If you visit London you may see one of the many "Ghost bikes" that have been erected to cyclists who have lost their lives on Londons roads. This is a
very sad story.
A new project in 2011 is London Remembers which tracks all memorials in London, including ghost bikes.
The problem is London is not the easiest place to be a cyclist. London is known for big red busses and big black cabs, not to mention the amount of
dodgy drivers on Londons narrow streets. But the cyclists too ride around like they have no care in the world, many don't wear helmets and wear their
ipods, while hurtling through the traffic.
I can certainly understand the appeal of riding, to avoid the public transport system and for health reasons, but London is not Amsterdam where the
city caters for cyclists.
