ghost bikes



One of my students told me about the phenomenon of Ghost Bikes recently!

A Ghost Bike, i.e. a bike painted all white tied to a railing for instance,
marks the spot where a cyclist met an unfortunate death in a road accident.
Until last weekend I had never seen one - but then I was walking home from visiting a friend
down Kingsland High Street.
