Significance of the Logo and Shirts
The inspiration from Kim and Karen extends into every aspect of Rock ‘n’ Ride, including the creation of the logo and t-shirts. The purple and yellow color combination is the blending of their two favorite colors. Kim’s was purple and Karen’s was yellow. The script for the Rock ‘n’ Ride logo and for the back of the t-shirt was created with Kim’s actual handwriting, pulling each letter directly from notes she had written. The bicycle is symbolic of Kim’s passion for riding, and was an activity that Karen enjoyed as well. The smiley faces that create the tires came from an encouraging letter that Karen had sent to Kim during her battle with cancer. She ended the letter with her signature smiley face which was copied exactly how she drew it. The smiley face is also placed at the end of the text on the back of the t-shirt.

We will have a limited supply of bike jersey’s available at the Registration Booth this year. These were created from the artist print that was created from our inaugural year, along with the Rock ‘n’ Ride logo and the writing that is on the back of our t-shirts.
