SE 14th. & Burnside, Portland, Oregon.

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....

I know what it means to see a ghost bike.....not a good feeling. Here is what I found about the man possibly responsible for this one...

 

A Silsbee man has taken on a unique mission to make sure Houstonians don't forget the victims of fatal bicycle accidents. He is driving over 100 miles into Houston to install memorials all over the city.

 

Richard Tomlinson is a member of the city's cycling community, and now he's a big part of the Houston Ghost Bike group.

 

He spent his weekend installing 13 ghost bikes -- stripped bicycles painted all white -- across Houston. Each bike corresponds to the death of a cyclist, just as white crosses on the side of road mark nearby fatal car accidents.

 

He's part of an international effort, complete with a website that lists where most every ghost bike sits. The Houston Ghost Bike Facebook group has the sad task of keeping track of local cyclist fatalities.

 

So far, Tomlinson has installed close to 40 memorials. By the time he is done, he will have attached 61 to the side of Houston roads. He hopes to not have install any more past that.

 

Tomlinson is spending his own money, made mostly by doing odd jobs, to memorialize fellow cyclists. By his estimate, he spent nearly 35 hours this weekend attaching bikes to fences and telephone poles with heavy duty chain. Every 60 feet of chain costs him $150, he says.

 

Manhattan... Two days... Trade Fair... Blurred memories...

A new ghostbike for Renata Gonzalez. The Ride Of Silence is tonight, starting at 5:30pm from Sports Basement.

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.
