Tiburon (Marin County)

Contact: Stephen Bingham   <--Send email
Distance: 8 miles
Notes: The 7th annual Marin County Ride of Silence will once again go around the Tiburon peninsula. We will gather in the parking lot of Blackieís Pasture on Richardson's Bay at 10 a.m. , Saturday, May 21. (Google Maps has directions to Blackieís Pasture.) We are not holding the ride on the regular RoS day the previous Wednesday in hopes that more cyclists will participate than in previous years. After a brief ceremony, we will ride out at 10:30 a.m.

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. There are no sponsors and no registration fees. The ride is to show respect for and honor the lives of those who have been killed or injured. Participants will wear black and red armbands. The ride also aims to raise the awareness of motorists, police and city officials that cyclists have a legal right to safely share the public roadways.

In addition to remembering 22-year-old Sylvia Bingham, killed on her bike in Cleveland, OH on Sept. 15, 2009 and daughter of Ride organizers Steve Bingham and Francoise Blusseau, the Ride will remember those known to have been killed on Marinís roads and highways, including (with date of death): Billy Dougherty, (c. 1967); Kathy Crimm, age 52 (12/6/1998; Cecilia Krone, age 42 (9/4/1999, Kirk Ross, age 42 (12/31/1999); Frank Merino, age 42 (10/05/02); Michael Goldstein (7/4/2003);Hailey Ratliff, age 12 (9/27/2012)and David Hauer, age 79 (4/12/2013). Please send any additional names to the ride organizer so they can also be recognized by name.
