South Side Ghost Bike Ride

Tuesday I rode with about 215 fellow travelers in a Ghost Bike dedication / protest ride regarding the killing of cyclist Dennis Flanigan, 49 years old, of McKees Rocks. This was a very well-run operation, considering it brought together a lot of people who don't usually ride together, for a night ride on a dangerous road. BikePgh (the organizer) and Major Taylor Cycling (the ride marshalls) really did a nice job.

Post Gazette coverage. This is the fourth ghost bike I've delivered, I'd like to not need any more ghost bikes.
