THIS SUNDAY: 6th Annual Memorial Ride & Walk

This item was brought to my attention by a lady named Leah. This upcoming Sunday, March 13, the folks behind ghostbikes.org will be conducting their 6th Annual Memorial Ride & Walk. Follows is a very general outline of their proposed schedule:

I have been told a starting point in Greenpoint has been added: 1:00 p.m., on the steps of St Anthony’s, Greenpoint Avenue & Milton St (1/2 block from Greenpoint G stop). The rain/snow date for this event is March 20th. You can view updated information regarding this multi-borough event by checking out Ghost Bikes’s web site.

Closing on a related note, I would like to remind everyone that one of our own, Emilie Gossiaux, was seriously injured by a hit and run driver October of last year. You can read more about this amazing young woman, her recovery and tender a donation towards her (copious) medical expenses by clicking here.
