traditional sense: there will be no banners or slogans.
it is a ride to remember and to think and not to be outwardly angry but instead to let our silence and our numbers have the required effect.
"The Ride Of Silence is a free ride that asks its cyclists to ride no
faster than 12 mph and remain silent during the ride. There is no
brochure, no sponsors, no registration fees and no t-shirt. The ride,
which is being held during Bike Safety month (U.S), aims to raise theawareness of motorists, police and city officials that cyclists have a legal right to the public roadways. The ride is also a chance to showrespect for those who have been killed or injured."
