Every spring thousands of cyclists at hundreds of locations throughout the world participate in an annual "Ride of Silence" in honor of those who have been injured or killed while cycling on public roadways. The ride also seeks to raise awareness that cyclists have a legal right to the public roadways and to ask automobile drivers to share the road respectfully with one another.

Date: Wednesday, May 18, 2022 | 6:30 pm
Location: Choose your own route - This year's event will be an individual ride. 

*Start at 6:30pm, follow the rules of the road, helmet & flashers are required, ride speed is 8-12mph, and you must ride in a single file line.* 

"Tonight we number many but ride as one

In honor of those not with us, friends, mothers, fathers, sisters, sons

With helmets on tight and heads down low,

We ride in silence, cautious and slow

The wheels start spinning in the lead pack

But tonight we ride and no one attacks

The dark sunglasses cover our tears

Remembering those we held so dear

Tonight's ride is to make others aware

The road is there for all to share

To those not with us or by our side,

May God be your partner on your final ride."
