Ride of Silence

Wednesday, May 15

06:30 PM to 09:00 PM

Worldwide event, 17th anniversary. On May 15, 2019 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.

The Ride of Silence is a free ride that asks its cyclists to ride no faster than 12 mph, wear helmets, follow the rules of the road and remain silent during the ride.

Starting at Armstrong Park parking lot near the tennis courts. It will be about a 12 mile ride out to Creasey Ln. and Amelia Ln past the site of the December cycling fatality.
