Memorial ride for bicyclist killed in crash

LARGO (FOX 13) -

Hundreds of bicyclists held a memorial ride in honor of a friend killed in a crash this week.

Friends of Robert Lemon began the ride in Largo.

Lemon was hit and killed this week when a truck hit the tandem bike he was riding.

The woman riding with him, Hilary Michalak, is in critical condition.

The group of riders stopped at the crash site on the causeway for a moment of silence.

Frank Lopez, a bike shop owner, said, "we're gonna try to do this every year in remembrance of Robert Lemon. We'd like to turn this into bicycling awareness and let everyone know we'll miss Rob."

Christopher Weed has been arrested in connection with the crash.

He reportedly told police he doesn't remember hitting the bike.
