Sweet new license plate for WA

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Haha...maybe its subliminal messaging for people to go to the University of Washington, which is state funded. If I got the plate I would color in his shorts with a Sharpie. If you have a red Sharpie, you could even turn his jersey into a Saunier Duval sponsorship

These have been out for a little while. The owner of my LBS has a set on his van. I'm planning on picking up a set when it's time to renew my tabs in September.

I like the idea of a cyclist plate. I am not crazy about the clip art inspired rider, but I guess you have got to start somewhere.

I am guessing that if the plate design was open as a design competition, we would see some really cool designs. Just an idea.

Here's South Carolina's:


BUT, it's indirectly for bicycle advocacy. In SC, a nonprofit can apply for a special tag for its members. The Palmetto Cycling Coalition is the leading advocacy organization in the state, and applied for this tag. The requist 1000 pentioners were fairly easy to come by, but you still need to be a member of the non-profit to get the tag. A portion of the extra fee goes to the non-profit.

I put a set of the WA bike plates on my car a few months ago. Of the $30/year fee, $28 goes to the Bicycle Alliance of Washington to support bike advocacy. Not only do I support the cause, but the $28 is tax deductible, too.
