HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) - Bicyclists are pedaling in silence in six Maryland communities as a way of remembering riders who were killed or injured on public roads.

The so-called Rides of Silence are scheduled Wednesday evening in Annapolis, Baltimore, Frederick, Hagerstown, Olney and Rockville.

Coordinator Emily Ranson says they’ll follow routes of 10 to 12 miles at speeds of about 10 mph.

The Maryland Department of Transportation says bicycle fatalities in the state doubled from five in 2014 to ten in 2015.
