AS&R is proud and excited to have designed and created the first “Check for Bikes” clings in Spanish. The forward-thinking organization to order them was Richmond Police Department, who contracted us to make clings in both English and Spanish!
It is wonderful to see the commitment RPD has to the safety of its entire community by distributing customized “Check for Bikes” clings in both languages at local events. We hope other organizations follow RPD’s example.
More and more businesses have recently asked to carry AS&R’s “Check for Bikes” clings, designed to remind drivers to look twice and look again for cyclists on the road before opening their door or making any turns.
We really appreciate these local businesses/organizations who distribute
our clings to their customers and clients, showing a clear connection to their communities and concern for the safety of cyclists: Prins Chiropractic, Albany Mechanics Bank, Bay Area Kinderstube, Salon 1757, Dana Meyer Auto Care, Blue Heron Bikes, Wheels of Justice Albany, Marie Bowser Acupuncture, Whole Health Apothecary, Ivy Room, T324, Albany YMCA, St. Alban’s Episcopal Church and Church by the Side of the Road.
Be sure to stop in, thank them and pick up some clings when you walk or ride by!
Kudos to AS&R members Francesco Papalia for coming up with this safety initiative three years ago and Tod Abbott of Almost Everything Communications for his excellent design work. Thanks also to Oakland small business Golden Gate Print & Media Services for its timely and detail-oriented service.
Know any other organizations or businesses who would be interested in distributing clings to their members, customers or clients? For as little as $5, they can connect with their community and help cyclists like you ride more safely.
