The third annual Ride of Silence to honor cyclists killed or injured while cycling on public roadways was conducted May 15 in Seymour.
Fifty-six bicyclists, including 10 from Columbus, took to the roads in a slow, silent procession, according to a news release from ride organizer Matt Nicholson.
The Ride of Silence is a free ride that asks its cyclists to ride no faster than 12 miles per hour and remain silent during the ride. The Ride, which is conducted during National Bike Safety Month and Week, aims to raise the awareness that cyclists have a legal right to the public roadways.
