“Bicycle Friendly” Sticker Initiative

You may have seen mention of this on other bike blogs, but it’s worth sharing here, too.

Dave Grigsby, cycling coach for Lindsey Wilson College in Kentucky, has come up with a great way to both spread bicycling friendliness and help fund his team’s efforts by selling “Bicycle Friendly” stickers. Here’s a short video describing the initiative:

Place one of these stickers in a prominent location…on your mailbox, business storefront or anywhere else cyclists are likely to see them — and cyclists in need will know that it is safe for them to stop for help!

I am hoping to get some more information from Mr. Grigsby — how he came up with the idea and some details about his cycling team — in the next few days. In the meantime, check out the website at Wearebikefriendly.com (still under construction, but more details are added every day).

    Years ago, there was a motorcycle blog,that sent out Biker Friendly stickers, to apply to your car, truck, whatever, and the idea, was that if a biker from out of town broke down, or were run over/off the rode by cars, or just being idiots, I suppose, you would come to their aid. Tools, shop space, or a bit of medical care, just to help bikers of the world out. My wife still has the stickers on her Isuzu Rodeo. Been 5 years or so. And the stickers were rather small.

    One way those rural folks could prove that they are cyclist friendly is if they’d just find a way to keep their dogs from chasing us. :)

    Great kickoff to a Happy Holiday Season!
