Re: “One grumpy guy in Durham thinks ghost bikes are ugly, and now they've been removed

To "CARNOT": I have never seen any of the bikes in Raleigh. The one in Raleigh was dented, clearly not a working bike, chained to a street sign on a busy road, lying sideways, and was painted bright orange. There was no sign and there were no flowers. My comment referenced the bike I saw in Raleigh on Falls of Neuse. Thank you.

"There is no way anyone could interpret the ghost bikes as "vandalized or abandoned or trash of some sort." They are bikes painted with a fresh coat of bright white paint. They have attractive flower arrangements hung on them. And most of them have a small sign serving as a memorial (lest anyone be confused why they are there!)."

Re: “One grumpy guy in Durham thinks ghost bikes are ugly, and now they've been removed

I saw an orange bike chained to a sign in Raleigh and reported it... it was NOT because I was on a power trip or needed to "be on the HOA Board" (low blow). It was because it was ugly, had been there a while, and had (still have) NO IDEA that it was in honor of something or someone. I thought it was vandalized or abandoned or trash of some sort. Ridiculous that the Indy would publish this attack on a guy who probably was trying to do his civic duty in reporting litter. Horrible excuse for "journalism" here, even for a free magazine.
