In 2012, nearly 50,000 cyclists were killed or injured in motor vehicle traffic crashes. Painted white bikes or "Ghost Bikes" are placed throughout the country at many of these fatal crash sites as reminders of a tragedy that took place on otherwise anonymous street corners. The bikes are quiet statements in support of a cyclist's right to safe travel.
Join the Provo chapter of the Worldwide Ride of Silence on May 20th to ride to the brand new Ghost Bike Memorial for Douglas Crow, who was struck and killed by an SUV on February 15th, 2013.
We will begin at Dixon Middle School (750 W 200 N, Provo, UT) and go for a short, slow, silent ride to the Ghost Bike Memorial located at the location of Crow's accident at the railroad crossing at 700 West 600 South.
We will then ride back to Dixon Middle School where we will have light refreshments.
In addition Kona Ice (https://www.facebook.com/KonaIceofSouthOremProvo/) will be at the event selling their over 40 different flavors that are gluten, dairy free and upon request they can serve dye free/sugar free flavors!
