People who have lost friends or family in recent bicycle crashes will reflect and remember their loved ones Wednesday evening at Roswell City Hall.

The event, organized by the bicycling community, is open to all vulnerable Georgia road commuters, including pedestrians. Attendees may sign up to offer individualized remembrances for crash victims.

An open forum will follow after the remembrance. People can suggest solutions and other ideas to reduce fatalities involving bicyclists and other vulnerable road users.

Comments presented during the forum will be recorded. All remarks are limited to two minutes in each category. Sign-in begins at 7 p.m.; the presentation begins at 7:15 p.m.
