2013 Ghost Bike Ride in NYC - Sunday April 21

For those interested who have not done this ride before, it is a slow-paced, safety-oriented ride. There is usually some media presence and family and friends of the fallen do show up. The rides will take place with legs in different boroughs, starting around 1 PM, and converge at the last bike near the Queensboro bridge at 4:30. The after event is still in the planning stages but it looks to be food and drinks at a nearby LIC area venue. I encourage all to attend however much of the routes as you can, and show support for the casualties of 2012, and for safer streets going forward.

We are still hashing out all the details, so please refer to the links below in the next few weeks for more updates.


8th Annual Memorial Ride and Walk
Sunday, April 21, 2013




The Annual Memorial Ride and Walk brings New Yorkers together to remember pedestrians and cyclists killed in our city over the past year. This will mark the eighth year that this event has occurred. Riders will visit the site of each ghost bike, a white-painted memorial for cyclists, installed since 2012. Please help us show solidarity with the family and friends of those lost by joining us for this important event. Bring flowers and other items to honor those lost.

Please look out for a full schedule and route to be posted in the next few weeks.

The routes and times for all the bikes are now posted online for the 4/21 ride. I'll be leading the Northeast Queens leg.
