BELLEVUE, Neb. (KMTV) — Around 100 riders in Bellevue joined others across the world for the Ride of Silence, a tribute to cyclists injured or killed on the roads.

It also brings attention to the dangers cyclists face everyday.

On Wednesday, the riders started at the Twin Creek Trail and rode for 10 to 12 miles in silence.

Bellevue police and other law enforcement officers escorted them.

Mayor Rusty Hike and Sarpy County Commissioner Angela Burmeister were among the riders.

The Bellevue Bicycle Club organized it.
