**Memorial Ride for Wayne Richardson**

  • Washington Monument 700 North Charles Street Baltimore, MD, 21201 United States (map)

Join us in riding in memory of Wayne Richardson. 

Riding together and placing a ghost bike is our way of dedicating time and space to remember Wayne, bringing our community together to support each other through difficult times, and demonstrating our commitment to continue to fight for streets that are built to keep people safe.

We'll meet at the north side of the Washington Monument at 12:00pm, and the ride will leave at 12:15pm. We’ll ride to Madison and Kenwood where we’ll place his ghost bike around 12:45pm. This will be a slow 2.5 mile ride mostly on the Monument Street protected bike lane, and all are welcome to join.

On July 30th, Wayne Richardson was killed after being struck from behind by a hit-and-run driver while riding his bike near the 2600 block of East Madison. We had the honor of speaking with his sister, and have shared some of Wayne’s story here.

Our stance has always been to respect the family’s wishes when it comes to how we both discuss and honor the death of someone they cared for deeply, and they are supportive of this memorial ride. Members of Wayne’s family will be joining us for the ride and ghost bike dedication.
