The events listed below are in chronological order, May thru September.
The Ride of Silence
Each year, around the world, a ride is hosted to honor cyclists who have been injured or killed while riding on public roadways. Riders wear black armbands as supporters or red if they have been injured in a cycling/motorist accident. Participants ride in COMPLETE silence to honor our cycling friends.
