Wheelhouse Detroit Bike Shop says
On May 20, 2015 at 7:00pm, the Ride of Silence will begin in North America and roll across the globe. We'll meet at Belle Isle's Shelter 8e. 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 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.

Ride distance: apx 10 miles. This is the largest Ride of Silence in Southeastern Michigan. The primary organizer and supporter of this event is Wheelhouse Detroit.
