"It's kind of hard to not talk, but really we want our silence to speak volumes", organizer Nikki Northrop Davidson said. The ride's goal was to raise awareness about sharing the road.

So, to remember those victims, the pack of about 200 bikers pedaled to spots where local cyclists killed on the road either lived or worked.

Ride participants are required to wear a helmet, ride slow, remain silence and follow the rules of the road.

The ride is open to everyone.

30 MI communities participated in the ride this evening.

Bicyclists from around OH will ride today in downtown Columbus to honor riders who have been killed in crashes.
