Peter Kang was killed while riding his bike last week. The driver was caught after a police chase. The memorial ride was this morning.
A group of riders gathered at the start. The mood was particularly somber as there was a memorial ride a little over a week ago, and everyone knew that there would be another in two days time.
Paying our respects with a moment of silence at Tom Samson’s ghost bike.
Just before we turned north, a driver cut very close to the pack, one rider banged his fist against the car, and then the driver started driving erratically. We had hem him in so that he wouldn’t run anyone over.
On the ride home, a glimpse of the ghost bike for Adrian Dudzicki.
