"Pedro never got to finish his ride," said Mirones. "And I just had the idea that maybe we need to finish the ride for him."

Cyclists will ride down Bruce B. Downs Blvd., then turn on New Tampa Blvd. where they are expecting to stop and share a moment of prayer at the site where the incident occurred.
