then and now ...... Gainesville series

bike safety memorial
one of six  sculptures 
in place along  the 
 depot ave. bike trail
built as a volunteer community project  
 to honor the victims of a 1996 
crash that took the lives of two 
members of the  Gainesville  Cycling  Club 
 and injured four others.
bicycle frames and parts from the accident 
are encased in the memorial sculptures .
over the years,,
the memorial has often been neglected 
the area has been under reconstruction 
 for several years and only recently 
have the structures once again become visible.
