Notes: RIDE OF SILENCE –

When: Wednesday, May 17, 2017 7:15 pm

Where: Hundreds of locations world wide (and Lynchburg's Boonsboro Kroger)

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.

WHY DOES THIS ORGANIZATION EXIST?

To HONOR those who have been injured or killed
To RAISE AWARENESS that we are here
To ask that we all SHARE THE ROAD

THE RIDE OF SILENCE WILL NOT BE QUIET

On May 17, 2017, at 7:15 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.

The Ride of Silence is a free ride that asks its cyclists to ride no faster than 12 mph and remain silent during the ride. There are no sponsors and no registration fees. 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 those who have been killed or injured.

For more info: http://www.rideofsilence.org/main.php

Additional parking available on surrounding neighborhood streets including Peakland Place. Please ride to the start location if possible to limit parking congestion.

Many will stay for dinner after the ride at Mi Patron Mexican Restaurant so you may want to bring a change of clothes and/or bike lock.

Please join area cyclists in this silent/reflective ride and celebrate your right to the road and Bike Month in Lynchburg!

RADFORD, VA - Join cyclists worldwide on May 17, 2017 in a silent, slow-paced ride in honor of those who have been hurt or killed while cycling on public roadways

We will have a police escort along the 7 mile route and will ride at a slow pace. Though solemn, the group ride is enjoyable and inspirational to riders of all ages, experience and ability (helmets are required).

Co-sponsored by the New River Valley Bicycle Association and Pathways for Radford, the New River Valley ride was first organized in 2008 after the untimely death of Fess Green, local professor and veteran cyclist. The ride usually attracts close to 100 riders.

Staging will begin in the Sal’s/El Charro (Central Lumber) parking lot at 709 W. Main Street, Radford, VA 24141 at 6:30 pm.

Schedule of events:
6:30 – staging begins
6:45 – welcome and instructions
6:59 – moment of noise
7:00 – Ride of Silence begins

If you cannot ride, we welcome your support for bike safety. Join us along the route on Main Street (from Sal’s and El Charro to the Dedmon Center). You can view the entire route at: https://ridewithgps.com/trips/4737276. Participants are invited to gather at Sal’s and El Charro following the ride. Please share this with friends and families!
