Ghost bikes become beautiful flower sculptures, a shrine to 5 cyclists killed
A mangled eyeglasses frame with a cyclist's mirror rest on top of one set of handle bars.
The pickup driver, Charles Pickett Jr. of Battle Creek, has been charged with five counts of second degree murder and four counts of reckless driving causing serious body impairment. He was arrest near the accident scene.
Barb Lang, a resident who lives nearby, brought her great-grand children to see the memorial.
"Since this has happened, people are slowing down," Lang said. Cars have a habit of speeding up the hill on North Westnedge Avenue once they get north of G Avenue, she said.
These are the victims of the deadly Kalamazoo bicycle crash
"It's just sad," said Virginia Borgman, who drove from Allegan with a friend to see the memorial and pay respects to the cyclists. "I just had to see it."
"I would be very hesitant to getting out on a bike nowadays," Borgman said. "My son rode a bike to and from work (in Allegan) and it used to make me so nervous. He was once followed and threatened by a motorist for riding his bike on the road."
Cheryl Sherwood was making a 20-mile ride from Pine Lake to Kalamazoo Monday when she stopped to look at the memorial. An avid cyclist, ride organizer and co-founder of a strength and conditioning company called Athletic Mentors, Sherwood said she knew one the cyclists from Richland who died.
"She was riding one of my bikes that I sold her a number years ago," Sherwood said. "It's hard."
"We know there's a risk being out here. We do what we can to stay safe and avoid roads that are dangerous," Sherwood said.
On Sunday, hundreds of cyclists rode the same route to honor the victims during the Peace-Pedal-Pray memorial bike ride.
