Annual Ride of Silence


June 17th, 2024 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Location: Sydney Shopping Centre parking lot

Time: 6:30pm, Monday June 17th

On June 17th, join us for the 22nd anniversary of this world wide event to honour bicyclists who have been killed or injured by motorists while cycling on public roadways.

This will be a highly-visible, slow-paced, police-escorted ride through some of the busiest locations in Sydney. The goal of the Ride of Silence is to honour those who have been killed or injured by motorists, to raise awareness that cyclists are here, and to promote cycling safety by asking that we all share the road!

This police-escorted ride will begin by gathering in the parking lot of the Sydney Shopping Centre at 6:30 pm. This route is 10km and is appropriate for all skill levels. We ask that all cyclists wear properly fitted helmets, follow all traffic rules, and remain silent for the ride.

Although we ride in silence, we will not be quiet! This ride aims to raise the awareness of motorists, city officials, and the public that cyclists have a legal right to the public roadways. The ride is also a chance to show respect for and honour the lives of those who have been killed or injured by motorists. Please invite your friends, relatives, and local leaders to this important event!

For anyone interested, bring some money and enjoy a meal after the ride at Thai Express with some other members of Velo Cape Breton.
