The 12th Annual Blessing of the Bikes

New York City

Wear your usual cycle clothing and bring your bike (or skates or non-motorized scooter) INSIDE the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine for the 12th Annual Blessing of the Bikes.

Reverend Tom will say a few kind words and then sprinkle the bikes with Holy Water. There is a moment of silence to remember those cyclists we've lost in the past year, a chance for everyone to ring their bicycle bells in celebration of cycling, and we're gone. 

All faiths welcome.  This is a non-denominational event. 

Please note that this event is not organized by the NYC Street Memorial Project.  We will be present to read the names of those lost in the past year.  For more information about the event, please visit http://theblessingofthebikes.com/.

Concert for Solange Raulston

New York City

On this night we gather to pay homage to a Soul Queen. She was a magnificent being amongst us. If you were in her presence you knew that without a doubt that there was something different in the air. The atmosphere would never be the same, and you would be never be the same if you were in her realm.  Some called her Solange, DJ Reverend Soul, friend, sister and many other titles befitting a Goddess of her splendor. So come and be with the people who loved her to go out with a melodious bang, and let's shake the very ground in Brooklyn for "our girl". This is not the end only the beginning of being closer to the light. That is where she is, and on this night we will be closer to her than ever as we lift our voices to the Funky Heaven's, because if Solange is there...it just got good!

Featuring performances by:

Jason Rosen & Last Tribe NYC
Tiffany Pfeiffer & The Discarnate Band
The Mumbles
Yah Supreme & Brohemian
Nevegante
Pimps of Joytime
Dysfunksista & Friends

DJ Stylus & DJ Jesse Mann holding down the FUNK in her honor.

Two Memorial Rides and Ghost Bike Dedications for Gustavo Ramirez

Los Angeles

Posted on Midnight RideAzz

(ride 1) at 8pm Friday

(ride 2) at 8am Saturday

Please join us in celebrating the life of our good family member, friend, and co-worker Gustavo Ramirez.

Meet at Lincoln Park in Long Beach. Corner of Pacific Ave and W. 1st St. in downtown Long Beach 
(for either or both rides)

The ride will meet at 8:00pm leave promptly at 8:30pm.

Please bring a front and rear light as the route will be on city streets.

Warm clothes are encouraged since it will be at night and near the ocean.

Helmets are strongly encouraged.

All traffic laws will be observed.

There may be riders that are not as experienced as others, so
please bring along extra patches, tubes, etc. and be prepared to help
those less experienced than yourself.

The ride route will approximate a favorite ride of Gustavo's.
We will stop at the memorial and then finish his ride home to Belmont
Shore and stop there for a moment. After that, we will ride back to the
start.

The ride is mostly flat and the pace will be slow to medium with no rider left behind.

We will be stopping at the memorial for Gustavo for an
indefinite time, so there will be a chance to say something if you
would like.

The meeting point for the ride is across the street from the
Metro Blue Line Transit Mall station. If you plan on driving there is
paid parking at Lincoln Park. If you do not plan on riding, but would
like to meet when the ride stops at the ghostcycle, there is parking at
Shoreline Village. The ride will take about 30 minutes from the start
to arrive at that point.

Here is the link to the route map.

There is also a separate ride on Saturday the 16th at 8am. Some
family and people close to Gustavo expressed concern about riding at
night and preferred to ride during the daytime. Everyone is welcome to
attend either ride or both. The routes will be similar,but the Friday
ride will be longer. The family will definitely be at the memorial for
the Saturday ride.

More plans for remembering Gustavo were reported in the Contra Costa Times
