PASCAGOULA, MS (WLOX) -

Saturday night, cyclists will ride 5.5 miles in silence to honor the memory of Steve Chatters.

Chatters was killed on June 21 while he was riding his bike and suddenly struck by a vehicle.

“We hope that this ride will raise awareness of traffic and safety laws for motorists and cyclists alike. Steve’s death could have been prevented. He was not a statistic. He was our friend and participated in many of our rides. Organizing this ride is not just a way for us to honor his memory. It will deliver an important message about road safety, and will hopefully lead to more people being mindful of their surroundings,” said a Singing River Cyclist member and one of the Ride of Silence organizers.  

People will gather at Beach Park in Pascagoula at 4 p.m. on Saturday, July 25 to begin the ride. The route will start on Beach Boulevard, turn onto Market Street and end on Highway 90.

The ride is open to the public, but you need to provide your own bicycle and helmet.

The Pascagoula Police Department will escort the ride
