The purpose of the Ride of Silence is to honor and remember all cyclists who have been injured or
killed while riding on the public roadways, and to remind motorists of the vulnerability of the cyclists
with whom they share the roads. The first Ride of Silence occurred in 2003 in Dallas, and has since
spread across the globe.
Our 9 mile route through Davis will begin at Ken’s Bike & Ski store and end at the Bicycling Hall of
Fame, where riders will have the chance to share memories and stories. Assemble at 6:30 pm and roll out at 7:00 pm. Everyone is welcome to join the Ride, which will proceed in silence no faster than 12 mph. Helmets are mandatory and lights are recommended.
