On May 18th, 2016 Join Cyclists Worldwide In A Silent, Slow-Paced Ride In Honor Of Those Who Have Been Injured Or Killed While Cycling On Public Roadways. It is also an opportunity to raise awareness of bicyclist’s rights to the road, to let motorists and the public know they must share the road with us.

**Please WEAR WHITE clothing in memory of those that have been injured or killed.** Helmets and lights are required.

With this ride, we hope to educate motorists that cyclists have the legal right to the road and to watch out for us. The Ride of Silence is similar to a funeral procession. Participants of all abilities are invited to join the procession. The ride starts at 7:00 pm at City Hall in Downtown Houston. Please wear a plain white shirt and arrive no later than 6:45 pm for ride protocol and safety instructions.
