Cycle Aware Wellington

Memorial ride - two year anniversary

Two years have passed since hundreds of Wellington riders gathered to mark the death of two riders.

On 26 June 2008 Wellington cyclists organised a memorial ride as a mark of respect for the two riders, Des Eyre and Superindendant Steve Fitzgerald, killed on 19 June. Cyclists gathered at Parliament. After a brief opportunity to speak, we departed Parliament, and rode along Thorndon Quay and Hutt Road to Petone Roundabout. We paused there, then rode back to Wellington. The ride commemorated and honoured the lives of the riders.

We remember them.
