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).

Ghost Bikes: A Cyclist Was Killed Here Film Screening

Los Angeles

From the Ventura Museum Website:

Ghost Bikes, a recently completed documentary by Danny Gamboa,
concentrates on Southern California's part in a worldwide phenomenon of
white bikes appearing as unofficial memorials where bicyclists have lost
their lives in traffic accidents. In Ventura County this year, ghost
bikes have been installed in remembrance of fallen riders Nick Haverland
and Jose Luis Carmona

The Ghost Bikes film will be shown at both 6:30
and 7:15 pm on Friday, November 18, at the Museum of Ventura County, and
the filmmaker will be there to answer questions. Admission is $5 for
the general public, free for museum members. It includes entry to all
exhibits, including Departures, which features the ghost bike made to
honor Nick Haverland, the 20-year old Ventura College student struck and
killed on Telegraph Road this past May. For reservations to either
screening, call 805-653-0323 x 7.

A ghost bike is first stripped to its basics and painted white. Often
local artists contribute elements, and then the bike is anonymously
left locked to a street sign near the crash site. The first ghost bikes
appeared in St. Louis in 2003, and volunteers tracking the sites
estimate that since then, more than 150 have appeared worldwide. Gamboa,
a Long Beach based filmmaker, sees ghost bikes as art that can raise
awareness about safety and encourage communication about sharing the
road. Gamboa is a cyclist who has installed ghost bikes for fallen
strangers.

The Museum of Ventura County is located at 100 East Main Street in
downtown Ventura. Hours are 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday.
Admission is $4 adults, $3 seniors, $1 children 6-17, members and
children under 6 are free. For more museum information go to www.venturamuseum.org or call 805-653-0323.

Bici Blanca en Memoria a Hugo Vinicio Ortiz Lemos

Quito

Queremos convocarles a razón de:

La BICICLETA BLANCA puesta en el acto realizado con la presencia de
mas de 100 ciclistas el día Martes 6 de Octubre del 2009 en conjunto con
la COLICION DE CICLISTAS URBANOS en las calles Amazonas y Pereira,en
honor al ciclista Hugo Vinicio Ortiz atropellado y muerto el día Sábado
26 de Septiembre del 2009 por causa de la imprudencia del conductor de
bus Sr. Fausto René Vizuete Farinango de la Com …pañía Paquisha (bus de
disco 2403, placas PUC-418) fue removida del lugar por alguna autoridad
municipal, persona o institución desconocida en el presente año. Acción
dada pese a los tramites realizados por nuestra organización Andando en
Bici Carajo, ante las autoridades de la Administración Municipal Norte
(Permiso concedido), la presencia y apoyo de familiares de los
ciclistas, la serie de apoyos públicos que se tuvieron por parte de
medios de prensa, instituciones relacionadas y la sociedad civil de
forma general.

Las bicicletas blancas son parte de una campaña mundial que se lleva
acabo para visibilizar la muerte de ciclistas urbanos que en su
ejercicio y derecho de movilidad han sido agredidos y violentados por
conductores inconcientes, mas que una estatua se han convertido en un
acto de construcción de memoria.

Creemos que es necesario que esta bicicleta se mantenga, se consolidé
y acompañe la bicicleta colocada el mismo día en las calles Shyris y
Portugal. En memoria del ciclista Pablo Lazzarini atropellado y muerto
el día Lunes 28 de Septiembre del 2009 por imprudencia de un conductor
desconocido pero también por la falta de programación de los semáforos
en esta intersección.

Lugar: Amazonas y Pereira Esq.
Hora: 5:30 pm
Fecha: Viernes 10 de diciembre
