TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A group of cyclists took off from Reid Park in silence.

It was all part of the annual Ride Of Silence. There were about 30 cyclists that went pedaling to honor friends and loved ones that have been injured or died from a road crash.

The message is about distracted driving and how dangerous it is.

Tucson News Now spoke with Karen Wilson, her son Dan Wilson died in a crash in September 2015. He was riding his bicycle near Orange Grove and La Cholla on his way to work.

A car was merging to the right and killed him, according to Wilson.  The pain is still there and she never thought she would lose her son at the age of 30, said Wilson.

She talks to groups about distracted driving and it helps her cope with the loss of her son. Wilson attends the ride of silence to keep the memory of her son alive.
