Ride of Silence
The 2019 edition of the Ride of Silence will be held on Wednesday, 15 May 2019. Members of Velo Cape Breton and the general public are invited to gather at 6:30 PM at the Sydney Shopping Centre (Prince Street, Sydney) parking lot to participate in this memorial bike ride. Similar events are scheduled around the world to ride in silence to raise awareness of cyclists' right to ride on public streets and highways and to remember and honor cyclists who have been killed or seriously injured while sharing the roadways with motorists.
The ride will begin at 7:00 PM sharp to coincide with other rides scheduled worldwide. This is a ride at a relaxed pace (12 to 15 km/h) on a designated 21 km route throughout city streets accompanied by a police escort. Individuals of all riding abilities are invited to participate...avid cyclists, those who commute by bike, families who enjoy cycling as a family activity...anyone on two wheels. All those who attended in previous years are encouraged to join in again and bring a friend.
There is no cost to participate in this ride.
