A number of people around the Valley took part in a bike ride to honor those who have been injured or lost their lives while riding.
Wednesday was national Ride of Silence Day and bikers in a number of Valley cities including Waynesboro, Harrisonburg and Winchester showed their support by riding 12 miles in silence.
Jeremiah Bishop is a professional cyclist who was nearly killed when he was hit while biking four years ago. He says both awareness and support is important.
"Anybody who's been hit by a car or lost a friend who's been hit by a car, it really never leaves you. We just want to commemorate and have a quiet moment," says Bishop.
Wednesday's ride was hosted by Shenandoah Valley Bicycle Coalition. The riders wore either black bands in support of those who lost their lives or red ones in support of those who were injured while riding.
