Friends and street-safety advocates dedicated a white “ghost bike” to Madison Jane Lyden, the 23-year-old Australian who was riding her bike on Central Park West between 66th and 67th Street when she was hit and killed by a truck driver last month.
Ghost bikes are placed near the sight of a deadly crash to honor the memory of the rider. The bike was draped in an Australian flag, and Lyden’s friends placed photographs on it.
The city is researching ways to make the avenue safer in the wake of Lyden’s death, including the possibility of adding a two-way protected bike lane.
