E. Lansing - Lansing

Contact: Tim Potter   <--Send email
Distance: 8 mi.
Notes: The Greater Lansing Ride of Silence is proud to be hosting its 13th annual event. It will again be hosted by the TCBA Advocacy Committee & MSU Bikes joining 400+ events annually world-wide that honors and memorializes bicyclists hit and killed or injured by motor vehicles on roadways.

Attendees will once again gather at the Wells Hall courtyard (east side of Wells Hall) no later than 6:00 pm for important instructions and to sign-in, etc. Come earlier to be sure you've signed the waiver, tied on arm-bands (black, if you know someone who was hit and killed; red, if you or someone you know was hit and injured). Participants will then roll off at 6:30 pm sharp.

The start time is being bumped earlier again this year to ensure a safer return to campus in more light. Police escorts (bike patrol officers) will accompany the group through the route to help maintain safety and guide us through intersections along the route. This is our planned route.

An after party at the Lansing Brewing Co. (518 E Shiawassee St, Lansing, MI 48912) will commence at approx. 8 pm after our gathering at the State Capital to celebrate the lives of our fallen fellow cyclists and to support and encourage the TCBA Advocacy Committee and others in the area who are working towards safer streets for bicyclists.

HELMETS REQUIRED! (a limited supply of free helmets courtesy of Sparrow Hospital's Brain Trauma unit will be available) Lights and bright clothing highly recommended for ride home. We will ride in the rain, but our thunderstorm date is Saturday, May 23rd, 10 am at same starting point. The route and other details will also be the same.

Harbor Springs

Contact: Christopher Benson   <--Send email
Distance: 8 Miles
Notes: Ride of Silence-Harbor Springs 2020 - Your way!
You may have been wondering if the Ride of Silence-Harbor Springs would be happening this year?! The answer is YES! But it will definitely be different this year...big surprise. The worldwide ride is still planned for May 20, 2020 at 7:00 pm and since we aren't able to gather and ride as a group, I ask that you make your own RoS plan for that date,but you can choose your own time. Feel free to ride solo, with members of your family/household, or even ride "virtually" on a trainer. Supporters in Antarctica (at the Palmer Station) have been participating on their trainers for years...you can too!

When planning your ride, please consider a few simple RoS rules:

Ride in silence
Remember and honor those who've been hit & killed while riding or seriously injured
Ride slowly and a relatively short distance - this is not a race
Wear a helmet & obey road laws for bicyclists
For this year's ride, I ask you to do something extra: Take a selfie photo or 2 and use the hashtag #RideofSilence2020 and location of the event when posting your rides on social media. Posting to the central RoS Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/rideofsilence/ or the RoS-HS page: https://www.facebook.com/RideofSilenceHarborSprings/ - If you're not a big social media user, feel free to email your photos to me.

This will help the global organizers to get a good sense for how many people participated this year, & will be something the media may also use for researching their stories about our events around the world.

Looking forward to riding "with" all of you in two weeks! In the meantime, ride safe!
