|Notes:||Once again the Greater Lansing Ride of Silence event will be hosted by 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 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.
Our route this year will be different due to major construction on Michigan Ave. and Grand River Ave. near campus. This is our tentative route.
Stay tuned to this web site and our Facebook group for updates and more details as the date nears. Photos from last year can also be seen on our Facebook page.

|Notes:||This is a non-traditional Ride of Silence we have been doing since the ROS began! We include a ROS within our regular Wolverine Sports Club Eastside Wednesday Night Ride! With a 6:30 start, we stop at 7, make announcements and do our 10-12 mile slow paced ROS. We stop then for more announcements. Then we resume our club ride!|
