Show Notes

A crowd of friends, family, and fellow bicyclists gathered at the City Market Park Sunday, April 14 to commemorate the life of Anthony Saluto as a ghost bike rack was installed in his memory. Anthony’s family said the park is a great spot for the bike rack because of his love for the City Market. Anthony also used to work as a barista at Opera House Coffee, just around the corner. Anthony was struck and killed while riding his bicycle on Independence Avenue Sunday, April 3, 2016. His mother, Lorrie Lomas, said Anthony was riding to the City Market to meet up with friends and watch a Royals game. Karen Campbell, with BikeWalkKC, said the family reached out to the organization to discuss the possibility of creating a permanent memorial. To Campbell’s knowledge, she said this is the only ghost bike rack in the Kansas City area.
