(Man, I bet Hammer wishes he could copyright this. Imagine all the money he could be making!)
But this one spotted at SE 27th and Taylor made me stop and take notice.
I stood there, puzzled for a moment. But what does it mean?
Are they referring to the hill in the distance, imploring us two wheeled folks to coast? It’s a short but good li’l 8% or so grade. Nothing like a good li’l coast every now and again, no matter what Saint Sheldon says.
Or is this a challenge to fixie riders? Just take your feet off the pedals for this hill, kids!

Or are they anti-bicycle? Maybe.
But these scenarios would make some sense if the sign read “Stop Pedaling.” Instead it implores us to “Stop Peddling.” As in, sell stuff.
Has there been a spate of door-to-door salespeople using bikes? Or sketchy looking guys in hoodies on BMXs moving some “dank” in the ‘hood?
I am confused.
Also: Brakes stop a bicycle wheel. You better hope they don’t break when you use them.
