SHELTON, Conn. -- A white "ghost bike" has been set up near the site where 55-year-old Brian "Buzz" Climis was killed in a cycling crash on Dec. 23 on Bridgeport Avenue in Shelton, according to the Shelton Herald.

The white bikes, which have been set up as roadside memorials across the country where cyclists have been killed or severely injured, are also meant to remind drivers to share the road, said the Shelton Herald.

A group of the Climis' friends and family members decided to place the bike in his honor of the devoted master bicycle mechanic and champion rider, the story said.

The investigation into the accident that killed Climis, who rode as many as 15,000 to 20,000 miles a year, is still under investigation, reported the Shelton Herald.
