Distance: 8.5 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 a location TBD will commence after our 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.

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.
