About 100 bicyclists took part in the annual Ride of Silence Wednesday evening in Alexandria. The event is an international ride to remember the bicyclists killed or injured while riding on public roads. The local ride was started by Jake Capistrant from Jake's Bikes, along with Brad and Sue Dumm, who lost a son in a bicycle crash in the Twin Cities 10 years ago.

The group of riders took off from Big Ole Central Park for their silent five-mile ride.
