This bike is a memorial for a widley loved member of the Wellfleet community. It was created as part of the "Ghost Bikes Project"( a project that remembers those injured or killed on bicycles) by two of Miles best friends. Miles was creamated and so there is no grave or tombstone to act as a memorial. Allowing the bike to remain where it is helps Miles' family friends and community memorialize him, it gives them a place to remember what an amazing young man we lost.

Please don't remove the last memorial we have for Miles.  

It has come to my attention the bike has been removed by someone not associated with the authorities or MassDOT so we are requesting that a new bike be allowed to rest on the side of Rt. 6. 

To:
The Massachusetts Department of Transportation
Allow the memorial "Ghost Bike" or a similar new memorial bike for Miles Tibbetts to remain on the side of Rt. 6 in Wellfleet.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      as someone who's been on the rough side of a whole bunch of bike accidents, this is terrifyingly pertinent and also just more than so sad. in all honesty if something bad happened to me i'd want the spot I ended at to be "our" spot as a memorial. support your loved ones. respect everyone on the road. save the memorial.
