Ride of Silence (Irvine) - Wednesday, May 16, 2012

Route: Flat 9.7 mile loop around Irvine; on-street bike lanes and off street bike way:

At 7 pm Local Time we will join other communities across the planet in having a unique ride which will bring increased awareness to the streets of our home towns - focusing on the numbers of cyclists who are killed and injured by motorists who do not safely share the road.

Riders will gather at 6 & assemble about 6:30 at Irvine's Civic Center at the flag poles in front of the Police Department then cue up for a 7 pm slow paced, single file, silent commemoration to the riders who are no longer with us, especially those who were disabled or killed on the road. Come over after work - there are facilities to change clothes for he ride. A pack of single file - silent riders - pacing out for almost 10 miles... we hope to share this hour with each other, and know thousands across the planet will also have marked the hour; but also raise awareness among the many local motorists who will be witnesses of our parade.

It will be a dusk ride, Sun set is at 7:53; so wear your reflective & HiVis day glow, & have plenty of reflectors & lights...
