Erection date: 12/7/2013

Site: Phillipine De Gerin-Ricard (1 memorial)

E1, Whitechapel High Street, Aldgate East tube

Our photographs were taken a week after Phillipine’s death as we joined another 1,500 cyclists in a protest ride past the site of the collision.  

De Gerin-Ricard is the third cyclist killed on this so-called Cycle Superhighway, designed to provide "safer, faster and more direct journeys into the city".  Two deaths occurred on CS2 in 2011: Brian Dorling and Svitlana Tereschenko.

The official spokesperson said “We call on the Mayor to immediately set a timetable for the redesign of Cycle Superhighway 2, and to honour his commitment made during the 2012 mayoral election to take all Superhighways to ‘Love London, Go Dutch’ standards of comfort and safety.“  More succinctly stated by a placard carried on the ride, written in blue paint: “Blue paint ain’t enough”.
