Frequently Asked Questions
How did the 'i share the road' campaign come about?
A friend of James Schwartz from The Urban Country expressed his interest in showing his support for cyclists on the streets by putting a sticker on his car. James thought this was a great idea and launched a design contest to search for an 'i share the road' logo. We selected a logo, ordered 15,000 stickers, and setup this web site to help spread the campaign internationally.
Where does my donation money go?
The 'i share the road' campaign is a not-for-profit campaign. All donation money received will help cover the costs of the campaign (initially funded by James Schwartz). View our financial information here.
