There is an international effort called "Ghost Bikes" that strives to raise awareness of bicyclists who are killed by motorists. A white bicycle is placed near the scene of the accident and serves as a memorial. This bike honors little Jose Rincon who was just 14 years old when he was struck by a drunk driver on Broadway near Harrison. These white bikes are a powerful message.
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. (:
