LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

If you were out and about in Lubbock on Wednesday evening, you might have noticed more than 100 bicyclists out on the roads.

It was all part of the West Texas Cycling Association's event called the "Ride of Silence."

The ten-mile ride honors area cyclists who have been killed or injured in traffic accidents during the past year.

Jill Booker is the president of the West Texas Cycling Association.

She says the event also reminds drivers to slow down and watch for cyclists.

"Be aware that we're out there. We don't mean to impede traffic, we're just out there trying to get some fitness and have some fun," she said.

The cyclists rode from 19th and Indiana to 82nd Street and back.
