In a City with 2 Major League Baseball teams, Citi Bike has just released a bunch of bikes into the system that are completely branded with the colors and logo of just one of them, the Mets.

This morning we had the pleasure of joining Curtis Granderson, Citi Bike member and NY Mets outfielder, at the Central Park South and 6th Ave Citi Bike station to kick off an exciting sweepstakes with Citi, in celebration of its ongoing partnership with the New York Mets. Together we’ve wrapped 50 Citi Bikes with Mets colors, which will be available throughout the Citi Bike system for the month of July.

Over the next month, you can snap a photo with the bike an tag it appropriately to be entered into a contest where you can win Mets related items.

Every day, from July 1st to July 29th, fans will have the opportunity to win special Citi Perks and Mets-themed prizes, including game tickets and branded backpacks and baseball hats. At the conclusion of the sweepstakes, one participant will win the chance to throw out the first pitch at Citi Field.

The rules are pretty simple:

To enter the sweepstakes, fans will need to take a photo of one of 50 Mets-wrapped bicycles and share on Twitter or Instagram using #CitiBikeSweepstakes. One winner will be selected at random each day for the duration of the Citi Bike Sweepstakes.

It does beg the question though: When will we see a Yankees themed bike?
