Reminder: Sign up for Tucson Velo’s Bicycle Broadcast System
The first message of the BBS went out yesterday warning cyclists about the bike lane closure on Anklam.
The Bicycle Broadcast System is a way to quickly spread time-sensitive information to cyclists using text messages.
The system will be used sparingly. Messages will include information regarding road construction that affects bicyclists, enforcement zones, locating hit-and-run drivers and other critical information.
I can’t be all places all the time so this system will allow users to submit their own messages. Their messages will be sent to me and I will be able to forward them out to the entire group if it is applicable.
Signing up is easy. Just text tucsonvelo to the number 41411. To unsubscribe, text leave tucsonvelo to the same number and you will be removed from the system.
To send a message that you think other cyclists should know about, text tucsonvelo leave a space, then type your message. It will be sent directly to me and I can forward it to the entire group.
