Bicyclists gathered Wednesday night to honor riders who have lost their lives on the streets of Sioux Falls.
Dozens took their bikes to the road for the annual Ride of Silence. It's one of many rides taking place around the world.
No one spoke during the trip; cyclists only used hand signals to get around. With the summer months approaching, the cyclists would like to remind everyone about bicycle safety and sharing the road.
“What we are trying to do is bring attention to the bicycle season opening up here. Lots of kids are out of school now and we are going to see a lot of more kids now on the road," said Bill Soeffing, who organized this year’s ride.
Red and black arm bands were worn on the ride. The red symbolized those who have been hit, and black represented those who have been killed.
