From The New York Shitty Inbox, Part II: 7th Annual Memorial Ride & Walk

This item comes courtesy of the folks at Ghostbikes.org. On Sunday, March 18th, they will be conducting their 7th Annual Memorial Ride & Walk. Follows is a general outline per their press release.

The Annual Memorial Ride and Walk brings New Yorkers together to remember pedestrians and cyclists killed in our city over the past year.  This will mark the seventh year that this event has occurred.  Riders will visit the site of each ghost bike, a white-painted memorial for cyclists, installed in the past year.  Please help us show solidarity with the family and friends of those lost by joining us for this important event.  Bring flowers and other items to honor those lost.

Bronx-Manhattan Ride
11:30 La Finca Del Sur Community Garden, S138th & Grand Concourse (4 or 5 to E138th St, Bronx)

Queens-Brooklyn Ride

11:30 Cross Bay Pkwy & Beach Channel Dr. (A to Beach 90 or Beach 98, Queens)

Staten Island Ride

12:00 Everything Goes Book Cafe, 208 Bay St (between Victory and Hannah, Staten Island)

Brooklyn Ride

12:30 Avenue T & 9th St. (D to 25th Ave. or N to Avenue U, Brooklyn)

Convergence

4:00 Unnamed memorial, Union Ave. & S5th St., Brooklyn

The event is free and open to all.
Rain date: Sunday, March 25

Those of you who are interested in attending any of the above-listed events can RSVP via Facebook by clicking here. Otherwise you can get more information and updates at Ghostbikes’s web site.

Given our very own 94th Precinct reported 77 pedestrian/motorist accidents in 2011 (two of which were fatalities) versus 47 in 2010 (still not a stellar figure), I strongly encourage any and all north Brooklynites to participate in this event. Be it by attending the Memorial Walk/Ride proper or helping with the creation and installation of ghost bikes at the Greenpoint Reformed Church thsi upcoming weekend (March 10th from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.) we can make our voices heard!

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.
