Spotted: A Ghost Bike for Joe Mavec

20120813ghostbike

SPOTTED BY: Martin Reis

WHERE: St. Clair and Wychwood Avenues

WHEN: Monday, August 13, 8 a.m.

WHAT: Joe Mavec, a 47-year-old man, was killed one week ago while bicycling, after catching his tire in a piece of disused streetcar track near the Wychwood Barns. This morning, the bike-activist group Advocacy for Respect for Cyclists installed a ghost bike near the site of Mavec’s fatal fall. ARC has installed many of the white-painted bikes over the past decade, as a way of memorializing cycling-accident victims.
