Ride of Silence 2019
Time & Location
About The Event
The 2019 edition of the RIDE OF SILENCE will be held on Thursday May 16th (Note date changed due to weather). Members of Velo Cape Breton and the general public are invited to gather at 6:30pm at the Sydney Shopping Center 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.
Our ride will begin at 7:00pm sharp to coincide with other rides scheduled worldwide. This is a ride at a relaxed pace (12 to 15km per hour) on a designated 21km 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 last year are encouraged to bring a friend.
There are no registration fees, and pre-registration is NOT required.
Meet at the Sydney Shopping Center at 6:30pm on Thursday, May 16, 2019 for a ride start at 7:00pm. Your ride leader will be Vic Gouthro.
