Suburban Assault

Ride Of Silence – Today

with one comment

From their site:

DATE: May 19, 2010 – TODAY

TIME: 7:00 pm
WHERE: Hundreds of locations world wide

Join cyclists worldwide in a silent slow-paced ride (max. 12 mph/20 kph) in honor of those who have been injured or killed while cycling on public roadways.

WHY DOES THIS ORGANIZATION EXIST?
• To HONOR those who have been injured or killed
• To RAISE AWARENESS that we are here
• To ask that we all SHARE THE ROAD

THE RIDE OF SILENCE WILL NOT BE QUIET
On May 19, 2010, at 7:00 PM, the Ride of Silence will begin in North America and roll across the globe. Cyclists will take to the roads in a silent procession to honor cyclists who have been killed or injured while cycling on public roadways. Although cyclists have a legal right to share the road with motorists, the motoring public often isn’t aware of these rights, and sometimes not aware of the cyclists themselves.

LOCAL RIDE INFORMATION:

DALLAS:
White Rock Lake (the west side at the Branchfield-Fisher parking lot. Approximately 3800 W. Lawther Road.) MAP

ARLINGTON:
River Legacy Park (701 NW Green Oaks Blvd, Arlington, TX) MAP

  1. I’d really encourage your readers to participate in this. People are killed be crazy automobile drivers every year. I’ve been close a few times myself. Road safety awareness for bicyclists is super important and I thank you for write about this! Don’t forget, 7pm, ride silent! 12MPH!
