|Notes:||This year, the 10th anniversary, 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. |
New this year attendees will 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.

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.|

On May 15, 2013, 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.
