In honor of those who have been injured or killed while cycling on public roadways, cyclists from all around Houston gathered at City Hall for a Ride of Silence. Events like this are important for remembering those who have been killed, as well as to build awareness in the community. Even the Houston Police Department is upping its game, setting up regular stings
to catch drivers who endanger cyclists.
The crowd at City Hall on May 17 was addressed by Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg as well as other officials and key figures in the cycling community. HPD then escorted the funeral-like procession of riders (most of whom were wearing white shirts) through the city. All photos by Doogie Roux.
