These photos are from the memorial bike ride held in memory of Jenna Morrison, a wonderful woman who was recently killed in a tragic cycling accident on Sterling Road and Dundas Street West. Hundreds of people came out at 7:30 AM on the morning of November 14th to ride together for Jenna. It was incredibly touching to see such an outpouring of love and support. Geoffrey Bercarich installed a ghost bike on the corner of Sterling and Dundas, while Jenna’s friends and family addressed the crowd that had gathered around the bike. The ghost bike remains, covered in notes and flowers for Jenna. My heart goes out to her family and friends. I can’t imagine the pain they must be feeling at this time.
In order to prevent this from happening again, please sign this petition for proper side guards on trucks. There will be a fundraiser to raise money for Jenna’s five year old son Lucas at The Garrison on Thursday December 15th. It looks like it will be a fabulous evening of music, dancing and remembering.
