The other thing we've been working on is a sling backpack with a safety message printed on the outside pocket. You can see my friend wear the backpack in this photo. The "3-Feet It's the Law" message is reflective and was designed to help increase awareness for NRS 484B.270. I call our state law "A Lane or 3-feet Law" which basically says motorists must move to the left lane if possible when passing a bicyclist. If there is not a left lane then they must pass with at least 3-feet clearance from the bicycle.

It was a collaborative (and volunteer) effort by faculty, staff and students and multiple departments across campus including Integrated Marketing, Parking & Transportation Services, Student Housing, School of Health Sciences, Information Technology, Human Resources and the UNR Campus Cycling Coalition. The Reno Bike Project V.I.S.T.A.s also joined the effort in the photo shoot for the brochure. They also attend each of our Bicycle Friendly University Meetings held once a month. We welcome your questions, comments, suggestions and involvement in our committee. Just let me know in this post if you'd like to be involved our committee!!
