One of the out of state ghost bikes that BFA has placed was just north of Birmingham, Al for William Robertson. Driver veered off the road over the rumble strips and took our friend! Our other friend was taken near Peachtree Industrial when a driver swerved to miss one cyclist and hit another in 2004. Tony was an avid triathlete. There is now a Awesome ride in April in honor of Tony! Please attend and remember our friend every year! I pray for their families daily and will never forget them!
Hard to believe it was a year ago when I was contacted to do a ghost bike and place it for a teacher of a friend. The kind of man, leader, husband and father we all try to be was taken from a community in Florida. I answered without having to think about it because he was a teacher like my mom was. My heart and prayers are with Diane Pinke Wishart, Rebekah Wishart and family and friends on this sad day that will never go away. Rest assured Bikefriendlyatl, Inc well never forget this great man and we’ll ride with him soon on roads where people always give 3 feet and care about each other!
BikefriendlyAtl will always remember Charles. No one deserves to be hit by a vehicle and leave this earth that way. Cyclists can and should do more to be visible, ie. bright clothing, white and red flashing lights, but drivers should not ever drink under the influence and put their phones down while driving a car. RIP my friend, we’ll never forget you! FB-Bikefriendlyatl, Inc
Many have forgotten you, I was nearly along side of you on the fallen friends list 5 months earlier! I promise to never forget/stop working in your honor to make our streets safer!
