Ride of Silence- San Francisco 2013

Ride with us to honor those who have been injured or killed while cycling. Draw attention to the fact that cyclists are humans moving from one point to another and are vulnerable users of the road, and to help others remember that each of us deserves respect, whether cyclists, pedestrians, or motorists.

Please join us at Justin Herman Plaza on May 15, where we will gather beginning at 5:30, for a 6:30 departure. We will visit sites where we have lost our brothers and sisters, stopping at each in memorial. Wear white to be seen and to create a visual effect for the ride. We are the San Francisco contingent of the International Ride of Silence.
