Honor Ride in Bethlehem for Fallen Cyclist Patrick Ytsma

The Coalition for Appropriate Transportation will be a hosting a memorial ride for Patrick Ytsma, who died on December 8th after being struck from behind by an elderly driver four days earlier. The ride through downtown Bethlehem will stop at the crash site on the Fahy (New Street) Bridge for a moment of silence, and will be accompanied by City of Bethlehem police on bicycles. The ride will end at Payrow Plaza between Bethlehem City Hall and the Library, with cyclists gathering to remember Patrick's contributions to bicycle advocacy.

Lights and helmets are required. Out of respect for Patrick and his family, organizers ask that riders obey all traffic laws and avoid carrying signs during the ride.

When: December 22nd 2011 at 6:30PM.
Where: Parking lot at Main and W. Lehigh Streets in Bethlehem, PA.
Departs: 7:00 PM Rain or Shine.
