Ride of Silence this Wednesday May 15th

If your city participates in the Ride of Silence, it's coming up this Wednesday. Here's a website that lists participating cities:https://www.rideofsilence.org/locations-domestic.php

The Ride of Silence is an annual international bicycle ride to commemorate cyclists killed and support those injured while riding on public roads. It helps to raise awareness among motorists, the public and decision makers of the dangers cyclists face on the roads, especially from other traffic.

The first Ride of Silence was organized by Chris Phelan and held in
Dallas, Texas in 2003. Many participants found the experience to be very moving.[1] Although it was conceived as a one-time event, it has been repeated every year since then. Cyclists in cities around the globe have joined this movement. It has grown each year, with around 400 locations participating, most in the United States, but typically on all seven continents, including Antarctica. In 2013, the tenth anniversary, Ride of Silence events were held in 26 countries.

The Ride of Silence is held on the evening of the third Wednesday in May. The League of American Bicyclists promotes this event side-by-side with the national Bike Month and Bike-to-Work Day, held on the third Friday in May.

I just cleaned up the thread. One post came across as insensitive and the following referred to it. Let’s keep the thread the way the OP intended.

No ride listed for my state this year. The past 8-9 years the Seattle area has not had any ROS. Well, at least not reported to this website. Other cities, Spokane, Wenatchee, and Vancouver have had rides.
