Cyclists Needed for PSA @ The Depot Wed. 5:30

The Bike Nazi just reposted the following bulletin from the Nampa Bicycle & Pedestrian Citizens Advisory Group. Cyclists are needed to assist Kristin Armstrong with the production of a cycling PSA:

BULLETIN! Boise-area cyclists needed!
from The Bike Nazi

Wednesday June 24 at 5:30 p.m.
Please be at the Boise Depot.

Our Cycling communities [sic] best voice, Kristin Armstrong, will be filming a PSA about Cycling Safety on Idaho Roads.

She Needs as MANY Co-starring Cyclists as we can get to be there to help make the point that Cyclists are just members of the community. Carpenters, students, doctors, neighbors taxpayers, moms, kids, coaches etc. This means you. And pass this email on.

If you ride on Idaho roads we want you there.

Creating this PSA is one step in the solution to the tragedies that cycling families are dealing with. A Bike safety silent ride and Rally is being planned for July 6.

You can be there in Cycling clothes with your bike. Or you can come straight from your Job in your work clothes.

You can wear Fancy Team Spandex or Baggy Commuter Pants or anything else.

You can have a 30 year old 3 speed or the newest swanky Carbon Fiber Rig or other human powered rig

If you are a Cyclist Please We want you at the Depot at 5:45 On Wednesday June 24. Bring a friend.

Get there safely, ride responsibly, drive carefully.

And thank CableOne for donating the production of the PSA

Cycling clothes? Sigh. At least they acknowledge that real people ride bicycles. It's nice to see some in Boise considering cycling a real transportation option. Look for me in my street clothes. If I see you I'll buy us beer afterward as a thank you and to serve as a shot of courage to lubricate your ride home.
