The thousands of Tour de Tucson participants had an unrelenting rain as they pedaled their way around Tucson. Unusual weather for this time of year - and a bit cold, too. Today I'd like to feature some of the memorials that have sprung up around Tucson to raise awareness of bicyclists who have been killed by motorists. Here are just five of the many "Ghost Bike" memorials around town. Each one is different and has its own sad story to tell. They are powerful reminders to motorists to be aware.
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
