"I LOOK FOR BIKES" and "I SHARE THE ROAD BUMPER STICKERS"

Fellow Chainlinkers,The greatest threat to safe bicyclists is negligent motorists. That is a simple fact. With this in mind I wanted to do something that related to bicycle safety that could also incorporate motorists so we came up with these bumper stickers. One says "I Look For (Bikes)" and the other says "I Share The Road."The goal is for bike-friendly motorists (or even converted non-friendly motorists) to display these bumper stickers and signal to motorists that they are on the look-out…See More

Hi Mike! Good to hear from you- all is well, moving on and making the best of life. Thanks for you help- M

Yo Mike,

I don't think the coffee meeting format will need me to pull strings but I'll let ya know if I think a 'friendly' follow up would help.

I'm thinkin' this to be more of an introduction to LOOK for the 3 officials and to sorta feel'em out for contact info and potential leverage as we move forward with the education campaign.

Thanks for the offer and if you can make it the extra body would be handy since the hour and a half is going to be a challenge to hit all 3 since they will be burdened with many constituent concerns.
