Memorial ride for slain cyclist Sunday

Bike Friendly Oak Cliff leads a silent memorial ride Sunday for the cyclist who was killed by an alleged drunk driver in July.

The ride starts at 6 p.m. at Kidd Springs Park, and lights are required. Kids are welcome, and they must be wearing helmets. Following the tradition of the Ride of Silence, riders will be asked to keep quiet as they make a loop around the neighborhood.

Joshua Alejos, 29, died on Tyler at West Davis after a car with its headlights off came speeding through the intersection. The 22-year-old driver was charged with intoxication manslaughter.
