We need your participation. Our web site and web master are waiting for you to register your ride so that others, including the media, can see the impact this ride is making.
Your ride does NOT have to have thousands of participants. Don’t put that pressure on yourself. It doesn’t even have to have hundreds, or tens. Three, four, or five riders together, memorializing past cyclists and hoping for future change, is all we’d like to see.
Sure, the more the better. But you and your friends riding in your town on May 20, at 7 PM, for a short, slow, and silent 8 mile ride constitutes a location we want to see listed on the web site.
WE NEED MORE LOCATIONS. And new ones, especially. Please come out and show your solidarity, your passion against cyclists getting killed.
The ride is world wide, on the same day, at the same time. The best part, it’s free. There is no other event that covers the earth like The Ride Of Silence (though Nike is trying to steal the idea).
Please. If you’re for active people, you want to show your colors this day.
Let the silence roar.
Chris Phelan, Founder
The Ride Of Silence
One day. One time. World wide.
