We all need to share the road
Share & Be Aware is a statewide campaign to raise awareness among all road users that everyone would be much safer if all of us would obey all traffic laws at all times.

Share & Be Aware partners with WisDOT
The Bike Fed’s Share & Be Aware program will reach more people in 2011 thanks to a state and federal grant announced October 27, 2010, by the governor’s office. Through the grant, we’ll be working with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Bureau of Transportation Safety to teach bicyclists and motorists throughout the state about sharing the road. See our press release for details.
This partnership was made possible by a matching federal grant, and the Bike Fed needs to raise $75,000 in special donations to complete the funding.
