4th Annual Memorial Ride and Walk: Sunday, January 4, 2009

The NYC Street Memorial Project invites you to the 4th Annual Memorial
Ride and Walk in remembrance of cyclists and pedestrians killed on the
streets of NYC in 2008.  The ride, which will be held on Sunday,
January 4, 2009, has 4 starting points: Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx,
and lower Manhattan.

Riders will visit the site of each ghost bike, a white-painted
memorial for cyclists killed on the street, installed in New York City
in 2008.  They will join a Memorial Walk to honor pedestrians killed
in the past year in lower Manhattan.

See www.ghostbikes.org for more information about the ride and the

Wishing Everyone Happy Holidays

Sorry if I havent been posting lately, but I have been busy with DJing(music, not bikes), since I have been layed off a few months ago. I wanted to take the time to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Happy New Year. I hope to see every one in the new year that I didnt ride with last year.
