BIKE SLOGANS

Andrew's collection of bicycle advocacy slogans:
My favorite by far to date:
"Honk if you love bikes!" - which I first heard a decade ago used by SF's Critical Mass.  I love the double bind it puts angry cagers in.

PATRIOTIC ANGLE:

  • Slogans:
    • Love America? Ride a bike.
    • Bikes fight terrorism.
    • Yes we can use less oil.
    • No blood for oil.
  • Talking Points:
    • Bicycles lead to an American future of liberty and security, simultaneously freeing us from foreign entanglements and strengthening our people.
    • Oil addiction leads directly to mid-east entanglements, targeting by terrorists, and massive casualties of multiple wars. Bikes set us free.
    • Cars are a top killer with over 100 U.S. deaths a day, the single greatest threat to life after disease. Bikes are the cure.
    • With gas prices skyrocketing and the climate warming, naked cyclists are an inevitability. Welcome to tomorrow.
    • With a future this healthy, free and beautiful possible through bikes, one would have to hate America to drive.
