Marin County - Tiburon

Contact: Steve Bingham   <--Send email
Distance: 7-8 miles
Notes: On Saturday, May 23, 2015 at 5:00 PM, the Ride of Silence in Tiburon will follow hundreds of rides throughout North America and across the globe. Unlike past years, the Marin ride will NOT occur on the official ROS day of May 20, as we have been unable to interest more than a handful of cyclists to turn out on a week night.

Cyclists will take to the roads in a silent procession to honor other 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.

This yearís Marin Ride of Silence will continue the three-year tradition of riding around the Tiburon peninsula, leaving from the parking lot of Blackieís Pasture at 5:30 p.m. Google Maps has directions to Blackieís Pasture.

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, 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. Participants will wear black and red armbands.

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 we know about who were 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)
David Hauer, age 79 (4/12/2013)

We would like to know the names of anyone missing from this list so that our ride can remember them as well. The Ride is also to remember participantsí family or friends killed or injured while cycling anywhere. Email names to smbingham@earthlink.net.
