A Quote From URS





























"We don't negotiate with politicians."

Urban Repair Squad Member Alvin (May 2009)

A Ghost Bike remains a year after it was first installed in memory of Brian Clark, 50 at Tretheway and Tepper. Despite a bike lane having been proposed years ago along the same route nothing has been done to make this street safer for cyclists.
