Hopefully, you watched out for them and gave them space because those bikers were riding in silence during national bike safety month to remember bikers killed on the roads. Roger White, organizer of the ride taking place in Cedar Falls, says participants are asked to pedal the entire route without uttering word - unless it's to warn other cyclists about a potential hazard.

The Wonders family rides in memory of Garrett Wonders, who was on his bike practicing for a cycling team in SC when he was hit by a auto.

All of them - more than 90 - came together Wednesday night for Alexandria's ninth annual "Ride of Silence", an worldwide bicycle ride to remember the cyclists killed and to support those injured while riding on public roads. They pulled one ghost bike, a riderless bicycle painted completely white, in memory of Deniese McFall, a 25-year-old Mountain Home woman who was killed when an SUV crashed into the group she was riding with. They rode through Fresno and Clovis as a sign of solidarity for bicycle safety.

"When someone is hurt, injured, or even killed we stand beside eachother", said Millhollin.

First Ottawa Hills for a moment of silence, then to Toledo Hospital and other spots. "We ride tonight to reduce the close calls on the roads.Tonight is kind of special in many ways".

Bike riders travel slower than cars but they have every right to the road.

For motorists, give bikers three feet of space, pass safely and don't ride too close. The ride's goal was to raise awareness about sharing the road.
