Detroit

Contact: Kelli Kavanaugh   <--Send email
Distance: 10 miles
Notes: On May 17, 2017 at 7:00pm, the Ride of Silence will begin in North America and roll across the globe. We'll meet at Belle Isle's 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 as well as the volunteer sweepers. This event is free, but will require participants to sign a waiver.

Notes: The Greater Lansing Ride of Silence is proud to be hosting its 10th 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. 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.


HELMETS REQUIRED! Lights and bright clothing highly recommended for ride home. We will ride in the rain, but our thunderstorm date is Saturday, May 20th, 10 am at same starting point. The route and other details will also be the same.
