GREEN COVE SPRINGS, Fla. - Team Navy Jax and the North Florida Bicycle Club held a memorial bike ride in honor of Lt. Cmdr. Jim Warmowski Sunday. 

Warmowski was killed in a crash on July 14, 2002 while training for the Kona Triathlon.

The driver was impaired by prescription drugs.

The memorial bike ride, One Road Campaign Memorial Ride, started at the memorial market on U.S. 17 and went 2.5 miles south from SR-16 towards Palatka.

The annual event honors the memory of Warmowski, and brings awareness to the importance of sharing the road.
