Ghost Bike

Ghost Bike in London
Wandering around in East London today and spotted this fitting reminder of a fallen cyclist; a ghost bike. I've seen these in a few other cities such as New York, and even Denver and they're always a chilling reminder of the constant danger of being a cyclist in a major city. Be safe out there.

  1. This is an interesting idea. Do they just put these things where the accident happened, or in a random place?

    The places I've seen them are pretty dangerous looking intersections so I'm guessing it's the general location of the accident.
