A Ghost bike for Deep Lee (Min Joo Lee)

Over the weekend, James Thomas (on Twitter, he’s @jamesWPThomas) has been working on the ghost bike for Min Joo Lee, who was called Deep Lee by her friends.  She was killed there on 3 October by a lorry while she was cycling to St. Martins College at King’s Cross.

He’s going to install the bike at the junction Euston Road / York Way this Wednesday (26 October) at 6.30pm.

I’m really grateful that James took the initiative and think the installation of the bike could be a good opportunity to remember Min Joo Lee.

I’d really appreaciate if her friends and fellow cyclists showed up next Wednesday to commemorate the tragic death of Min Joo Lee.

I’ll be there and bring some flowers.

Update: On 3 November, there will also memorial ceremony for her at the university. It starts at 6pm at Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design (Granary Building, 1 Granary Square London N1C 4AA)

Update II: Today, I walked over to meet James Thomas personally for the first time and had a chat with him. Here’s a photo of James (right) and Adrian Wiehahn working on the bike in his lunch break.
