2021 Ride Of Silence

Ride Of Silence

"Ride of Silence" is to honor accident victims and promote safe cycling

Each year, bicycle riders in the U.S. have been killed or injured while riding on public roadways. The Akron Bicycle Club invites all bicyclists to participate in a slow- paced bike ride in coordination with the  World Wide National Ride of Silence.
 
The Akron Bicycle Club (ABC) invites all bicyclists to participate in a slow- paced bike ride in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park on Wednesday, May 20, 2020 and in coordination with the World Wide National Ride of Silence (www.rideofsilence.org).  The Akron event will especially honor two of the club’s cyclists, Matt Billings and Jim Lambert, who were both killed in an automobile/bicycle crash in September of 2015.
 
As an international event, the Ride of Silence has taken place in various locations across the globe since 2003. The ride is intentionally solemn and slow paced, with cyclists going no faster than 12 mph and participating silently. In keeping with the importance of the occasion, other area cycling groups are also welcome to participate.
