The Annual Memorial Ride and Walk brings New Yorkers together to remember pedestrians and cyclists killed in our city over the past year.  This will mark the eighth year that this event has occurred.  Riders will visit the site of each ghost bike, a white-painted memorial for cyclists, installed since 2012.  Please help us show solidarity with the family and friends of those lost by joining us for this important event.  Bring flowers and other items to honor those lost.
