Akron is holding three days of events this week to try to figure out what it will take to make the city more bike friendly.

About 100 people participated in the Akron Ride of Silence last night, one of hundreds of similar events happening around the world to honor cyclists killed on public roadways.

The sound of spokes was the only noise during the low-speed, 7-mile route that wound through the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.
