PRESS RELEASE

Press Conference Regarding Ghost Bikes Being Placed in Honor of Bikers Killed

Published Apr 18, 2022

The Southern Utah Bicycle Alliance, Washington City, The City of St. George, Bike Utah, MADD, Utah State Substance Abuse Administration, Washington County Health Department, Greater Zion, and the Coral Canyon HOA will hold a joint press conference on Friday April 22 at 1:30pm to announce the placement of ghost bikes at the scene of an accident where two bikers were hit and killed on April 9th in Washington City. The ghost bikes will be placed at the location of the incident until a more permanent memorial is installed at a later date. The placement of ghost bikes and an eventual memorial will bring greater awareness and highlight the need for motorists to share the road and not drive impaired. Our roads in southern Utah are busy with cyclists and other recreationists and it is imperative that we raise awareness to prevent tragedies like the one that has forever impacted the Bullard Family who lost Matthew Bullard (48) and Adam bullard (49) on April 9th to an impaired driver.                                        

The press conference will take place at approximately the corner of Telegraph street and Coral Canyon Blvd in Washington City on Friday April 22nd at 1:30pm. Media and community members and leaders are invited to attend.                                        

Attendees can park in the gravel parking lot at the Washington City Pump Station on the corner of Telegraph Street and Coral Canyon Blvd (enter the lot off of Coral Canyon Blvd).
