Critical Mass - Wear Something Red for Jaye

Manchester

Wear something red for Jaye

On 3rd August Jaye Bloomfield was killed whilst cycling near the Mancunian Way. Coverage in the Manchester Evening News

Jaye and her partner Gemma were planning to join in with critical mass, but hadn't got around to it. They attended the Oxford Road Flashmob where many of us would have met them.

Gemma has suggested that since Jaye's favourite colour was red people could wear something red on this month's ride (facebook event page).

Jaye's ghost bike page is here
