Ghost Bike Memorial Ride held in Brooklyn

Cyclists killed on the streets of Brooklyn are being remembered tonight during an annual ride in their honor.

The "Ghost Bike" Memorial Ride is a bike tour to visit the places where cyclists have been killed in the city.

Sixteen monuments, or "ghost bikes," have been placed around the city this year to honor those killed - 98 ghost bikes have been placed around New York City since 2005.

Some people who plan to attend the event say it's not only important to remember those who died, but to send a message about driving cautiously.
