A few folks in the JP biking community are organizing a ghost bike install and rememberance ride around the Chestnut Hill Reservoir for Kelsey Rennebohm who was struck and killed by a bus last week with the support of Kelsey’s brother, who is also a bicyclist. (Please see Shane’s comprehensive coverage on Kelsey from earlier this week)
More info from the Facebook event page Please spread the word, and ride safe.
Huntington Ave & Forsyth St, Boston, MA 02115
Please join the greater Boston area bicycling community at Huntington and Forsyth at 8:15PM to place a Ghost Bike for Kelsey Rennebohm.
Following that, we’ll ride to Chestnut Hill Reservoir. Details on the ride are tentative and dependent on some logistics and scouting the planned area, so please check back soon.
Independent of your RSVP status on Facebook, we request you privately RSVP here for an approximate headcount for logistics: http://www.doodle.com/x4smimtinvs8dwn6
Attendance on the ride requires respectful, non-confrontational conduct and following traffic laws wherever possible; on multi-lane roads, please stick to the right-most travel lane, and leave some room on the left side both as a buffer from cars and for corkers to pass. We are in the process of seeking assistance from Boston, Brookline, and Northeastern Police.
Please have at least a front light – ideally front and rear lights.
The family is unable to attend but has requested that we record photos and video, and post descriptions of the ride for them to see. You are invited to share your photos, videos, and comments here, on youtube, etc.
