A Ghost Bike Appears at the Streetside Shrine for Nils Linke, Killed at Turk and Masonic Last Week

The streetside shrine for Nils Linkeaka Yannick among his friends, now has a ghost bike.

[UPDATE: It's a mystery to me where it came from. See comments.] Seems as if this was a project from The Derailleurs: San Francisco Bay Area Bike Dance. A memorial ride is planned.

This is the scene at the intersection of Turk Street and Masonic Avenue this afternoon:

The four handbills reprinting news reports taped to poles in the area were methodically taken down, but this bike will be harder to remove so it should stick around a little longer.

R.I.P. Yannick.

    The Derailleurs can’t take credit for this one, actually – we wish we could, because it’s beautiful, but ours isn’t done yet. Cheers to the speedy anonymous artist(s), and here’s hoping it stays around.
