In Memoriam


Easily the most poignant moment in all the years I have been riding a bike. At left, Wes hands off the ghost bike to Daniel Hersh's sons, Stephen and Greg. Daniel died after being hit by an SUV on Shore Drive in Virginia Beach a week ago.









The display appears to be the first ghost bike display in Hampton Roads ever. It is locked up near the eastbound corner of Shore and Starfish Road. Wes marked the site where Kenneth Craver was killed on Witchduck Road last May with another ghost bike.


At left is Wes Cheney's editorial, published in the Virginian Pilot yesterday.

Read the story about today's group ride to display the ghost bikes.

Read about some of the other ways that Wes has given back to the cycling community.

Thanks, Liz, for all your support this past week. Even the little stuff helps. I'm planning a retreat to my garage & kayak for a while now...

Kudos to Wes. I definitely got choked up as his boys locked up that bike. What a great turnout.
