8 x 10″ ONE-COLOR BLOCK PRINT, printed on black lightweight high-quality printmaking paper.

 

In cycling culture, when one of our own dies on the road, we put up a memorial to that fallen rider. It’s a bike all painted in white and we call it a ghost bike. It’s both a way to remember the friends we’ve lost and to remind drivers to share the road.

 

When a cyclist gets hit, the most common excuse from the driver is that they didn’t see the cyclist. That’s no excuse for putting someone else’s life in danger.

 

Note from the artist: I don’t make a lot of art from a place of pain and anger, but this is one of those times. I’ve been buzzed by careless, scared, or angry drivers too many times to count and I have plenty of friends who have gotten hit. It’s absurd that I’m risking my life when I ride, to someone who’s just too impatient to wait for enough space to pass. No destination is as important as a life.
