Cyclists in Tucson hit the roads to remember riders who have died or been seriously injured by drivers while riding their bikes. 

Ride of Silence kicked off at Reid Park Wednesday night. 


Hundreds of Southern Arizona cyclists took part in the funeral like procession ride that underscores the implications of distracted driving. 

"It shows what a moment of distraction can do and a lifetime of regret," says executive Director, Brendan Lyons of LOOK! Save a life. 

The organization, LOOK! Save a Life teamed up with Greater Arizona Bicycling Association (GABA) to spread awareness. 

Family and friends gathered to remember their loved ones.
