Ghost Bike On Display In Memory Of Bicyclist

Ghost Bike On Display In Memory Of Bicyclist
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Drivers in rush hour here at 49th and Kiwanis are getting a grim roadside reminder of a tragedy. A Sioux Falls bicycle shop has set up a ghost bike in memory of Natasha Adams.

Spoke-N-Sport spray-painted this kids' bicycle that will be on display here at the crash scene for the next year. Spoke-N-Sport's owner says many times, victims in bicycle crashes are all too soon forgotten in the public's mind. So this is an eye-catching symbol of a life lost and the potential risks all bicyclists face.

“We don't want to distract drivers but we do want people to know that this is somewhere that something tragic happened.  There's families involved, there's parents, there's kids, they're going to have that missing out of their life for the rest of their lives.  There's guilt, there's shame, there is going to be a lot of emotional stuff going on with the result of this,” Chad Pickard with Spoke-N-Sport said.

This is the third time in the past five years Spoke-N-Sport has displayed a ghost bike in Sioux Falls.
