Cyclists gather in Radford for Ride of Silence

Cyclists from the Goshen area will join riders from around the world Wednesday for the annual Ride of Silence.

In 2015, 818 cyclists were killed in motor vehicle traffic crashes in the United States, an increase from 729 in 2014, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. On Wednesday night, hundreds of people took part in the global event 'Ride of Silence'.

Event organizers said they hope the event reminds locals that cyclists have a legal right to share the road with motorists.

The Ride of Silence serves as a reminder for bikers and drivers out on the road to just be aware of your surroundings.
