Ride of Silence 2021 – Please Join Us

By JW Haupt

Ride of Silence 2021 – From Two Locations

The Club will be participating the Ride of Silence event this year.  We will be offering events in the North Wilmington and Glasgow-Bear areas.  

Ride of Silence events are organized events comprised of memorial rides across the world. These rides are meant

  • To HONOR those who have been injured or killed
  • To RAISE AWARENESS that we are here
  • To ask that we all SHARE THE ROAD

.
The Ride of Silence, 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. For more information about the Ride of Silence http://rideofsilence.org/main.php

Unfortunately health concerns forced Wilmington to deny the permit for our annual ROS event in the city, which prompted us to move it to the Glasgow-Bear and North Wilmington areas for 2021. 

Please see our Ride Calendar for details about the two events along with links to the appropriate online sign-up forms which must me completed to participate. 

Everyone is welcome to join as these rides are family friendly travelling at approximately 10 mph. 

All rides depart promptly at 7 pm in silent procession, but please arrive by 6:30 and be prepared by 6:45 to participate in the pre-ride memorial observance.  

We hope that you can join us to demonstrate to motorists that you have concerns for your personal safety and the safety of others.
