Cyclists in Santa Fe hit the road Saturday in honor of recent train crash victims.

According to The Santa Fe New Mexican, about 25 bicyclists gathered at the site where bicyclist Suzanna Lebeau was struck and killed by a Rail Runner train in April.

About two months after that crash, Joseph Salazar was riding his bike when he was killed by a train.

According to police, all lights, arms, horns and other safety equipment for both the Rail Runner and intersection were working properly.

Bicyclists on the memorial ride wore stickers that said "For Suzanne."

Many of Saturday's bicyclists say they hope to see physical changes to improve safety.
