Hundreds of motorcycle riders turned out Friday, May 27, 2016, to honor the memory of 18-year-old Tyler Woelfersheim, who died in an accident a week earlier.
The ride started in Green Valley near the site of the May 19 crash, and passed by several places that had meaning in Tyler's life, including his neighborhood in Rancho Sahuarita.
Tyler died after a driver turned in front of him at Abrego Drive and Continental Road in Green Valley. He died shortly after midnight on May 20.
Estimates put the number of motorcycles at over 400, with 600 total riders.
