We ride and walk with love in our hearts, with sadness for what has been lost, with rage that these crashes did not have to happen, and with hope that we never, ever have to do this again.

excerpt from speech given at each ghost bike during the 6th Annual Memorial Walk and Ride in NYC on March 13, 2011. Yesterday’s ride passed through the Bronx, Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Staten Island, stopping at each of the ghost bikes installed during the previous year before culminating in a rally at Brooklyn Borough Hall and the dedication of a ghost bike for the unnamed and unknown whose deaths never made the news.
