If you’re on a bike and it’s Wednesday, then wave!
Brought to you by the San Francisco Bike Coalition, www.sfbike.org
Answers to commonly asked questions:
What’s Waving Wednesday?
It’s a simple concept! It’s Wednesday and you’re riding a bicycle. You see someone else on a bicycle. You wave to them. They wave to you.
Does it cost anything to particiapte in Waving Wednesday?
Waving Wednesday only costs about 3 calories per wave.
If I wave on Wednesdays, can I still wave on other days?
Waving to promote cameraderie among cyclists is always encouraged.
What qualifies as a wave?
A wave ‘counts’ when you move your hand back and forth at least 3 times. Nodding or saluting do not count-those salutations can find their own darn days.
Do I really have to do this?
Yes, you have to.
The Committee for Environmental Responsibility and The Center for Peace and Global Citizenship is sponsoring a “Go By Bike” workshop series, encouraging community members to bike more. For more information contact email@example.com or www.haverford.edu/staff/gobybike/
