    Bike Forum - Wall of Remembrance

    I was thinking today about the cyclists who have been killed while riding their bikes, and that I have never seen a "Wall of Remembrance" for them.
    I've decided to start this thread for those of us who have been touched in some way, by the death of a fellow rider while they have been riding, and would like to honour them.
    Please do not turn this thread into a finger pointing discussion.
    Please keep it as name, date, and location.

    I would like to start the list:
    Darren Smith: 17 November 1992, Pacific Highway, Beenleigh, Australia
    Luke Harrop : 12 January 2002, Bermuda Street, Mermaid Waters, Australia.
    Amy Gillett: 18 July 2005, Germany
    Road Bike: 2004 ORBEA Mitis2+Carbon, Freekin' groovy Urban / Mountain Road Cruising Bike: 2007 CANNONDALE Bad Boy Disc, MTB: 2012 Trek Gary Fisher Collection Marlin 29er

    I won't mention the name, because the Father might not approve. Father (front), 2 daughters, and mother (rear) were on a family bike-ride, early in the morning, when a drunk driver veered into the bike lane, and hit and killed one of the daughters.

    I don't want to seem like I'm hyjacking the thread with something that could be seen as being politicised, but this page shows the sad state of the law in Britain and the casual way it treats the deaths of cyclists. It's sad, sad reading.

    I only knew her a "Mouse". She was a Major in the United States Marine Corps. She died in Iraq in December, 2006.
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.

    Zac Carr died October 2005.
    I grew up as a kid idolising those hero's in the Tour de France, Indurain and everyone like that. It was almost a childhood dream to ride the Tour de France. The last 2 years my childhood dream which became a reality has been pissed all over by certain members of the peloton. - Bradley Wiggins 27th July 2007.
