Join us on May 15, 2019
On May 15th at 7:00 PM, cyclists across Ohio will again take to the road, joining our brothers and sisters globally in the 2019 Ride of Silence (RofS), a silent procession to honor and celebrate the lives of family and friends injured or killed while cycling on public roadways. Though cyclists have a legal right to the road, the motoring public often is not aware of this, nor in some cases aware of cyclists on the roadway.
The first RofS was organized in Dallas, TX in 2003 when a nationally ranked endurance cyclist was killed by a passing bus. With each passing year the RofS continues to grow. Last year the RofS took place in 386 locations worldwide, in 50 states (and D.C.), in 22 countries on all 7 continents, with 17 events held in Ohio.
The RofS is a FREE ride that asks cyclists to ride no faster than 12 mph and to remain silent. Rides are typically 7 to 12 miles long. The RofS, held during National Bike Safety month, aspires to raise awareness to motorists, public safety and city officials that cyclists have a legal right to public roadways.
