In the wake of yet another cyclist being killed by a motor vehicle - a hit and run no less - with (so far) very minimal consequence for the driver, I wonder if bumper stickers are worth the effort - details about the crash
that killed Roy Sekreta are available or I have posted a copy of an article about the crash on my Duke City Fix web page.
The bumper sticker idea was born late last fall, after James Quinn was killed and in memory of Paula Higgins, a cycling team mate of mine for many years who also died in a car vs. bike incident in 2006. My cycling team Olev Rapido felt we had to start somewhere to improve motorist/cyclist interactions. Bumper stickers are what we have right now. They bumper say "Share the Road" and "5 Feet to Pass: It's the Law" and show a car and a bicycle appropriately occupying the road together. They are just waiting for you to pick them up and prominently display them.
You can go to our webstie
to see the bumper stickers and a complete list of the bike shops that are helping us spread these cycling friendly messages.
These bumper stickers are free, but if we want to see more than the 2000 bumper sticker we initially had printed on display in the greater metro Albuquerque area of 800,000+ people, we need your help. If you want to make a donation, go to our Bicycling Awareness Initiative
