Notes: 2016 RIDE OF SILENCE



The Ride of Silence in Philadelphia is scheduled to take place Wednesday,May 18th 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. Seven bicyclists have been killed in the Delaware Valley in the last 8 months. The ride is being held in Philadelphia for the eleventh year in a row. It is expected to be held this year at over 300 U.S. locations and in over 15 countries. Last year we had about 250 participants and this year we are hoping to attract at least 500 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 travel to West Philadelphia via the Walnut St. Bridge. The ride will return to the front of the Art Museum over the Market Street Bridge.The duration of the ride is expected to be 1 hour. Helmets are required and bicycle lights are encouraged.
