The Contest had 3 Objectives:

1. Bring a social media buzz and excitement to cycling in Brampton.
2. Engage the arts community in the Community Cycling Program and attract new program participants.
3. Allow Brampton residents who are not regular cyclists to experience the pleasures of cycling through art.
