Ghost Bike

Even during a pandemic, cyclists can be killed.

This link will take you to more pictures and a nice story in the Taos News https://bit.ly/TaosMcLaughlin

Stephanie with Ghost Bike On Wednesday, July 1, I was in the Taos, NM area to install a ghost bike for Mark McLaughlin, who was killed Friday June 26, 2020.  The exact location is 163 State Route 230, Arroyo Seco, 87514. 

The event was at 6:30pm. 

About 20 people, family that came in from out of state, and nearby residents, attended.

Here is the original report from Taos News. I don’t have any other details about the crash.

This story came up in an unrelated email search. It was really nice though, so I wanted to share, and thank Shannon Miera and her family, along with KOB-TV.
