Ride of SilenceMay 20, 2020


This year, the Ride of Silence will be honored by individual solo rides around the world! Due to the impacts of COVID-19, there are no group events being held. On May 20th at 7:00 PM (check your local ride for any special events or programs), we ask you to take a moment to remember those injured or killed on their bike. Then ride solo or with family members on a route of your choosing, to show our solidarity with the Ride of Silence. We are expecting cyclists across Ohio will again take to the road, joining our brothers and sisters globally in the 2020 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. In 2019, the RofS took place in 359 locations worldwide, in 47 states, in 20 countries on all 7 continents, with 16 events held in Ohio.

Please check your specific ride location for details as some locations may have special programming for the event. This page will be updated as ride details are confirmed.  If you're interested in organizing a RofS in your community, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
