'Solidarity ride' honors 3 cyclists killed this year in Philadelphia

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- A bike ride through Philadelphia's Fairmount Park honored several cyclists that were recently killed while biking in the city.

Sunday's "solidarity ride" was organized by the family of Will Lindsay, one of three men kill in the past month.

"Action is needed now to make these and other roads safe with better designs such as parked car protected bike lanes, and new technology such as speed cameras and radar," writes the group on its website.
