Everyone comments on my HHCMF shirts

I went to the clinic at 6:30am last week and the lab assistant said, "If I wasn't awake yet, I'm definately awake now after seeing that shirt.". So I got the opportunity to advocate safety of driver and cyclist.

Yesterday I walked my bike thru Rona cause they don't have bike racks, and the cute little cashier mentioned the shirt. I said something like, "I'd rather be seen than hit.". She asked if I road on the roads or the sidewalk. She was surprised to learn that riding on the sidewalk is illegal.

Not a lot of content here, just wanted to share.

+1 for the cashier.

My HHCMF shirt makes me pretty visible too. Too bad my backpack blocks the logo.

This Thread Is Worthless Without Pics Of Cute Little Cashier

Heh, I went into a bike store the other day, wearing an HHCMF shirt, with my neon green bike. The proprieter said "If anyone hits you its because they meant to."

+1 for the cashier with or w/o the shirt.


My coworkers who bike to work in cotton have commented on how bright and visible my HHCMF shirts are. Unfortunately I don't wear them in the summer. The fabric is heavier than my summer weight jerseys and I'd suffocate. I'll probably get them out in mid/late September.
