Last night, five ghost bikes were placed in four locations around the city. Eight cyclists showed up in SE Portland to load their bike trailers with the white bikes, signs and tools to install them. According to reports, onlookers were very curious and everyone was supportive.

Here’s a quote from someone on the ride:

“Ghost bikes are something I had wanted to get going a long time ago…I must say it felt so good to see the bikes installed, I felt a great deal of relief actually, I had been searching for a way to make a difference and at last it was happening.”

The group behind the effort has just posted a temporary website at GhostBike.org.

Check out some photos of all the ghost bikes installed so far.

NOTE: At BikePortland, we love your comments. We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive. That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with tact and respect. If you see an inconsiderate or inappropriate comment, please contact us and we'll take a look at it right away. Thank you — Jonathan and Michael

    Thank you to Forrest and everyone else for the ghost bikes around town. The one on Sandy Blvd at 37th is especially visible. Very well done!
