Detroit

Contact: Kelli Kavanaugh   <--Send email
Distance: 10 miles
Notes: On May 16, 2018 at 7:00pm, the Ride of Silence will begin in North America and roll across the globe.
We'll meet at Belle Isle, Shelter #8.

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

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.

Ride distance: approx. 10 miles. This is the largest Ride of Silence in Southeastern Michigan. The primary organizers and supporters of this event are Miller Canfield Cyclists and Wheelhouse Detroit.

This ride is sweeper-supported. We request that riders wear helmets and carry an extra tube. WE ASK THAT ALL RIDERS RESPECT THE INSTRUCTIONS OF THE MICHIGAN STATE POLICE (WHILE ON BELLE ISLE) AND THE VOLUNTEER SWEEPERS. THIS IS A QUIET, RESPECTFUL RIDE.

This event is free, but will require participants to sign a waiver.
