I would rather that Ghost Bikes the website didn’t exist. It’s not that I have anything against the page; it’s well-written and comprehensive. But it wouldn’t be here if not for the existence of ghost bikes, white-painted bicycles placed on city streets near where cyclists have been struck and killed. The Ghost Bikes site provides a global map of these memorials (including one in Las Vegas), a listing of cyclist-safety events (most of them appear to be in New York City) and, sadly, a necessary how-to guide for preparing and placing a ghost bike for a fallen rider. It’s not often that I use this space to stump for anything besides wasting time, but seriously: Please give bicycles 3 feet of space the next time you zip past a rider on the street. There are already too many goddamn ghost bikes haunting our peripheral vision.
