‘Ride of Silence’ commemorates cyclists – and all those killed in Richmond

About 40 people took part in the 5th annual Ride of Silence in Richmond last month, part of a national bike ride to bring attention to cyclists maimed or killed while riding on urban streets. But in Richmond, the ride took on a bigger meaning, commemorating all those who had been killed in the city. “It started out for road safety for cyclists. Nationally, it doesn’t concentrate on pedestrians, violence and murders. But I feel like everything is connected, so I wanted to address all of these things together in this ride.” See photos and the story on Richmond Pulse.
