"A slow, silent bike ride around downtown to honor and remember those killed or injured while biking. All are welcome and encouraged to ride with us to show solidarity for the community of bikers and walkers who have lost their lives and whose families are forever changed. This ride occurs internationally on the third Wednesday in May annually. 2019 will mark the 17th annual Ride of Silence.
After gathering for a few words in CCB Plaza, we'll head off in our ride together in a group, like a funeral procession of bikers. We'll ride approximately 5 miles, at a leisurely pace, in silence.
Helmets required; lights recommended.

We're still working on details like a gathering place for after the ride to socialize and share stories. If you are interested in helping out or becoming involved, contact Allison at email@example.com."
