I feel like Chris Farley in this: http://www.ebaumsworld.com/video/watch/206019/

The plan is to get as many cyclists at the intersection of 26th and Clinton at rush hour.  Every bike makes a complete stop.  EVERY BIKE STOPS.  If 3 pull up to the same stop sign, each bike waits to stop individually. Take your time. Wave on cyclists or even autos.  Make sure to let those cross-walkers go!

After seeing this: http://bikeportland.org/2014/08/15/cars-will-detoured-onto-se-clinton-division-street-repaving-110114

I feel like Chris Farley in this: http://www.ebaumsworld.com/video/watch/206019/

The plan is to get as many cyclists at the intersection of 26th and Clinton at rush hour.  Every bike makes a complete stop.  EVERY BIKE STOPS.  If 3 pull up to the same stop sign, each bike waits to stop individually. Take your time. Wave on cyclists or even autos.  Make sure to let those cross-walkers go!
