Join cyclists worldwide in a silent slow-paced ride (max. 12 mph/20 kph) in honor of those who have been injured or killed while cycling on public roadways.
WHY DOES THIS ORGANIZATION EXIST?
THE RIDE OF SILENCE WILL NOT BE QUIET
On May 15, 2013, at 7:15 PM, the Ride of Silence will begin in North America and roll across the globe. 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.
The Ride of Silence is a free ride that asks its cyclists to ride no faster than 12 mph and remain silent during the ride. There are no sponsors and no registration fees. The ride, which is held during National Bike Month, aims to raise the awareness of motorists, police and city officials that cyclists have a legal right to the public roadways. The ride is also a chance to show respect for those who have been killed or injured.

Additional parking available on surrounding neighborhood streets including Peakland Place. Please ride to the start location if possible to limit parking congestion.
Please join area cyclists in this silent/reflective ride and celebrate your right to the road and Bike Month in Lynchburg!

This is a family-friendly event, and children are encouraged to participate. We will have a police escort along the 6.8-mile route and will ride at a slow pace. Helmets are required for all riders.
Co-sponsored by Pathways for Radford and the New River Valley Bicycle Association, the New River Valley ride was first organized in 2008 after the untimely death of Fess Green, RU professor, community activist and veteran cyclist. This year's event will follow the same route, traversing Radford's roads, Riverway, Bisset and Wildwood Parks.
Schedule of events:
6:30 - staging begins (armbands will be available)

Participants are invited to gather at Sal's and El Charro following the ride.
