Road Rule #1: Don’t Be A Jerk

There’s a great article in the Wall Street Journal about the problems New York City is facing by having tons more cyclists on their streets (thanks to large amounts of new bikelanes and cycling infrastructure on their streets).

BikingToronto loves this short but sweet message (sweet, if you say it nicely enough) so much that we made a fun-loving little graphic that would be fun to use and share. :)

Let’s play nice out there.
