HUDSON, Ohio — Cyclists from across Northeast Ohio rode to remember fallen soldiers Sunday, and at the end of the road was a beautiful tribute.
The Pedal for Heroes Remembrance Ride kicked off Sunday afternoon in Hudson.
Cyclists rode one minute on a stationary bike for each of the fallen soldiers from Ohio since 9/11.
This year, they rode for 274 minutes.
After the ride, local Iraq War veteran Zack Gillespie unveiled the memorial he created to honor those fallen soldiers who lost their lives in the Middle East.
“It’s overwhelming,” said Cassie Schumaker, co-founder of Pedal for Heroes. “It’s overwhelming to see the community support.”
Seven other locations across Northeast Ohio hosted remembrance rides as well.
