|Notes:||This will be our 6th Annual Ride of Silence. We usually have over 100 riders on this flat 6 mile ride through Doylestown. People will begin gathering around 6:30 pm. We'll have remarks about safety and will depart the Central Bucks Parking lot at 7pm, escorted by Police and Emergency vehicles. There will be no stopping on our ride as police will be awaiting us and will shut down intersections as we ride through. It's short and the pace is slow enough to accommodate even the slowest riders. Hope you can join us. Please bring helmets.

|Notes:||2014 PHILADELPHIA RIDE OF SILENCE|
The Ride of Silence is scheduled to take place Wednesday, May 21st 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 ninth year in a row and in its 11th year since its inception. It is expected to be held this year at over 300 U.S. locations and in over 20 countries. Last year we had about 250 participants and this year we are hoping to attract at least 400 riders to the event.
The 8 mile long route will start 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 11 mile per hour 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 1.5 hours. Helmets are required and bicycle lights are encouraged.
