Second Annual Richmond Ride of Silence
A somber, slow & quiet ride to honor those who have been seriously hurt or killed while bicycling in Richmond.The ride will traverse areas that the City of Richmond is planning to improve in order to be safer for cyclists.
Held during the week following Bike to Work Day during National Bike Month, the Ride of Silence aims to raise awareness in motorists, police and city officials that cyclists have a legal right to the public roadways.
Bicyclists are asked to travel no faster than 12 miles an hour, observe the rules of the road, and remain largely siilent. Helmets are required. Uniformed bicycle officers from the Richmond Police Department will be escorting the ride.
