“I was riding down at the Waterfront in Portland, Oregon. Joggers, strollers and bikes are crowding the path which makes it more difficult for me to weave through traffic to avoid any collisions. But I manage my own way only to discover frustrated riders behind yelling at me. DeafBikeSigns now help me prevent frustrations coming from the others, and now I get smiles instead.”
“Before DeafBikeSigns, I crashed into one cyclist who passed me when he braked without giving the bike signal that shows that you are ‘slowing down’ or ‘braking’ so I was not aware of his sudden stop and crashed into him. The cyclist was angry saying he yelled it out to prepare me.”
“I was mountain biking going uphill (slow, it was steep) and there was a part where the trail diverged into two trails momentarily and two dirt bikers roared past me. I had no idea how long they had been behind me, and it would have been nice to let them know I couldn’t hear them. That is when I found out about DeafBikeSigns, a definite buy!”
“It is very often that during my rides, I am greeted by other cyclists trying to make conversation. All I can do is smile and gently nod my head and ride on. Sometimes they smile back, but sometimes they think I am an ignorant snob and rude. With signs, I don’t have to worry about that anymore.”
“Everyone was riding on a smooth curve down the hill. A cyclist (not knowing of my deafness) must have tried to inform me to hold my position as he decides to pass me on my left. This was so he could keep going at his high speed. But I was not aware of the message and decided to shift left into the parking lot and result: Crash. Now, I hook up a Deaf Sign on my bike to alert others!”
