Ghost Bike Stolen On Morrissey Blvd.

Written by Boston Biker on Nov 15

Dot Rider Blog reports that the Ghost Bike On Morrissey Boulevard for the man struck and killed there has been stolen.

A Dotbiker was passing by the site of the Ghost Bike and noticed it was gone. He looked over and saw it leaned against a trash barrel, the lock was cut and thrown in the barrel. He returned the bike to the spot and tied the bike to the post with the cut lock. A day or two later the bike was completely gone.

We checked with the State Police and DCR who we had cleared the installation with back in September. They indicated no one had taken it down at their behest. So, who did?

Maybe someone else can put one up, this time being sure to make it clear that the bike is not ride-able, a simple removal of the pedals and chain should be enough to deter thieves.
