It happens

A cyclist was killed in May on a roundabout that I occasionally use. It is a tricky section of the road where you have to have 360 vision and in rush hour the traffic is always trying to beat the lights.

Her friends put up a white bicycle in memorial. I think it is part of the Ghost Bike art memorial project. Has it made me more wary of traffic? No. I think the more people cycle the safer it will become. Every time I pass I think of this woman and her devoted friends and I pedal harder.
