BOERNE, Texas -- Hundreds of people came together to remember a San Antonio a husband and wife who were killed while riding a bicycle built for two.

About 300 cyclists wore black and bicycle-shaped pins Tuesday night in honor of Greg and Alex Bruehler. The unique tribute included a church service and a bike ride.

"They're just a caring couple with a wonderful daughter who, unfortunately, doesn't have a mom and daddy anymore," said family friend.

The couple's little girl, 7-year-old Kylie Bruehler, stood outside the church while the cyclists formed an honor guard.

The people who took part in the memorial ride said they are not only mourning the couple's loss, they are also trying to raise awareness about cycling safety on the roads.
