a ghost is born (ten)

From a photoset on the ceremony placing the bike and remembering the rider.

Also, if you’re in Illinois, you should read about Matt’s Law, and consider calling or writing your representatives about it. If enacted, it would stiffen penalties for distracted drivers, after Matthew Wilhelm was killed in September 2006 by a driver downloading a ringtone to her cellphone. Jennifer Stark, the driver who killed Wilhelm, was fined $1,000 and served just 6 months of probation.

2 Comments came through Seattle last summer and got a good deal of press.  A great message with minimal impact.  Of course I was clipped by a right-hand turning car while in the bike lane about 25 feet from a ghostcycle bike.

I saw one of these bikes in downtown KC today.  if only people cared more. but im glad someone is paying homage to our fallen riders.  thoughts and prayers to the families.  thanks
