Save a Life Watch for Bikes Campaign
Bike Cleveland, in partnership with several local bike shops, has launched the “Save a Life. Watch for Bikes.” campaign.
The campaign is a grassroots effort to raise the awareness of the growing number of people on bikes in our region, the campaign provides bright yellow yard signs for people to place in their yards reminding motorists to drive safely and watch for bikes.
If you want a yard sign you can pick them up at a number of local bike shops, including:

We simply ask that if you pick up a sign that you place it in your front yard this fall and again in the spring to maximize the campaigns effectiveness. When you put your sign in your yard take a picture of it (be creative if you want) and post it on Faceboook using the hashtags #WatchForBikesCLE and #RideTogetherCLE.
This campaign was started as a response to the number of car -vs- bicycle crashes that took place the beginning of this summer.
