Harry Sievey was taken far too soon, on the evening of Sunday 12th February 2017, aged just 24. He had been cycling on Mauldeth Road West in Withington, Manchester, and was pronounced dead at the scene, having been involved in a collision with a car whose driver was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.
A vigil will be held on Monday 20th February and a ghost bike will be installed in his memory. People are invited to assemble by Withington Library from 6:00pm for a 6:15pm start. We expect the event to conclude by 7pm.
We welcome everyone – whether cyclist, pedestrian, motorist or a multimodal traveller – to join us at the vigil to remember Harry Sievey and make a stand for safer roads, investment in cycling facilities, and cleaner air.
We hope that through urgent action on safer roads and better provision for cycling, Harry Sievey’s ghost bike will the last one we have to install in the Manchester area.
