EDIT: i had no idea at the time of taking or posting, but this is a ghost bike.

Gabrielle (journalist, cyclist, activist, all-around great human being) poses next to the ghost bike she organized to install on Av. du Parc at the intersection of St. Viateur, in Montreal. Ghost bikes are installed as memoria in locations where cyclists were killed. In ths case, Suzanne Iswari swerved to avoid a car door being opened and was struck and killed by a passing bus. Her photo is in the front wheel; behind Gabrielle are notes from Suzanne's fiance and her parents. The driver was only given a $30 ticket, despite not having looked to make sure that the road was clear. He is contesting the ticket in court -- with a lawyer!

 

Although she did not know the cyclist, Gabrielle and a friend organized this memorial. They have since organized several others as well.

Chris (Digital Desert Photography) and I went out last night to take some nighttime photography around Albuquerque.

 

This memorial was erected by the family of a young mother who lost her life while riding her bicycle on Paseo del Vulcan.

 

I did extremely minimal tinkering with this shot in Photoshop. I felt it was important to convey generally what the camera captured. To me there was a reason the sky was that colour and I kept it that way.

 

This was a 30 second exposure at f8 with an ISO of 200. Chris used a flashlight to briefly light the scene to get the effect I wanted.

 

Note: I've been rethinking my approach to adding this photo to popular groups with blinking little invite icons. This is afterall a memorial symbol. For this photo, I will not be adding to too many more groups out of respect. Hope you understand.

Portland, OR - June 2017

Reportedly on his way to a job interview . . . a local boy struck down . . . he was described in the newspaper as "A musician, a comedian, an outgoing teenager."

 

Someone has painted this bicycle white and placed it near the site of the accident. A poignant reminder to all who pass by . . . a reminder to slow down . . . to look both ways . . . to hug your loved ones just a little bit tighter . . .

 

My sincerest sympathies to the family and friends of Andrew Duerkop.

On 13th January 2015, Artur Piotr Ruszel was hit by a car close to this spot on Upper Brook Street while riding his bike. He died from his injuries later that day.

 

This ghost bike was installed here in his memory a month later. Ghost bikes are bikes that are painted white and placed at the location where a cyclist was killed or fatally injured....

29 years , killed by a truck. .. be always careful.

Ghost Bikes are small and somber memorials for bicyclists who are killed or hit on the street. A bicycle is painted all white and locked to a street sign near the crash site, accompanied by a small plaque. They serve as reminders of the tragedy that took place on an otherwise anonymous street corner, and as quiet statements in support of cyclists' right to safe travel.

 

Paula L Higgins 9/14/59 -7/17/06. Paula died tragically, while doing what she loved most -- bicycling.

Helene Lefranc knew the victim, Mathilde Blais. She also helped install the Ghost Bike for Suzanne Iswari (another woman killed while cycling; her ghost bike is shown elsewhere in my stream), whose birthday was this very same day...

 

In another coincidence, both women (Suzanne and Mathilde) were active in yoga and knew one another.

M. Brulotte speaking to the crowd (pictured earlier): his son was also killed by a motorist while biking.

This particular bike is on the East Side very near the United Nations building. It was the second I found today in lower Manhattan.

 

The first ghost bikes were created in St. Louis, Missouri in 2003, and they have since appeared in over 100 locations throughout the world. For those who create and install the memorials, the death of a fellow bicyclist hits home. We all travel the same unsafe streets and face the same risks; it could just as easily be any one of us. Each time we say we hope to never have to do it again -- but we remain committed to making these memorials as long as they are needed.

 

I took this shot from my partner's car. The rider was whizzing by so fast he seemed to disappear, leaving a faint outline of the bike.

The bicycle community erects a ghost bike on Los Robles in honor of 24-year-old Jocelyn Young, killed here by a Hit and Run Driver early Sunday Morning.
