Share the love on the road with a stay awesome sticker

Let the two-wheeled community know you care even when you're driving...

We've seen a lot of negativity in recent times towards cyclists. But let's face it: cyclists are awesome. All of you.

To celebrate that fact we've produced these lovely waterproof vinyl stickers to spread the love, inspired by an exisiting design you may have seen about. Stick one on your car or work vehicle (seek permission from the vehicle owner first... ed) and let everyone on two wheels know that you care, even when you're driving. And the world will be a happier place as a result. We promise!

Stay awesome stickers are available in A5 or A6 sizes. You can get a big  discount if you buy in bulk and distribute them among your friends. To order one, or some, just head over to the road.cc shop. And stay awesome!

I think these are great. Unfortunately it looks like you've sold out of the ones I was after. Will you be getting any more A6 and window stickers?

Got my ten car stickers yesterday; 2 for me - 4 for one lot pre-promised, 2 more to fellow cyclists (one of whom was nearly wiped out today)... Only 2 to go!

How about one that can only be read in close proximity which says 'if you can read this, you were probably better off cycling'

Or:

'Cyclist on board'

I'm all for y'all attempting to safeguard your particular understanding of what is correct english usage through the medium of internet comments. *do* let me know how you get on with that. really.

we printed 500 because we thought it'd be a laugh, and we've sold 1,200 so far and had to do another print run. are they ironic? are they grammatically correct? well, people seem to like them. you do the math.

I must have missed both the irony & sarcasm. But then, attempting to safeguard one's particular understanding of what is correct english usage through the medium of internet comments can be a little tricky!

'Am I the only one who sees the irony of these stickers?

Order them to stick on the glass in your car, car!!!!!!

Crass idea merely to make money by road.cc. Not even a very good choice of words.

I won't be buying one.

No irony at all. The vast majority of cyclists also own cars. Things like this help to spread the message that car drivers and cyclists are often the same people, and the roads don't have to be a war zone.

Will you be posting on any other websites stating that you don't intend to buy what they're selling or just this one ?

1) There is irony in this, bucket loads. If you can't see it then you should go to Specsavers.

2) I have news for you Sherlock - bicycle and car ownership aren't mutually exclusive. You've only just realised ……………..

3) The roads aren't a war zone as you state.

4) What has posting on other websites got to do with anything?

Nope, still can't see the irony. Some drive because they have no alternative, some drive when they could cycle. Car drivers saying cyclists are awesome because they've cycled when they could doesn't seem in any way ironic. I'd be interested to hear your clarification. As for point 2), if I'm Sherlock then you must be Watson, which seems apt. You seem to be using my point as your own ? It's getting the message out that we are often one and the same.

It's called free choice in a free world. If people want to cycle it's good, if people want to drive it's good, if some one wants to do something totally different it's fine but having this almost fascist fanatically view of cycling is wrong. The issue here is safety not whether one form of transport is better than another. You are stating that all cyclists who drive and have cars should place these stickers in their cars. Well bollocks to that, it's not even a good sticker and as has been pointed out by others grammatically incorrect. It does nothing to highlight vulnerability of cyclists and to take care driving around them. I am certainly not the same as you, thank Heavens!

I disagree. Much of this '2 tribes' mentality comes from an inability to relate to other people. Even when cyclists say "but drivers and cyclists are often the same people", what the stupid minority actually hear is that those darn cyclists might also be drivers, but really they're weird hippies that drive something tiny and strange i.e. "they're not a proper driver, not like me" etc etc. I'd put this in the rear window of my, actually rather fancy, family car to try and help dispel that myth. Really not ironic.
