Thanks to Dean Hesse for the coverage while on the beltline last time posted in the Midtown Messenger East. Sadly we’ll be there again hopefully before the end of the year to update the “Bike of Angels” again. Stay tuned for another BFA event!
BFA will place you a ghost bike later this week. We’ll always remember, never forget you.
