One to the letters in this week's issue gives a link to a site (not looked at it yet - but could be of interest :wink:

www.bv.com.au

It's about Australia's "Share The Road" campaign - and it seems the driving contingent amongst Oz cyclists (strewth - fair go - mate 8-) ) have designed a sticker for their own cars - yellow sign saying "Watch Out For The Cyclist!"

CW say there are some similar stickers from www.givecyclistsroom.co.uk

CW higfhlights "Give Cyclists Room" this week and they point out this also caused one reader toi reminisce ....over a campaign from 1981 run by the excellent French Cycling Mag (Miroir du Cyclisme") - a fave with those relatives of mine.. :lol:

Bernard Hinault - the ace of his day was behind a similar sticky -

"Soyez sympa - pensez aux cyclistes"

(BE Nice - THINK of the Cyclists)

So nothing new here - but as with COAST - these should be added to the THINK! series.

Simple messaging works - :wink:

We all remember "Clunk Click" /"Weaver Bird" /"Amber Gambler" / "Don't Dazzle - Dip" and they worked
