Biking - Ride of Silence

Tonight was the annual Ride of Silence, an international event where cyclists gather and ride in memory of cyclists whose lives have been lost as a result of bicyclist/motorist traffic accidents. The local event was in Albany, and though the numbers seemed to fluctuate, about 50-75 riders showed up for the event. We rode as a group, escorted by police on bicycles, and passed three local ghost bikes, memorializing the fallen cyclists. Local media was there, and I'll update these links if anything more becomes available.
