Ghostbikes

A ghost bike is a bicycle set up in a place where a cyclist has been killed by a motor vehicle as a memorial and as a reminder to passing motorists to share the road. An old bicycle is stripped to its "skeleton" and painted white with a small placard attached. It is then locked to a suitable object close to the scene of the crash.

Ghost bikes provide both a personal and a political statement. They originated in the states (the first was erected in Missouri in 2003) and are gradually becoming an international phenomenon.
