Ghost Ride: Norfolk

In the past year, two cyclists have been struck and killed by automobile drivers in Norfolk.

Next Friday, June 26th, we will have a special Critical Mass ride to remember those cyclists who have been killed, and remember that there have been no legal consequences for their killers. We will place Ghost Bikes on Tidewater Drive and Little Creek Road to mark the spots where Michael Holmes and Kevin Bragg were killed.

Ghost Ride: Norfolk will start and end at Blair Middle School on Colley Avenue in Ghent, start time 6pm. Total mileage will be 17 miles. For cyclists preferring a shorter route, there will also be the normal Critical Mass ride through Ghent and Downtown Norfolk. The route of Ghost Ride: Norfolk can be seen here:

Just a note of thanks for a blog post you wrote in June 2009 about the Ghost Ride and Michael Holmes. His daughter is my daughter's roommate and asked if I would work on her family tree, in particular her dad, who was hit and killed by a car while riding his bike. I found your blog and showed her and she was moved to tears having never known this ride occurred.
