Cyclists honoured the victims of what they call Edmonton's bicycle-unfriendly streets in a "silent ride" Wednesday.

About two dozen riders took to the streets to pay their respects to cyclists killed by vehicles and to press for more bicycle lanes.

"We need to make the roads better and safer for them," said Michael Kalmanovitch who organized the ride.

"That means better infrastructure by the city," he said. "We also need to have better drivers paying attention.

The CBC's Laura Osman joined the group last night.
