I passed this ghost bike memorial whilst riding a notoriously scary piece of road in San Diego. I didnt know A-Tip or how it happened, but he was surely loved. Stencils, stickers, memorial ride cards, and numerous other pieces adorned his name. There has been an effort to start placing ghost bikes in Tucson, several of which are placed around the University/Downtown area. Perhaps they will start appearing in L.A. Hopefully a reminder for people to slow the fuck down and share the road, maybe.
