Albany Ride of Silence – 5/21/14

A group of 18 riders toured the sites of the local ghost bikes to commemorate the 2014 Ride of Silence.

We visited Jose Perez (August 3, 2006 – age 60; killed by SUV, Broadway at Quay St., Albany), Diva De Loayza (June 6, 2007 – age 40; killed by car, Western Ave. at Homestead, Albany), Nicholas Richichi (October 19, 2007 – age 53, killed by motor coach, Fuller Rd., Colonie), and Paul J. Merges, Jr. (November 24, 2012 – age 45, killed by pickup truck/drunk driver, Manning and Roosevelt, Albany). The placement of decorations at each site is depicted in the photos (with the lead photo being Paul and Diva’s ghost bikes that accompanied the ride).

The ghost bikes within the Albany city limits have been removed.)
