The Ride Of Silence is Wednesday, May 16. On one night in cities around the world, cyclists gather annually to ride in silence to raise awareness of cyclists' right to ride on the road and to honor the fallen cyclists no longer with us. It's a rally that advocates for the living friends and family of victims, as well as a celebration of those who incorporate the bicycle into their lifestyle. All events ride slowly (12 MPH) and silently in hope to end the tragedy on our roads.
If you’ve been previously, you know how great this is. If you’ve never been, this is the tenth year for the event. You owe it to yourself and road users to feel it for yourself. This is an inclusive event for all cyclists, young and old, fast and slow, serious or casual; teams, stores, clubs, couples, commuters, sport, mountain, fixies, and trikes. It’s for anyone who has ever ridden a bike, any bike, or wants to ride. Borrow or rent a bike. Bring a camera.
