Bike Ride to Honor Memory of Cyclists

By  | 

LAREDO, Texas (KGNS) - A group of cyclists are coming together to raise awareness on the dangers many face out in the road.

From exercise to patrolling the streets, many opt to use bicycles as a medium of transportation. This is why the City of Laredo is participating in it's second annual Ride of Silence event.

The eight-mile bicycle ride honors the memory of those cyclists who have been injured or killed out on the road. It also raises awareness that cyclists have a legal right to ride on the road.

"We're asking the community to participate," says Sonia Cadena, of the Laredo Cycling Association. "It's a free community event. We are not only trying to bring bike awareness to the cyclists, but to the motor vehicles."

The event will take place May 17 at 7:00 pm. The public is invited to bring their bikes and gear to the Laredo Civic Center.
