3rd Annual Craig Murphey Memorial Fundraiser

New York City

On October 17, 2009 Craig's friends and family will gather at Hope Lounge (10 Hope Street between Roebling and Havemeyer) for a fundraising party commemorating Craig's life, and to celebrate the joy he brought to everyone who knew him. Craig was known by most for his roaring laugh, contagious smile and outrageous dancing that kept us all entertained.

To kick off the night, a fundraising raffle will take place. Tickets will be available for purchase both at the venue and in advance at craigmurphey.com/raffle for $5 or $20 for 5. Local boutiques, bars, restaurants, artists and musicians have donated prizes ranging in value from $20 to $300 to the raffle. A percentage of the bar's earnings for the night and the entire profit from the raffle tickets will be donated to NYCCAH’s Craig Murphey Fellowship Fund. Our goal is to raise as much as we can to contribute to the funding of next year's Craig Murphey Fellow who will be working directly on anti-hunger efforts with the NYC Coalition Against Hunger (www.nyccah.org). The more we raise, the more good work can be done.

There will also be a hummus cook off from 6-9pm, in honor of one of Craig's favorite foods. Local chefs will enter their best hummus recipe, which will be judged by partygoers who buy a $5 tasting card (all proceeds going to the Fellowship Fund). The winning chef receives a $50 gift certificate to Whisk (whisknyc.com), with runners-up receiving iPhone cases.

Bike Pool for James Langergaard

New York City

T.A. Rides for James on Queens Boulevard

This past August, a young cyclist and a beloved T.A. volunteer, James Langergaard, was struck and killed by a car at Queens Boulevard and 69th Street.

This Friday, T.A. will be holding a special Queens Boulevard Bike Pool ride in honor of James.  Please come out and join us to help send a strong message to the community that these casualties of the Boulevard will not be forgotten, and that our work to prevent future tragedies is ever-increasing. The ride will pause at the site of James' crash to dedicate his ghost bike.

Where: Ride meets at the Queens foot of the Queensboro Bridge bike/pedestrian path (Queens Plaza North at Crescent Street in Long Island City), ride ends in Forest Hills

When: Friday, October 2--Riders depart at 6:30 pm

Monthly bike commuter pools on Queens Boulevard are led by T.A.'s Queens Committee to provide cyclists with a safe ride home, and build support for protected space for cyclists on the borough's most iconic roadway.

It is a short, slow ride and every rider's presence will have a significant impact.

Ghost Bike Installation and Dedication in Memory of Julian Miller

New York City

Ghost Bike Installation and Dedication in Memory of Julian Miller

Family and friends will dedicate a Ghost Bike in honor of Julian Miller this Sunday afternoon at the location of his fatal crash.

Everyone is invited to come together with them
to mourn his loss and celebrate his life. 

Please bring flowers, candles and love.

More information on Julian and Ajile, who also died in the crash is here

Ghost Bike installation for John R. Yates

Baltimore

A memorial Ghost Bike will be place at the intersection of North Maryland Avenue and East Lafayette Street this Sunday, 8/9, a bit after 6:00 PM, to remember John R. Yates, who was killed by a truck at this site.  All are welcome.  The ghost bike is currently at Velocipede… but all involved consider this a gesture from the bicycling community and the larger Baltimore community, not from a single group.

More information can be found here.

Get involved with the NYC Street Memorial Project!

New York City

Get involved with the NYC Street Memorial Project!  For more than 5 years, the NYC Ghost Bike Project, Pedestrian Memorial Project, and Ghostbikes.org have helped New Yorkers remember the lives lost on our streets and foster a culture of mutual respect.

The Street Memorial Project seeks volunteers to help in various ways--and we are looking for new ideas, too.  We need people to work on the web site, install memorials, care for existing memorials, contribute art, and organize the Annual Memorial Ride and Walk on the first Sunday in January (the next one is 1/3/10).  We need your energy and ideas to keep this project going.

We want to meet you.  Please come to either or both of our casual pot lucks:
Sunday 7/19, 5-8pm, Sunset Park, Brooklyn
Thursday 7/23, 7 pm, 140 Metropolitan #1 at Berry, Williamsburg, Brooklyn

For more information, contact Rich at rich.krollman (at) gmail.com or 718.938.9836.

This Sunday, 7/19, we will be joining Rev. Billy Talen, Green Party Candidate for Mayor of New York City, and the Life After Shopping Gospel Choir at the next installment of his weekly BBQ Revival Series.

Each week, Billy and the choir will host a BBQ/picnic in a new park. These gatherings aim to bring together local organizations and groups from all of the fabulous 500 neighborhoods across NYC. There will be performances by Billy and the choir, presentations from associated community groups and time to mingle with a host of new friends. This is your chance to come get involved!

This week's revival is in Sunset Park Brooklyn. This neighborhood's namesake park is set on a hill (the second highest point in Brooklyn) giving visitors some of the best views in all of NYC. We'll be watching the sun set on the harbor and lower Manhattan.

The neighborhood is facing an upcoming re-zoning by the city planning department that could allow for out-of-scale buildings that will block views from the park.

Meeting point:
Enter the park at the 41st St and 5th Ave entrance and walk uphill into the park. We'll be in the center field at the top.

Please bring food and beverages to share!

Ride of Silence

Dallas-Fort Worth

Join cyclists worldwide in a silent slow-paced ride (max. 12 mph/20 kph) in honor of those who have been injured or killed while cycling on public roadways.  Rides happen in most major cities; see RideofSilence.org for locations.

This event is not organized by the NYC Street Memorial Project.  See RideofSilence.org for local rides and organizer contact information.

The 11th 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 11th Annual Blessing of the Bikes.

Reverend Thom 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. 

This is a particularly special year -- a large portion of the Cathedral has been closed for years in order to repair the damage from a fire in 2001, and this is the first time since then that we will be back in the Cathedral’s beautiful main section.

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/.

Louisville Memorial Ride

Louisville

This ride will be a casually paced somber memorial coinciding with the Ghost Bike Memorial Ride taking place in New York. The route will pass by the below locations for an approximate 11 mile loop through the city. The list in no way reflects the actual number of cyclists and pedestrians injured and killed in Louisville every year. Unfortunately we can't be everywhere and the highlands and downtown areas are likely to get the best turnout for riders and provide some of the safer riding conditions in the city as well as containing a higher concentration of incidents involving motor vehicles with bicyclists or pedestrians.

While riding please keep in mind to stay in the group as there is safety in numbers and we will be moving through intersections with clearance in mind, not traffic signals. As always, stay alert

Meet up: National City Bank on Bardstown Road at Douglas Blvd

Ride approx: 11am

Bicyclist Killed (Lance Livesay)
1529 Bardstown Road

Bicyclist Injured (Mike Purvis)
Bardstown Road at Eastern Parkway
