Times Up! has organized a memorial ride to commemorate all the bikers that were killed in 2006. It's a full day of riding, with two possible routes (Bronx/north Manhattan, or Brooklyn/Queens). It's also going to be beautiful and unnaturally warm, which leaves very little reason not to pedal off some of those holiday pies. Details below:



Join us this year as we ride in honor of all the cyclists who were killed on the streets of New York City in 2006. We ride together in love and respect for those who were needlessly struck down. We ride together in outrage and anger, sharing their stories- those that made the papers and those that didn't- recognizing the fact that none of these deaths had to happen.

Working with the Visual Resistance ghost bike project which uses memorial installations as reminders of tragedies that took place on otherwise anonymous street corners and as a quiet statement in support of a biker's right to safe travel, the Memorial Ride seeks to bring bikers together to honor our fellow cyclists while bringing attention to the fact that all NYC bikers travel the same unsafe streets and face the same risks every day.

Come to one memorial or ride with us all day. Please bring flowers, love, and rage.
Check listing for meet up times and locations.

Come to one memorial or ride with us all day. Check back on 1/6 and early morning 1/7 for weather updates, cancellations, and rescheduling.

I was really hoping to get to debut this track on the interweb the first time it was mentioned to me, but alas I was beat to it. The thought of a combination of what I had heard of St. Vincent with this Nico classic seemed like a perfect union. And obviously I was not disappointed.
