Ghost Bike

While I’m driving around from one place to another in my car, I’m always on the look for photogenic opportunities that may interest me. Most of the time, I don’t have my Nikon or Pentax camera with me, so I use my Cell Phone camera to capture something I see.

While driving down to a Bike Trail, I happen to notice this “Ghost Bike” on a small side road off to my left. For the 1st time, I have now seen one of these that I’ve read about here on WP. Most of you know that this is a memorial to someone who lost their Life at this spot. There is a name written on the center support bar that says “Kelly” 2017.

What actually happened, I don’t know. I am to assume that she died close to RT724 at the intersection. RT724 can be a very busy 2-lane road, at times. I’ve driven up & down the road many times, and never saw this before.

After I took this Image, I stood there and said a silent prayer for the girl who died here. Since I have started doing some bike riding I am always very cautious and well aware of what can happen. I do wear bright day-glow Yellow shoes, shirt, gloves, and vest so their is no reason for motorists to say “I didn’t see him!” For those of you that ride a bicycle, please be careful out there! There are drivers that just don’t pay attention.

May you Rest in Peace, Kelly.

Thanks for stopping by.

I am 75 yrs. young and now retired. I worked in the Machinist Trade for 24 yrs. Served in the US Navy with a Tour of Duty in Vietnam. Being retired I do enjoy Photography with my Nikon and Pentax Camera's, snooping around in Historic and Abandoned places, using my Scroll Saw, Reading, Travel, riding a bicycle on the many Trails that are around my area, and what-ever else will interest me at the time. Come with me and see where I go, where I have been, and my Life surviving Retirement.
