|Notes:||On May 18, 2016 at 7:00 PM, the Ride of Silence will traverse and unite the globe as nothing before it. 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 asks its cyclists to ride no faster than 12 mph, wear helmets, follow the rules of the road and remain silent during the ride. 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.
We will depart from Album Park and ride to the Ghost Bike on George Dieter placed in memory of Heinz Duerkop (approximately 3.5 miles)

Pre-ride registration and waiver signing starts at 5:00 p.m.

Mayor James Darling, City Commissioner Veronica Vela Whitacre, Fire Chief Ralph Balderas and Police Chief of Police, Victor Rodriguez are slated to speak as well as a survivor of a recent bicycle/auto accident.
The Run, Ride and Share Campaign was formed in April 2014. A Safety Awareness Committee was established to educate and raise awareness to all who share the road (cyclists, motorists, pedestrians and runners). In 2014, McAllen and surrounding cities were impacted by four tragic deaths involving cyclists which spurred community leaders to act. A group of runners, cyclists and motorists joined forces to educate everyone on the importance of sharing the road in the Rio Grande Valley.

This will be the 11th year that the Ride of Silence takes place in the Permian Basin. Please arrive by 6:45 so that we have enough time to distribute arm bands, ensure that our bikes are mechanically sound, get everyone lined up, etc. This will allow a prompt 7:00 ride off.
