Ride of Silence
May 17 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
The purposes of this silent ride are to honor cyclists killed/injured in motor vehicle-related accidents and to raise awareness about the rights of cyclists to ride the roads. Seven cyclists have been killed in the Delaware Valley since our last Ride of Silence. The ride is being held in Philadelphia for the 19th year in a row and in its 21st year since its inception. It is expected to be held this year at over 200 U.S. locations and internationally in over 15 countries. Last year about 200 participants and this year we are hoping to attract at least 400 riders to the event.
The 7-mile-long route will start at the North side of the Philadelphia City Hall at the intersection of North Broad Street and JFK Blvd. A brief pre-ride dedication ceremony will take place at 6:45 PM and the 10-mile-per-hour ride will start promptly at 7:00 P.M. It will circle City Hall, continue to Independence Hall, through Center City, and head over to West Philly via the Walnut St. Bridge. The ride will then end in front of the Philadelphia Art Museum for the traditional bike lift in silence.
