Tucson's Ghost Bikes

Around town there are a handful of ghostly white bicycles that mark the place where a bicyclist was killed. These poignant memorials are installed by the biking community to honor the rider as well as to create awareness of how vulnerable a bicyclist is competing with motorized vehicles. This particular ghost bike honors Jose Rincon who was killed by a drunk driver.

  1. NYC has a few white Ghost Bikes also-


  2. Along with the photos I posted a link to an article in the AZ Daily Star. It says there are 33 cities (and 8 other countries)that support this program.
