Sandy Hook 'Team 26' rolling through Baltimore Monday

BALTIMORE - Cyclists spinning their wheels to raise awareness are expected to roll into Baltimore on Monday.

Riders took off from Newtown. Connecticut on Saturday. They'll stop in Baltimore before continuing on to Washington D.C.

Baltimore City Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake will greet 'Team 26' as they pass through Charm City.

This is the second annual Sandy Hook ride for Team 26.

They're riding in memory of the 26 lives lost in Newtown.

The cyclists hope to raise awareness for gun violence prevention.

"There are those among us who realize being patriotic is standing up for what's morally right, protecting our neighborhoods and our children," said Mark Barden, who lost a son in the Sandy Hook school shooting.

There is a gun control bill being worked on in the House. But in order for the latest draft to pass it has to be called on by the Speaker.
