    Ride of Silence 2017

    6:30 PM-8:00 PM
    05/17/2017
    9000 Ming Avenue, Bakersfield, CA, United States
    9000 Ming Avenue, Bakersfield, CA, United States

    On May 17, 2017 at 7:00 PM, the Ride of Silence will traverse and unite the globe as nothing before it. Cyclists will take to the roads in a silent procession to honor cyclists who have been killed or injured while cycling on public roadways. Although cyclists have a legal right to share the road with motorists, the motoring public often isn’t aware of these rights, and sometimes not aware of the cyclists themselves.

    The Ride of Silence is a free ride that asks its cyclists to ride no faster than 12 mph, wear helmets, follow the rules of the road and remain silent during the ride. There are no national sponsors and no registration fees. The ride, which is held during National Bike Month, aims to raise the awareness of motorists, police and city officials that cyclists have a legal right to the public roadways. The ride is also a chance to show respect for and honor the lives of those who have been killed or injured.

    We will meet at The Marketplace by the fountain in front of the movie theater. Please arrive at 6:30pm for the pre-ride ceremonies and the ride will depart promptly at 7:00pm. The ride is about 8 miles long and will hold a 10-12mph pace.
