Yesterday afternoon the Public Works Department relocated the Christophe Le Canne 'ghost bike' just a few yards away from the Bear Cut Bridge, if you recall the memorial was removed from the bridge in early February. I think the new location is ideal and hopefully everyone is pleased with it. The bike was placed up high on a post with some mulch spread around it, I commend PWD for the nice work.

Thanks to the PWD Rickenbacker Causeway Division for reaching out to the cycling community and handling this with care, I encourage those who complained to thank PWD for their efforts by calling (305) 361-2833 or sending them an email. Cyclists and recreational users of the Rickenbacker voiced their opinions and the Department of Public Works responded accordingly.
