Vigil and Ghost Bike installation in memory of Olivia Wojciechowska

Olivia Wojciechowska was just 18 years old when she was crushed by a left-turning articulated truck as she was cycling along Eccles Old Road on 1 September 2017. She died of her injuries the following day.

A vigil will be held on Friday 17th November and a ghost bike will be installed in her memory.

People are invited to assemble at the corner of Eccles Old Road and Lancaster Road at 6:45pm for a 7:00pm start.

People coming from central Manchester are welcome to join a feeder ride to the vigil. Please assemble at the Central Library from 6:00 for a prompt 6:15 departure.

We expect the event to conclude by 8:00pm.

We welcome everyone – whether cyclist, pedestrian, motorist or a multimodal traveller – to join us at the vigil to remember Olivia Wojciechowska and make a stand for investment in safer roads, safer junctions and safer trucks.
