Would you be quickerbybike?

Quickerbybike.com is a campaign to promote cycling to non-cyclists
& decent cycling to existing cyclists.

If you commute to work or school but not by bike,
would you consider switching?

It's probably quicker, healthier, more friendly, more independent, cheaper, quieter & brighter.

If you already ride, would you promote cycling via your shorts?

If you ride like a bit of a wally, running red lights & annoying other road users,

would you wear the shorts and ride decently?

TC reports from Lanzarote training camp

The airport at Lanzarote is a funny old place. After a week at La Santa it's all too easy to turn in to a bit of a 'Body Fascist' - The Easy Jet queue brings an abrupt end to this experience and I realise how very different the lifestyles of the average British Citizen are.

My interest in Quicker By Bike has grown to the point that I now feel actively compelled to make a difference through this site. What better illustration of the importance of this movement can be found than the one I have just witnessed. The faces say it all. My companions beam with a healthy glow and as I fly back through the night I'm looking forward to jumping on the single speed and heading in to work.

Hills, headwinds and hot climbs were nothing to a set of strong commuting legs. Cycling to work is free training and healthiness is happiness. Join the revolution my friends!

quickerbybike car stickers?

It might sound daft but a car sticker delivers the message to just the same place that a logo on a bum does. Stickers are a bit cheaper than shorts. So stickers mean the message gets delivered to the right place a lot more often.

Vote for your slogan of choice before we get them produced. Any feedback or abuse gratefully received.

It's worth considering that the quickerbybike.com logo already conveys a lot of the message, so we don't want to duplicate that in the sticker slogan.
