•To HONOR those who have been injured or killed
•To RAISE AWARENESS that we are here
•To ask that we all SHARE THE ROAD
THE RIDE OF SILENCE WILL NOT BE QUIET
On May 20, 2015 at 7:00 PM, the Ride of Silence will begin in Huntsville, AL at Bicycles Etc (park in large parking lot on the corner of Cleveland Ave and Meridian Street). Cyclists will take to the roads in a silent procession to honor cyclists who have been killed or injured while cycling on public roadways. Although cyclists have a legal right to share the road with motorists, the motoring public often isn't aware of these rights, and sometimes not aware of the cyclists themselves.
-Please arrive early,so you are ready to ride by 7pm.
-Headlights/taillights on bikes and HELMETS are MANDATORY by RoS organization.
-Remain Silent at all times, use hand signals for turns, hazards in the road, etc. Only speak if it’s absolutely necessary. To quote our Washington DC organizer last year: “It was eerie riding along without talking. Cycling is such a social activity, so, to be with so many other cyclists and to not be talking was powerful.”
