Memorial ride for Christophe Le Canne, NYC

In respect and solidarity with the tragedy in Miami of the hit and run of Christophe Le Canne, Time’s Up is hosting a tribute ride in NYC.

Miami Solidarity Ride
Sunday, February 7th, 2010
2:00 PM
Grand Army Plaza, Brooklyn
Summary: Tribute ride for Miami and their recent response to the tragic death of Christophe Le Canne.

On 1/17/2010, Christophe Le Canne, 44, was killed in a bike lane from behind, reportedly by a hit and run drunk driver and delayed emergency response in Key Biscayne, Florida. On 1/24/2010 1000′s of Miami cyclists came out on a memorial ride in Christophe’s name. Now is your opportunity to pay tribute to Miami for their brave action during their time of grief.

A saying of Christophe’s is ‘The Journey is the thing!’. So we will visit ghosts bikes, roadways where there are, used to be, or could be bike lanes, and maybe water or bridges on our travels.

The day after our ride the suspect will have his first hearing.

Please see some details about this case:

    I went on this ride in Miami. It was a great day. Sadly, the Ghost Bike has been abruptly removed by the City. We are looking in to it. And as if that wasn’t bad enough, they removed it on the same day as the prelim hearing for the defendant (who, thankfully, had his bail revoked because he lied to the judge about having only one passport).
