HOUSTON -- Hundreds of bicyclists hit the streets of Montrose to remember Chelsea Norman, 24, who was hit and killed while bicycling home. The driver never stopped.

"Tonight our main goal is to remember Chelsea," said cyclist Dan Morgan. "It was a tragic accident, but this story gets played out over and over again."

The bikers gathered to raise awareness about Chelsea's tragedy and bring attention to the dangers cyclists face.

They met at Whole Foods in Montrose, where Chelsea was an employee, and biked up and down Waugh Drive.

"I guess it's time to stand up for something," said Kalvin Camp. "I love her and she's my friend, I don't want this to happen to any of my other friends."

Supporters also passed out flyers to motorists hoping someone will come forward with information that will help police find the driver.

"We are going to try to reach the people who don't watch television, don't read the newspaper and let them hear Chelsea's story," said Morgan. "Maybe someone will come forward with knowledge that'll help HPD."

The incident happened on December 3 and police still haven't identified the driver. They're asking asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at (713) 222-TIPS.
