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.
One thought on “GHOST BIKE”
Such a nice tribute and a reminder to cyclists that motorists don’t always see them, even though they should.
