Teko, a maker of high performance outdoor, sports and everyday socks with a commitment to minimal ecological impact, is excited to announce the winner of their Tasmania sweepstakes! Teko offered employees of outdoor shops a chance to win a free trip for two to Tasmania. After a random drawing of all entries, Aubrey Siehl from Bicycle Garage Indy was selected as the winner and will be enjoying a fantastic, outdoor adventure trip for two! Destinations will include such breathtaking Tasmanian highlights as Cradle Mountain and Wine Glass Bay.

Aubrey, a retired U.S. Army helicopter mechanic, crew chief and pilot, started for Bicycle Garage Indy (BGI) in February 2004 as a product flow agent. He is excited to add Tasmania to the other 15 countries he has already seen. In his spare time, Aubrey is earning a degree in exercise science, personal training, and coaching, with a minor in psychology. Despite all of this, he still finds time for volunteering as a coach for the Butler University Cycling Team, road bike and mountain bike racing, camping, hunting, and hiking.

“I am so looking forward to seeing the natural beauty and splendor of Tasmania. I want to back pack, mountain bike, road bike, sail, swim, scuba dive and even drive the entire island, and only sleep on the way there and back.”


Teko uses Merino wool from one holistic and sustainable farm in Tasmania, Downie-Dungrove. As part of the trip, Aubrey will visit the farm to see how things are done “Down Under”. Teko also plans to offset all the greenhouse gases for the trip through buying carbon offsets.

Congratulations, Aubrey!!
