Bicyclists ride across the Bronx in honor of those killed in bike crashes
Bike advocates are riding in remembrance of riders who have been killed in city traffic incidents.
Bicyclists rode from Grand Concourse to Throgs Neck, stopping along the way at memorials to fellow riders.
It's part of the fifth annual Ghost Bike, hosted by the Transportation Alternatives Bronx Committee.
Advocates say so far, five people have died this year riding their bikes in New York City, four of whom were from the Bronx. They say just last week, there were two fatal bike crashes. Last year, there were eight in total.
Advocates want to see changes to avoid more loss of life on the roads with fixes to safety infrastructure that they see as lacking.
