Ghost Bike

Even during a pandemic, cyclists can be killed.

On Wednesday, July 1 I’ll be in the Taos, NM area to install a ghost bike for Mark McLaughlin, who was killed last Friday June 26, 2020.  The exact location is 163 State Route 230, Arroyo Seco, 87514.  The event will be at 6:30pm.  The family has indicated to me that all are welcome at this event.

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.
