Cyclists wil take to the roads in a silent procession to honor cyclists who have been killed or injured. Although cyclists have the legal right to share the road with m...otorists, the motoring public often isn't aware of these rights, and sometimes not aware of cyclists themselves.
The Ride of Silence is a free ride that asks it's cyclists to ride no faster than 12 m.p.h. and remain silent during the ride. There are no sponsors and no registration fees. The ride, which is held during bike safety month, aims to raise the awareness of motorists, police, and city officials that cyclists have a legal right to the public roadways. The ride is also to show respect for those who have been injured and killed.
