Sandy Carson GHOST BIKE Austin “For the past five years, I have been documenting ghost bikes and roadside memorials. As a bicyclist myself, I became drawn to these ghostly shrines on road trips and bike tours nationwide. The bikes mark the locations where a person has been struck or killed by a motor vehicle. Normally painted white, chained to a pole and often decorated by family members, the bikes serve as reminders for drivers to share the road.” See more of Sandy Carson’s work at www.texasobserverorg/ eyeontexas.
