Cyclists will take to Des Moines’ streets Wednesday to honor fellow cyclists who have been killed or injured on Iowa roadways.
It’s the Ride of Silence. The slow-paced ride starts at 6:30 p.m. at the State Historical Society Building at 600 East Locust. Cyclists will take three-mile ride through downtown.
Cedar Falls, Marshalltown, and Mason City are also holding rides Wednesday night.
Bike Iowa reports that three people have been injured so far this year after they were hit by vehicles. They say four people were killed while biking last year.
This is the 10th year Des Moines has participated in the Ride of Silence.
