The annual Ride of Silence in Sacramento attracted more than 100 riders on Wednesday to honor bicyclists killed by motorists in 2014, and to promote share-the-road bicycling safety. Friends of relatives who lost a loved one placed flowers at the “ghost bike" that sits at J and Carlson near Sacramento State University.
