    Second Ghost Bike

    Harry McGee

    Somebody (thank you Thomas)  emailed me this morning to say that a second ghost bike has been erected at Aston Quay, near the spot where Karl McGee was killed last September.

    The South Quays are beyond awful for cyclists. No proper cycling lane. Squeezed in between buses and cars. With cars accelerating as if it’s Brands Hatch and not a (supposedly people friendly) city centre. See the discussion following his death on boards.ie here.

    And here is the link to the original article I wrote when the first ghost bike came to Dublin.

      That’s an absolutey class idea. How elegant dignified and respectful. Speaking as someone who as a kid got ploughed under by a drunk driver while riding my bicycle and spent a very long time in hospital and in recovery afterwards, cyclists rate second only to bugs in the view of many drivers. This might just serve as a reminder to some and if it saves one life, while remembering another so needlessly lost, then what a fantastic thing it is.
