Ride of Silence
May 16 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pmFREE
The Ride of Silence is a free group ride that asks cyclists to ride no faster than 12 mph for no longer than an hour. Riders remain silent during the ride to raise awareness of cycling among motorists, police, traffic engineers, insurance companies and city officials. The ride is also an opportunity to mourn, in funeral procession style, cyclists who have been killed. Bright clothing and lights are highly recommended for the ride home.
On May 16, 2018 at 7:00 pm, the Ride of Silence will traverse and unite the globe as nothing before it. Cyclists will take to the roads in a silent procession to honor cyclists who have been killed or injured while cycling on public roadways. Although cyclists have a legal right to share the road with motorists, the motoring public often isn’t aware of these rights, and sometimes not aware of the cyclists themselves.
