CHARLOTTE—The Plaza Midwood community came together to create a tribute for a cyclist who was hit and killed this week. It's called a "ghost bike."

Cyclists say it has two purposes - to honor the life of 73-year-old Al Gorman and to raise awareness about bike safety.  Gorman was riding his bike Sunday when he was struck by a car near the intersection of Parkwood and Hawthorne Lane. 

Many cyclists say something needs to be done about that stretch of Parkwood. One even called it a "death trap."

"We have to say that this is going to be the last one," said Jordan Moore with the Transportation Choices Alliance. "We have to set it as a goal that you should be able to ride your bike and walk safely in Charlotte, and we have to work together to figure out exactly what that looks like."

They urge cyclists and drivers to be more aware of their surroundings, always use caution, and learn how to share the road safely.
