"Ride of Silence" to Remember Killed or Injured Cyclists | News
BUFFALO, NY - Members and supporters of the cycling community in Western New York held a Ride of Silence today to increase awareness about the need to safely share the road.
The Ride of Silence remembered those who have been hit by vehicles while walking, skateboarding, or riding their bicycles in the streets.
The ride began at Symphony Circle in Buffalo and continued down Porter Avenue to Prospect Park.
"This is an event to really draw attention to the fact that the roadways are shared by bicyclists, pedestrians, skateboarders and others," said participant Michael Cropp. "And we all have a responsibility when we're sharing the roadways to make it safer."
Over the past year, more than a dozen young people were killed or seriously injured while riding in the streets.
