Ride of Silence

The Ride of Silence is a world wide free ride in honor of those who have been injured or killed while cycling on public roadways. On May 18, 2016 at 7:00 PM the Ride of Silence will begin in North America and roll across the globe. Cyclists will ride no faster than 12 mph, wear helmets, follow the rules of the road and remain silent during the ride. There will be a volunteer police escort. There are no sponsors and no registration fees. Free Charles River Wheelmen sponsored tee shirts will be handed out on a first-come basis.

The ride, which is held during National Bike 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 a chance to show respect for and honor the lives of those who have been killed or injured.
