Memorial Ride for Justin Murphy meets at NORTH Bicycle Sport Shop
About a month and a half back a cyclist named Justin Murphy was struck and killed in a hit-and-run collision with a large truck up in North Austin. This evening there will be a memorial ride to honor the life of a fallen cyclist, and to help raise awareness in the area of cyclists on the streets. This ride meets at the NORTH Bicycle Sport Shop location.
Memorial ride for Justin Murphy
Date: This Wednesday, March 7 2012
Time: 5:00 to 7:00 pm
Location: Bicycle Sport Shop Research Blvd. Location.
Specifics: This memorial ride is dedicated to Justin Murphy, a person who used his bicycle as a means of transportation and was killed while walking his bike. Justin was killed on January 23 2012, on the service road of 183 north and McNeil.
The purpose of this memorial is to honor his life and to pay respect to his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Murphy. We will gather at the parking lot of Bicycle Sport Shop and we will ride our bikes heading north for about two miles to the location of the crash; where we will erect a ghost bike memorial.
We will gather to honor the life of a member of our community, a son, a brother, a friend and a neighbor, not just a cyclist. And to send a message to everyone of our lost, his sister Ryann Reedy, teacher at Smithson Valley Middle school in Spring Branch will try to attend the memorial..
You participation is greatly appreciated, feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. News media will be present at the memorial.
I am looking forward to seeing you.
Be there by 5pm, as I figure this is a ride that combines multiple riding disciplines and roadies like to be on time for things.
