Dozens of local cyclists joined thousands around the world to honor those who have been killed or injured in bike accidents.

And they did it without saying a word.

The Ride of Silence is an international, simultaneous bike ride that happens every year on May 15.  Dressed in neon green T-shirts, local cyclists rode though Fox Point, silently raising awareness for safe biking.

Wheel and Sprocket organized the rides in the Milwaukee area.
