Join cyclists who will ride in honor of two New York City youths who have perished while riding their bikes. Luis Ramos, 18, was killed on June 23rd while he was biking to work on Flushing Avenue near Beaver Street. Carolina Hernandez, 13, was killed August 17th by a turning truck while crossing the street on her bike at the corner of 57th Avenue and Junction Boulevard.

Bicycle deaths are preventable. Bring flowers, love, and hope.

    Hello,
    I’m writing on behalf of News 12 Brooklyn. I was wondering if I could get a contact number for this ride? When Luis Ramos was hit this past June we had the story on our newscast and so we were hoping to also cover the memorial ride. Will the ride promptly begin at 2pm or will there be an event held near the Williamsburg bridge? We want to make sure we cover everything. Any information you can provide would be wonderful.
    Thank you.
