Very excited to announce a new T-Shirt theme: “Ride softly but carry a big horn”
The quip is inspired by former President Theodore Roosevelt who said “speak softly but carry a big stick.” This is nicely analogous to Loud Bicycle; we don’t want to use the horn, but we can ride confidently knowing the horn is there to keep us safe when we need it. Also, Teddy Roosevelt was a really awesome guy. He created the first New York City bicycle police squad, commuted by bicycle and directed the United States on a path of nature conservation.
Ellen Marcus put together this sketch which Allison Johnston will be making T-Shirtable soon.
