The Washington Area Bicyclist Association just released a product may interest out-of-towners: a winning explanation of protected bike lanes that fits on a t-shirt.

"STRESS LESS," the shirt announces, with an image of a planter-protected bike lane couplet detailed in green.

Protected bike lanes, it explains, are "known to cause measurable increases in cheerful grinning, admiring of the scenery and goodwill towards humanity."

(Disclaimer: the real T-shirt does not actually include hyperlinks to scientific evidence. Those are a special Internet feature only available here on

The T-shirt comes with a one-year WABA membership, which costs $35 and goes to a good cause. Not to mention the holidays are coming right up. Just sayin'.
