It’s become a tradition to place an old bike painted white on the side of the road where a cyclist was killed.

This guy deserves a monument.

“…..He (Ian Hibell) was also welcomed by a Dayak headman in Borneo and African chiefs in the days before every jungle trail had been trodden by backpackers and gap-year students. He estimated that he had used more than 800 cycle repair kits after covering at least 6,000 miles a year for 40 years, the distance from Earth to the Moon.”
