Contact: richard garrett   <--Send email
Distance: 7 mi.
Notes: Manasota (Bicycle) Ride of Silence
Wednesday, May 16th is the annual international (Bicycle) ‘Ride of Silence,’ and it will be observed locally by more than a hundred and fifty area bicycle club members and any others who wish to participate, with a seven-mile slow, silent bicycle ride through downtown Sarasota. The purpose of this ride is to honor all killed and injured bicyclists, and to make motorists more aware of bicyclists and of their right and need to travel along public roadways.

The riders will gather at Robarts Arena, 3000 Ringling Boulevard starting at 6:30 pm. And after an invocation and a bag-pipe playing, the riders will leave in groups at 7:00 pm behind clearly-marked and lighted vehicles that have signage to show the reason for the ride. They will then travel west along Main Street, then south along South Orange, and back to Main Street via South Osprey. All participants should have front and read flashing lights and they must wear helmets. Everyone is welcome!

Tampa

Contact: Drew Hunter   <--Send email
Distance: 11.5 mi.
Notes: 5/16/18: The Ride of Silence.

The Ride of Silence is a free ride that asks its cyclists to ride no faster than 10 mph, wear helmets, follow the rules of the road and remain silent during the ride. There are 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

BLACK ARMBANDS ENCOURAGED

Tampa Downtown Area

Distance: 11.5

Notes: The route will be a slight variance from the same as the one we used in previous years to overcome traffic construction areas: http://ridewithgps.com/routes/11616754 We hope to have the police escort again, but will try to keep the pace at and average below 10MPH.

It starts from Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park in downtown Tampa, to help send a strong message to local government officials that we demand safer streets for everyone. The route also passes the ghost bikes (Unfortunatley, all since removed) for LeRoy Collins Jr. and Diane Vega and the site where Peiter Vanvliet was killed on March 19, 2011.

We've had a few comments on police escort being overkill.

While we will have police escort the majortiy of the support is from the bicycle mounted officers helping us out. We will need to stop for stop signs, red lights and the like - in short, follow the rules of the road. We'd rather have those come out that feel they need that level of protection than not.

Not up to riding or want to support more?

While the ride is free, the RoS organization does still have costs, you can help defray those AND support the Ride of Silence -- even if you don't ride a bike. Very minor expenses here, but the national organization at http://www.rideofsilence.org/ does have needs and is a fully qualified charity.

NOTE: We've got to take weather into account in FL - The Ride of Silence will take place rain or shine, but not if there's a special light show going on. We will ride in a light rain, but not if thunderstorms are lurking. Our thunderstorm date is Saturday, May 19th, 10 AM at same starting point. Route and other details will also be the same.
