Ride of Silence and Ghost Bike Installation, DuBois, PA
Dr. Albert Varacallo was killed July 8, 2010 by 28-year old Scott Sago while riding his bike. Sago made a left in front of Dr. Varacallo, throwing him off his bike, resulting in fatal injuries.
On Sunday, September 19, Dr Varacallo’s family gathered with cyclists in DuBois, PA for a ride of silence memorial ride and Ghost Bike installation.
Josh Karns, from PA Walks and Bikes shot some footage of the event and posted this video. From the PA Walks and Bikes site: I made the trek from Harrisburg to DuBois to show my solidarity to the bicyclists involved and to encourage them to speak out for complete streets and safer roads. While there, I shot some video of the event. The words of those involved tell the story of the day so much better than I can. Please watch the short video clip above for the whole story.

Our deepest sympathies go out to Dr. Varacallo’s family.
