    That Ghost Bike in La Opinion is nicely done. It begins something like this…


    White bikes mark the place where cyclists have perished in Southern California’s streets.
    Some have flowers, others have photographs or poems in memory. Others only have a name and date.
    For many, these white bikes chained to posts on Los Angeles’s street corners and in other cities in Southern California, don’t register more than a simple glance to satisfy one’s curiosity. For others, they are a sad footprint that shows the place where a life was taken, leaving the memories of a grandparent, a child, or a sibling.
    Also, these “ghost bikes” or “bicicletas fantasmas” are a reminder for motorists.
