The primary sponsor and supporter of this event is Wheelhouse Detroit.

East Lansing

Contact: Tim Potter   <--Send email
Distance: 9 mi.
Notes: Once again the Greater Lansing Ride of Silence event will again be hosted by the TCBA Advocacy Committee & MSU Bikes joining 300+ 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. 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 updated route.

An after party at The Avenue (2021 E Michigan Ave, Lansing, MI) will commence after the gathering at the State Capital (approx. 8 pm) 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. Enjoy special bike music by The Fabulous Heftones; donations will be encouraged and accepted for the Kids Repair Program this year.

Our Facebook event page is here. Please invite your friends!

Stay tuned to our web site and our Facebook group for updates and more details as the date nears.

Harbor Springs

Contact: Christopher Benson   <--Send email
Distance: 8 Miles
Notes: The 7th Annual 2014 Harbor Springs Ride of Silence will start and finish downtown at the city parking lot of the Harbormaster (250 E. Bay St.) adjacent to the municipal tennis courts. The Harbor Springs Ride of Silence is organized by Christopher Benson who survived being struck by a vehicle in 2007 while riding on an open road.

The ride is FREE and open to anyone with a bicycle and a helmet (*helmets required*). The ride course is approximately 8 miles in and around Harbor Springs. Riders are asked to arrive at the start by 6:30pm for sign in, pre-ride instructions and staging.

On May 21, 2014, at 7:00 PM, the Ride of Silence will begin in North America and roll across the globe. 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.

Join cyclists worldwide in a silent slow-paced ride (max. 12 mph/20 kph) in honor of those who have been injured or killed while cycling on public roadways.

Please contact the organizer with any questions or if you wish to volunteer.
