NEWTOWN, Conn. (March 9, 2013)--Twenty-six cyclists are riding more than 400 miles from Newtown, Conn., to Washington, D.C., in support of what they describe as "commonsense solutions" to prevent gun violence.
There is one rider for each victim of the Newtown school shooting.
Sen. Richard Blumenthal calls the ride a "rolling rally" against special interests, particularly the National Rifle Association.
The riders are expected to arrive Tuesday at Capitol Hill.
Blumenthal said the Judiciary Committee is expected to meet next week to evaluate changes to gun laws.
