Bike Commuter Cabal

79 Flips | 1 Magazine | 23 Followers | @BikeComutrCabal | The Bike Commuter Cabal started is a Community on Google+, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Flipboard. We are comprised of individuals from all over the world who choose to use bicycles to commute, run errands, and just get around. The goal is to support and foster bicycling as a sustainable and positive mode of transportation for everyone, everywhere. Somewhere, in our formative stages, members adopted the ‘zombie raccoon’ as our official mascot. You will see the zombie raccoon in worn proudly as knit hats, and on cabal cycling kit, bike labels, and stickers. You will also find the red eyed #zombieraccoon logo featured on all our accounts.
