Newtown, CT -- They are biking from Newtown, CT, to Washington, D.C. to send a message.

Twenty-six cyclists are riding more than 400 miles in support of what they describe as "commonsense solutions" to prevent gun violence. There is one rider for each victim of the Newtown shooting.

Sen. Richard Blumenthal calls the ride a "rolling rally" against special interests, particularly the National Rifle Association.

The riders are expected to arrive at Capitol Hill Tuesday.

Blumenthal says the Judiciary Committee is expected to meet next week to evaluate changes to gun laws.
