All are welcome to attend and participate.

WHY DOES THIS ORGANIZATION EXIST?

•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 WILL NOT BE QUIET

On May 15, 2019 at 7:00 PM, the Ride of Silence will traverse and unite the globe as nothing before it. 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.

In 2003,Chris Phelan organized the first Ride of Silence in Dallas after endurance cyclist Larry Schwartz was hit by the mirror of a passing bus and was killed. (Read the full history here…)

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 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.

After the ride, we will meet at Ride-A-Bike on Main Street.

GCC Members - I’m thrilled to start work as the new club Vice President helping Angel and the other officers.

During the last club meeting it was decided to form a Polar Bear Committee in order to start planning for next year. One of the first things we would like to do is collect feedback from the last Polar Bear ride. Please send a note to me with any thoughts on what went well and what did not as well as any improvement suggestions.

In addition, if you have an interest in volunteering on the committee please let Angel know. He is collecting names of volunteers for various club activities, depending on your interest.

Regards
Jennifer
