Hundreds of Ashley Block’s friends and other members of the local cycling community gathered Monday for a group ride one week after Block, a 25-year-old UGA graduate research assistant and triathlete from Minneapolis, was killed by an allegedly impaired and distracted driver on Athena Drive.
“It was an amazing turnout and symbol of love and support for Ashley and her family,” says photographer Matt Hardy, who documented the group ride from Five Points through campus to the spot where Block was hit. See more of Hardy’s photos below.
