We ride in a procession to bring awareness to cycling as the season begins, and remind drivers to share the road. This is a FREE family friendly ride! Helmets and rear blinking lights are REQUIRED.
The Ride of Silence... Tonight we number many but ride as one In honor of those not with us, friends, mothers, fathers, sisters, sons With helmets on tight and heads down low, We ride in silence, cautious and slow The wheels start spinning in the lead pack But tonight we ride and no one attacks The dark sunglasses cover our tears Remembering those we held so dear Tonight's ride is to make others aware The road is there for all to share To those not with us or by our side, We honor you on your final ride
