Marin County - Larkspur

Contact: Stephen Bingham   <--Send email
Distance: 5-6 mi.
Notes: ANNUAL RIDE OF SILENCE MAY 21 WILL REMEMBER MARIN CYCLISTS KILLED OR INJURED

A COVID-safe in-person Ride of Silence will take place Saturday, May 21, at 10:30 a.m., cycling from Piper Park in Larkspur to downtown San Anselmo and back. In the event that the Marin Health Dept. changes its Covid-related protocols before the ride, email ride organizer Steve Bingham for ride adjustments.

The ride will stop briefly in downtown San Anselmo for a short ceremony, to include the reading of the names of cyclists known to have been killed or severely injured on Marin County roads. The group will then hand out flyers to those in the area, calling on Marin County and its towns to adopt Vision Zero strategies. This far, no VZ plan exists in Marin. After returning to Piper Park, there will be an informal BYO picnic, weather permitting.

We will remember these cyclists killed on Marin roads:

Unknown, Inverness Park, December, 1969
Kathy Crimm, age 52 (12/6/1998)
Cecilia Krone, age 42 (9/4/1999)
Kirk Ross, age 42 (12/31/1999
Frank Merino, age 42 (10/05/02)
Michael Goldstein (7/4/2003)
Hailey Ratliff, age 12 (9/27/2012)
David Hauer, age 7 (4/12/2013)
Debra DiBenedetto,(10/29/18)Woodacre, 2d Grade Teacher
David Dunne, age 74 (2/7/20) Fairfax, electric scooter rider
Greg Chisholm, age 58 (1/29/22) White Hill on SFD Blvd., struck from behind while riding on shoulder

The ride will also remember Sylvia Bingham, daughter of Ride organizers Steve Bingham and Francoise Blusseau. Sylvia, a 2005 graduate of Terra Linda High School in San Rafael, was killed cycling to work in Cleveland in 2009.

The 2022 worldwide Rides of Silence http://www.rideofsilence.org/main.php are silent rides to honor cyclists killed or injured while cycling on public roadways. Although cyclists have a legal right to share the road with motorists, motorists often are not aware of these rights and sometimes not aware of the presence of the cyclists themselves.
The biggest single reason people don’t ride is their fear of a crash. A county-by-county study of crashes in California from 2012 to 2016 found that Marin had the second highest collision rate involving bicycles.

The Ride of Silence is both a remembrance and a call to drivers and policy makers to do more to make cycling safe. The Marin Ride of Silence supports Vision Zero https://visionzeronetwork.org/ which is not yet official policy anywhere in Marin County.

Notes: 2022 Ride of Silence - San Francisco Thursday, May 19, 2022

"20 YEARS OF REMEMBRANCE"

San Francisco's annual Ride of Silence is a solemn group ride to honor those injured or killed while biking. This ride continues to reach a global scale that now takes place in over 20 countries in May, with thousands of people riding their bikes to remember, support each other, and heal collectively. This year marks 20 years of the Ride of Silence.

This ride is a no-drop yet silent group ride that is appropriate for all ages and abilities. During the ride, we will stop to lay flowers and observe a moment of silence at the sites of recent biking fatalities and honor those we have lost while spreading the message that people who bike represent precious lives. Also, we will be making a stop at South Park to honor the lives of those we lost in our bike messenger community. We will listen to some reflections from family members and friends of those we lost at some of the stops and we will be doing a live ghost bike installation at San Francisco City Hall.

Our theme: "20 Years of Remembrance". We are all deeply affected when we lose someone in our community, and together, we will ride, remember, and reflect.

Meet up will be at In Chan Kaajal Park on 17th Street (between Shotwell and Folsom).

6:00 PM: Meet-up
6:45 PM: Roll-out
