archival and resource material for human powered recumbent tricycles

Share the Road with Trikes!

From fellow trike pilot and nomad Steven Telck, comes this new idea for world governments to contemplate. I like it – hope it catches on, although I won’t be holding my breath. Feel free to share this sign as needed. Learn about Steven and his ICE Adventure overland trike HERE. Click the image for larger view, then once again for an even larger image!

  1. Did Steven’s ‘creativity’ on the SHARE THE ROAD sign mention that the trike design & rendering is of Rickey Horwitz’s Spitfire trike design? Perhaps it’s the square sign shape turned 45 degrees that Steven has created! http://www.hellbentcycles.com/

  2. Clever and I like it, but “Share the Road” signs have fallen out of favor. It seems most motorists, in their motor-centric minds, think they mean “get out of my way” and are directed at cyclists. That’s exactly the opposite of their original intention.

    The current preferred signage is the “Bicycles may use full lane” signs, which they hope are less ambiguous.

    There are still a lot of the “Share the Road” signs out there and will be for some time, so the trike version is still appropriate. I’d hang it on my wall!

  3. Howdy Al,
    I have noticed those “Bicycles may use full lane” signs online in photos. That would be great if those could be posted universally, but of course, our bankrupt governments may be a while in making them a priority (in our lifetimes?). Change comes at a snail’s pace, but at least it’s coming!

  5. Hello Martyn,

    Simply click the image in this post once, and the larger version of it will appear on your screen. You can then click the image again to get the full size, which can be printed, or emailed (or taken on a flash drive) to a business that makes prints and posters, which can be laminated if desired. See if that works.
