Join cyclists worldwide in a silent slow-paced ride (max. 12 mph/20 kph) in honor of those who have been injured or killed while cycling on public roadways.
Read about the ROS history here.
The Ride of Silence started in 2003 at White Rock Lake in Dallas as 1,000 gathered to remember bicyclist Larry Schwartz, who was killed by a school bus mirror. Since then, the annual, slow-paced, sunset ride has grown to include events in all 50 states and 18 countries worldwide
- To HONOR bicyclists who have been injured or killed
- To RAISE AWARENESS that bicyclists are here
- To ask that we all SHARE THE ROAD
Thousands of riders are expected to gather this Wednesday in Dallas at a parking lot on W. Lawther Drive between Branchfield Drive and Fisher Road (view map). The White Rock Station on DART’s blue light rail line is about 2 miles away. For those who want to take the train or drive and then ride together, we’ll depart the DART parking lot at 6:30 p.m. sharp.
Wear a red arm band if you have survived a bike/motor vehicle accident; other riders are invited to wear black arm bands.
