On the north side of Lake Overholser, just east of the old Overholser Bridge, this ghost bike memorializes Chance Toles, a veteran cyclist who was killed nearing the end of a 100-mile charity bike ride. Apparently losing momentary control of his bike, he was struck by a motorist and died on August 10, 2013. These ghost bikes are a sad, sad sight along the roadways.
