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!

Another vote for the in-car window sticker here. I don't want to stick adhesive to the paintwork on my gas-guzzling penis replacement. (I'm not being sarcastic)

Wait a minute, you need to sort out the syntax there. Shouldn't awesome be capitalised for visual impact? Otherwise I would be too busy tut-tutting the sign not to fall and scrape my bar-end all down your van. (I am being pedantic)

Transport for London has now begun to see sense on this matter, see http://rdrf.org.uk/2014/06/26/transport-for-london-sees-sense-at-last-ov...

Agree with Farrell, a window sticker would be great, don't want to risk putting one of the paintwork

Would definitely buy a window sticker. Sticking something on the company car is otherwise a no-no.

CYCLIST!
Pass WIDE
Pass SLOW

Unless Road.cc want to offer this version?

My previous post appears to have been sensible and helpful, so can I change my request to:

I support the idea of issuing them as car stickers! I've ordered 10 but I anticipate Space for Cycling Sheffield may want a couple of 100 over the next year: discounts for bulk?

Make an English version saying "Stay Amazing" and I'll buy some. I cannot abide "awesome".

Hey, Dave, you need to bump up "Implement an 'unlike' button" on your priority list  1

I've got a 'Cyclists: Stay Classy' A4 sticker on the back of my bike child seat. I used letters from another Stay Back sticker so I was limited in the letters available. Still, less American than "awesome", even if "Stay classy" is an Anchorman catchphrase.

What can you not abide about Awesome? Is it the Awe or the addition of Some? If I presume correctly and it's the Some, how do you feel about a word like Handsome? Do you find that sort of language Irksome or positively Winsome? I don't mean to come over as Meddlesome, I really do want to know.

Origin of the word, according to OED, late 16th century, so about the time Shakespeare (or the Earl of Oxford or whoever) was starting to put quill to parchment, and long before any colonies were founded over there.

There are a lot of things people presume are "Americanisms" that started here but fell out of use in British English  3

Adjective;
extremely impressive or daunting; inspiring awe."the awesome power of the atomic bomb".
Synonyms:breathtaking, amazing, stunning, 
astounding,astonishing, awe-inspiring, stupendous,staggering, extraordinary, incredible,unbelievable; 

So long as you don't put "totally" in front of "awesome", I think it is totally awesome. As a window sticker.

I agree. 'Awesome' is a 'superlative', it's an extreme that can hardly be gone beyond, inspiring awe, daunting, like God, say. Now it seems to have been transformed into something like 'good'. I have actually heard someone say 'awesome crisps'. Pathetic. Why do you want to copy the language of American teenagers?

Unfortunately, I have now spent my lunch break apeing all sorts of "cyclist danger" stickers

It would be nice to have the A5 ones being done as window stickers for putting in cars if that is possible.

Yep, if you could do the smaller so as to stick on the inside of a car window then I'd have a couple.

They're waterproof vinyl, and quite sticky but they shouldn't tear when you remove them

On a practical note, are they waterproof and can they be removed again without trashing the paintwork/leaving old glue on the paint?
