David Sherman was riding his bike around 5:45pm on October 24, 2009 and was struck by a vehicle. Now a white memorial ghost bike stands in the place  where his life was unnecessarily taken. David Sherman’s bike looked similar to the other memorial bikes below.

I believe the woman who drove off after hitting Mr. Sherman has not served one day in prison.

She had previous convictions and basically did not have the right to be driving in the first place.

My heart breaks for the family. I can’t even imagine the hurt, sadness and anger over this injustice.

An avid biker was killed enjoying an activity that probably brought him great joy.

Instead of roadside memorials, those killed on bicycles will be honored by a white memorial bike. These somber memorials began in St Louis Missouri, 2003 and are now in over 100 locations around the world.

Ghost Bikes is the official site where there are instructions how to create a memorial bike.

Peace Love and Hugs
