Thanks to Mark Sussman for sharing info about a memorial for the bicyclist killed on Friday: “Please meet at the corner NW of Mass & NJ Ave at 6pm on THURSDAY for @jimpagels Ghost Bike Memorial #bikedc. Please wear white.”
“Memorial & Bike Ride for Jim Pagels
Massachussets & New Jersey Ave NW
Please join us to remember Jim Pagels, a passionate urbanist and safe streets advocate, to become DC’s latest victim of traffic violence on April 10.
***UPDATE*** We will be meeting at the NW corner of Massachusetts Ave & New Jersey Ave NW for the memorial and ghost bike installation. We will then bike to the Wilson Building for a moment of silence.
Please wear white.
Strict mask and social distancing protocol will be observed. For those not attending in person, keep an eye on the discussion for more info on the live stream.”
I’m absolutely gutted that one of my best friends, @jimpagels, was killed on Friday by a driver while he was biking. For Jim, who was a passionate urbanist and safe streets advocate, to become DC’s latest victim of traffic violence is infuriating as it is devastating. pic.twitter.com/fmYwHPqRC4
