|Notes:||2017 RIDE OF SILENCE|
The 2017 Ride of Silence is scheduled to take place Wednesday, May 17th at 6:45 P.M. The purposes of this silent ride are to honor cyclists killed/injured in motor vehicle related accidents and to raise awareness about the rights of cyclists to ride the roads. The ride is being held in Philadelphia for the twelth year in a row and in its 14th year since its inception. It is expected to be held this year at over 300 U.S. locations and in over 15 countries. Last year we had about 300 participants and this year we are hoping to attract at least 500 riders to the event.
The 8 mile long route will start (rain or shine) at the foot of the front steps of the Philadelphia Art Museum on the Ben Franklin Parkway. A brief pre-ride dedication ceremony will take place at 6:45 PM and the 10 mile per hour, family friendly ride will start promptly at 7:00 P.M. It will proceed down the Parkway, circle City Hall, continue to Independence Hall and head over to West Philly via the Walnut St. Bridge. The ride will return to the front of the Art Museum over the Spring Garden Street Bridge. The duration of the ride is expected to be 1 hour. Helmets are required and bicycle lights are encouraged.
