Ghost Bike Visits the Don

A 'ghost bike' chained to the railing near the accident location

The hill where the accident occurred

Just south of Pottery Road on the Lower Don Trail, the path rises over a small hill and then descends down a fairly steep slope going underneath a disused railway bridge. It was here on October 20 that a man was killed in a head-on bicycle-bicycle crash.

You can get going pretty fast along this stretch and it can be difficult to pass someone at speed. This accident can be chalked up to carelessness. A memorial ghost bike has been chained to the railing to mark the spot of the accident.

I hope it doesn't become a permanent feature of the valley. Take it down after a year. We don't need memorials everywhere, especially in natural parks.
