The Reed College Bike Co-Op is now named the Mark Angeles Memorial Bike Co-Op.

Mark Angeles was the 22-year-old Reed graduate who was killed in a collision while biking on SE Gladstone back in May. Angeles was an active member of the Reed community and was manager of the Co-Op.

On Tuesday Angeles’ friends and family organized a memorial event and bicycle ride in his honor.
