Join Commissioner Levine Cava for a 'Ghost Bike' dedication to memorialize cyclist Bharath Reddy Narahari and announcement of local bicycle and pedestrian safety Dead Serious Committee.

In an effort to raise awareness about cycling safety and to help reduce the number of cycling and pedestrian accidents, County Commissioner Daniella Levine Cava and other cycling advocates will dedicate a 'ghost bike' in memory of cyclist Bharath Reddy Narahari. The event will take place on Sunday, April 8, 10:30 a.m. at the Black Point Marina, near the location of the fatal cycling accident.

During the event, Commissioner Levine Cava will announce the formation of a local bicycle and pedestrian safety committee. “We are dead serious,” said Commissioner Levine Cava. “We need to bridge the gaps between motorists, cyclists, pedestrians and law enforcement.” The Commissioner’s husband, Robert Cava MD, was recently the victim of a hit and run accident. He was thrown from his bike, breaking an arm. Fortunately his injuries were not fatal. “We must do more to educate all the users of our roads on their rights and responsibilities. Working together to educate and engage the public, we can reduce injuries and deaths.”

The event is open to the public. For more information, please contact Commissioner Levine Cava’s district office at 305-378-667
