Ghost bike

Nancy Antoine Leidy was struck and killed by a truck on April 23, locally here in North Carolina. She was flung 58 feet, the driver of the truck being a drunk student, around mid-morning.

Naturally this has sparked many a conversation in the biking blogosphere.

If you drive a car, and see a cyclist on the road, please be mindful of us.

Thank you for posting this. One way to commemorate this loss and those of other cyclists is to participate in a Ride of Silence on May 21. This is a short, slow bicycle ride escorted by police. As someone who has been hit but survived, I always attend. You can learn more here:
