A silent, somber ride will be held Friday through Santa Rosa in memory of Ruben Hernandez, who died in a collision with a pickup on Tuesday, and the four other cyclists who have died in what has been a rash of incidents the past two months.

The ride, sponsored by the Sonoma County Bicycle Coalition, is at 5:30 p.m. on Mendocino Avenue from the Sonoma County Administration Center to Courthouse Square.

Hernandez, a Modesto resident, is <a href="http://www.recordnet.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20120803/A_NEWS/208030319">being remembered</a> by his students and teaching colleagues in Stockton as a dedicated teacher and father.
