Road Signs to Bring Awareness for Bicyclists Survey

B' Spokes: At the risk of influencing your answer, when I returned to Baltimore I saw a lot of "Bikes Share the Road" signs, I'm not sure if I am all that happy with that message. If I had a choice of being on a nicer car friendly road (a.k.a. Bike Friendly) where this sign was not needed, I would be there, otherwise I want a sign that says something along the lines "Motorist, please stay on your designated motorway known as interstates. We paid a lot of money for those so please use them but if you must use other roads please remember when not using the interstates you are on PUBLIC roads where all members of the public have a right-of-way whether they are in a motor vehicle or not, they are not your roads exclusively, so act accordingly and yield to others."

OK that is a bit wordy and would never fit on a sign, so that's what was nice about the "Share The Road" campaign... it fit on a sign but without a lot of public awareness efforts it does not often translate to anything close to my long version.

Like most people I live a hectic life and who has the time for much exercise? Thanks to xtracycle now I do. By using my bike for daily activities I can get things done and get an hour plus work out in 15 minutes extra of my time, not a bad deal and beats taking the extra time going to the gym. In case you are still having trouble being motivated; the National Center of Disease Control says that inactivity is the #2 killer in the United States just behind smoking. ( ) Get out there and start living life! I can carry home a full shopping cart of groceries, car pool two kids or just get lost in the great outdoors camping for a week. Well I got go, another outing this weekend.
