Ghost Bike In Stoke Newington

Ghost bikeMemorial to Lucinda Ferrier

We’ve seen them around New York, but this is the first time we’ve spotted a ghost bike in London. This white cycle, across the road from Stoke Newington station in northeast London, commemorates the life of Lucinda Ferrier, who died while biking past this spot earlier in the year. According to this map, a few other ghost bikes are starting to crop up around the capital now, offering a poignant memory of a life senselessly lost and maybe – just maybe – reminding passing drivers of the vulnerability of their fellow road users.

    There is one outside the organic pub on kingsland road where a guy got crushed between the railing and a large hgv :O(

    I stopped at the Smudge Ghostbike on Kingsland Road this morning to put the card that is normally attached to it back on – it had fallen into the road. There will be a couple more going up after the accidents of the last couple of weeks.

    I spotted half a ghost bike (back wheel and frame only) chained to the railings outside the blue bike shop on Essex Road this morning. Spied from a bus so can’t be sure.

    OMG this is the one outside my dad’s flat in London (Hugh Gaitskell House) This is really freaky because, I just randomly clicked on a picture for my homework and it came up with this one :) xx
