Austin cyclists remember those who've died pursuing hobby

On Wednesday night, many cyclists will gather to remember Gay Simmons-Posey, the woman killed by in a hit and run crash on Capital of Texas Highway last month.

The ride of silence remember cyclists who have been killed or injured in wrecks with cars and helps raise community awareness about a cyclist's right to use public roadways.

"The Ride of Silence started about three of four years ago in Dallas, Texas," Texas Bicycle Coalition Executive Director Robin Stullings said. "It's spread to over 250 cities internationally. In Texas there are 16 rides of silence including Austin, Texas."

The eight mile ride will start at seven o'clock Wednesday night on the Pfluger Bridge.
