One Of My Pics In Momentum Magazine

leave a comment »

I have a love/hate relationship with Flickr. Hate, mostly because of the new site design – which is far less intuitive. Love, because it’s great for sharing and getting your images out there.

One great example is getting another pic of mine published in the May/June 2014 issue of Momentum Magazine:

Of course, I took that pic to help promote Bikes May Use Full Lane lapel pin sales. Here is the original:

Bikes May Use Full Lane Lapel Pins – For Sale – Again

with 3 comments

Bikes May Use Full Lane

BACK IN INVENTORY – BY POPULAR DEMAND!

These high quality lapel pins were developed to pay tribute to the bike friendly road signs found along many roads in the US. The original batch was a small, limited run of that sold out quickly. Great news! I was able take part in a larger run and now they are available for you.

If you are a bicyclist, bike supporter or bike advocate, show your support for Sharing The Road, by wearing a Bikes May Use Full Lane Lapel Pin.

The goal of selling these pins is to help spread the word and not make a profit. Prices have been set to recover any up-front costs, time and expenses. I will try to use any extra proceeds towards new inventory.

Here are the updated details:

Price: $3 each – Originally $5
Shipping: $5.60 USPS Flat Rate for each order (Even though these are light, the US Post Office charges that much to ship a bubble envelope.) Sorry, USA shipping only. If you are not in the States, leave a comment below and I’ll try to make arrangements.
How: Click over to my Pop-Up Store for order information.
Details: These are custom die struck iron soft enamel pins in a .75 inch size with one military clutch attachment.

Signs Of The Times

leave a comment »

Here are just a few of my favorite traffic signs around town. The city of Richardson, Texas has done a lot for cyclists. Unfortunately, there’s a lot more that needs to be done before we can be considered an official Bike Friendly Community from the League of American Bicyclists. With our bike trails, bike lanes and bike friendly streets, we’re further along than most north Texas cities.

Having these signs at every major road, coming into town, is really nice too. They are a good reminder of what Texas drivers should already know about using Texas roads.

Bikes May Use Full Lane Lapel Pins

UPDATE: SOLD OUT!  BACK IN INVENTORY!

I had these lapel pins made for a holiday project. When you have a custom built piece made, the more you order, the lower the unit price.

That being said, I have about 30 extra that I can sell. Do you want one (or more)? Here are the details:

Price: $3 each – Originally $5 (I’m not profiting from this, just trying to make some of my money back.)
Shipping: $5.60 USPS Flat Rate for up to 4 pins (Even though these are light, the US Post Office charges that much to ship a bubble envelope.)
How: Click here for order information.
Details: These are custom die struck iron soft enamel pins in a .75 inch size with one military clutch attachment.

This is a one time run the second run on this.

UPDATE: SOLD OUT!  BACK IN INVENTORY!
There was enough interest, so I had another order made.

Visual Communication – Bike Signage In My Neighborhood

with 2 comments

Bike Route

In addition to all the new bike lanes and multi-purpose trails that are available in Richardson, Texas – there are now some new bike signs going up.

Maybe it’s because they’re new or maybe because they do a better job at visually communicating to road users, but I feel these are working harder to promote cycling awareness than the old signs seen around Dallas (see below).

Aside from stating the obvious, these signs are letting folks know that Richardson is a bike friendly city and that they recognize that there are all types of riders, that use all types of routes.
