Favorite cycling bumper stickers

I'm looking for a good cycling advocacy bumper sticker... besides the standard "share the road" and I haven't found one I like yet. So post your favorites.

Here's mine (but I've only seen it as a pic online... not for sale anywhere.)

If you own several bikes, surely you need to get another bumper sticker for your bikes. "My other bicycle is a bicycle."

In WW2, Woodie Guthrie painted the words "This machine kills fascists" on his guitar. Since we're in a war with terrorists these days, I kinda want to put on my bike...

"This machine kills terrorists".

I guess if it's something you're putting on your car, maybe...

"Cycling kills terrorists".

are sold as stickers at BAUFL.org


I actually adapted one of their graphics into my own functional fender sign.

There's actually discussion going on about it here.

I always liked the sticker that said, "Environmental stickers don't mean (fecal matter) when they're on a car." I suppose it would be pretty funny if it were on a car.
My sister-in-law put a bumper sticker on an old, largely unused pick-up truck of mine a couple decades ago that said something to the effect of, "Warning, this vehicle emits many toxic chemicals including benzene and carbon monoxide and is severely damaging the environment and changing the climate."

I saw one that could be a bike sticker on a car. It said something along the lines of "People who wander aren't always lost". Good for those of use who somehow end up in the middle of a dirt field on the outskirts of the city.

I found a least favorite:



In my less mature days, the bike-sized "my other ride is your mom" would have struck me as hilarious.

I've seen that saying on a bike sticker on a bike before. I'd like to get one for mine too.

Given the popularity of the smug "one less car" sticker, I have allways thought that "Its not one less car if you can't afford to drive" would be good. on a car or bicycle.

I like that "burn fat, not oil sticker". Nice. "Cars run on money and make you fat, Bikes save you money and run on fat" - did I read that on these forums? I want a tee shirt that says that.
