The ride is free, no registration, no sponsors, no T-shirt, no prizes, no fees, no talking (hand signals will be used). This ride is a safe, responsible, professional, and mature response to the carnage on the roads we ride on.

Over 700 cyclists are killed each year while riding. Most of them occur in our cities, and suburbs. With this ride, we hope to educate motorists that cyclists have the legal right to the road and to watch out for us.

The Ride of Silence is similar to a funeral procession. The ride will be slow. There will be no talking, only silence, to remember our fallen brothers and sisters. Black armbands are worn in memory of those who have been killed; red armbands are worn for those injured while riding.
