Ghost Bike Story in Today's Inquirer

6 YO Riley Boyle's memorial is highlighted on the MLK Drive path is highlighted in an Inquirer story about Ghost Bikes which are memorials for fallen cyclists.

There was only one reported death in the media in Philadelphia in 2008 although they generally miss a couple. I am going to assume until I hear otherwise that there were less than the 5 bicycle deaths in the city last year.

In New Jersey bicycle deaths in 2008 doubled in spite of a decline in total traffic fatalities.
