Ride of Silence™

Ride of Silence™


On the third Wednesday of May (May 16th), at 7 PM local around the world, cyclists will take to the roads in a silent protest of the carnage taking place on the streets.

Chris Phelan organized the first Ride of Silence in Dallas in 2003 after endurance cyclists Larry Schwartz was killed by a passing bus mirror on an empty road.

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.

The ride hopes to raise cycling awareness during bike safety month to motorists, police, and city officials. The ride is also a chance to mourn, in funeral procession style, those who have already been killed. The ride also requests black arm bands be worn, red if you have had a bike/motor vehicle accident. Arm bands will be provided.

WHERE: Harrisonburg High School Garbers Church Road.
Meet at 6:45pm for pre-ride instructions.


Waynesboro High School parking lot at 6:45 PM
