Had an idea and wonder what you think. Would this help in awareness of scope of biking commuters?
Have local bike groups contact local TV stations and ask for 10 second forecast for bike commuters.
When contact TV station, need
-- support of local bike org and not just one rider
-- census data for your area on number of bike commuters
-- translation for math challenged, for every 4 buses you see, there is one bike commuter
-- total number of bike commuters, probably between 25,000 to 80,000+
-- clarification of what asking for:
-- AM rain/moisture prediction during morning commute, i.e. at 6:45 am and broadcast between 6:00am and 6:10 am
-- PM rain/moisture prediction during afternoon commute, i.e. at 4:30pm and broadcast between 6:00am and 6:10 am
I'm thinking this would provide the following benefits:
1-- alert drivers there are bicycle commuters
2-- let us know early enough whether to dress for rain/snow or not this day.
