Ride of Silence is Wednesday

The 10th annual Glenwood Springs Ride of Silence is slated for this Wednesday, May 16, beginning at Sayre Park.

The purpose of the ride is twofold. First, it is a way to honor or memorialize those who have been killed by a motorist while cycling. Second, it is a way to raise awareness of motorists’ legal obligation to share the road with cyclists.

This is a worldwide event, on the same day at the same time. There is no fee for this event.

Cyclists will begin gathering at Sayre Park at 6:30 p.m. and the ride will start at 7 p.m. The route will be a simple 9 mile, single file, silent ride through the streets of Glenwood Springs. No rider shall exceed the 12 mph speed limit. All participants are asked to wear a black armband to show support for the cause. Riders who have survived being hit by a motorist are asked to wear red armbands. Helmets are required to participate in this ride.
