Ride of Silence To Take Place on May 20th

The annual Ride of Silence™ will take place on Wednesday, May 20th.  According to the Ride of Silence™ web site, “At 7 pm local time, the Ride of Silence™ will begin in North America and roll across the globe in having a unique ride which will bring increased awareness to the streets of our home towns – focusing on the numbers of cyclists who are killed and injured by motorists who do not safely share the road.

Riders will gather at 6:00 & assemble about 6:30 then cue up for a 7 pm slow paced, single file, silent commemoration to the riders who are no longer with us, especially those who were disabled or killed in traffic.

A pack of single file – silent riders – pacing out for 8 to 10 miles… we will share this hour with each other, and know that thousands across the planet will also have marked the hour in their own time zone; but also raise awareness among the many local motorists who will be witnesses of our sombre parade. It will be a dusk ride, Sun set is at just before 8; so wear your reflective & HiVis day glow, & have plenty of reflectors & lights… In case you didn’t know, California law changed and lights & reflectors are now required after dusk – even on bike ways and sidewalks.

Please wear an arm band; Black in solidarity – or Red if you have been injured by a motorist.”
