Memorial Ride October 4

The bicycle community will come together to honor the memory of cyclists who've been killed in recent accidents in the Twin Cities metro, this Saturday, October 4. The group will meet at 10:30am at the corner of Summit and Snelling Avenues in St. Paul. Go here for more details.

The ride will visit sites of three of the most recent crashes, where "ghost bikes" have been placed as memorials to the victims, Jimmy Niser, Nik Morton, and Virginia Heuer. Riders are asked to wear a black shirt with orange ribbon either on their arms or handlebars, and expected to be orderly and respectful of traffic. This is not a Critical Mass ride, and cyclists who disrupt traffic or ride recklessly will be asked to leave.

In the afternoon, organizers have put together another ride to Blaine, to place a ghost bike for Dale Aanenson.
