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.
