Carmel is pleased to announce the name of its new mascot, Spokes! Congratulations to Jan Fulmer of New Palestine, as she was randomly selected from the more than 80 entries suggesting the name Spokes. Jan won a $100 Old Spaghetti Factory gift card, donated by Good Day Carmel.

                The Spokes mascot character is a friendly dog that will be outfitted in a Bike Carmel performance t-shirt, bike shorts, bike gloves, helmet and shoes. Throughout the year, the Bike Carmel mascot will make appearances at Bike Carmel rides, Carmel Clay Schools, CarmelFest, the Carmel Farmers Market and various events throughout the City of Carmel. The purpose of the mascot is to raise awareness of bike safety and cycling in general.

                The City is looking for interested and enthusiastic persons who want perform as the mascot or act as the mascot’s handler and assistant. If you are interested, please contact Kayla Arnold atkarnold@carmel.in.gov. Please note that performers and handlers must be 18 years of age and able to pass a background check. 

                Spokes was made possible thanks to a generous donation from the Rollfast Foundation, anon-profit organization dedicated to bringing joy to the lives of children, opening the doors of opportunity for youth, working to eradicate the stigma of mental health issues and getting people rolling in an effort to end suicide.
