Ride of Silence May 19

Kyle Nylander, an experienced group ride leader with the a local bicycle club, will lead a Ride of Silence on Wednesday May 19 at 7 pm from Mercer County Park marina.

At the same time, Heather Haggan will be offering a Ride of Silence from Van Horne Park behind Princeton Fitness, Skillman/Montgomery.

Part of a growing international event, the intention of the Ride of Silence is to promote bicycle safety and driver awareness of cyclists on the road.

The West Windsor ride length is 12 miles. Please arrive by 6:45 p.m. and bring water, spare tube, helmet, and wear some form of a black band on your arm such as a black ribbon, piece of clothing or wide black tape. There is no charge for this ride.

Join cyclists worldwide in a silent slow-paced ride (max. 12 mph/20 kph) in honor of those who have been injured or killed while cycling on public roadways.

Why Does Ride of Silence 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

More information at the Ride of Silence web site. Kyle can be reached at Advisor500@Gmail.com

Please note that while these rides aren’t sponsored by the WWBPA, we fully support their mission and objectives, and are helping to publicize them by encouraging everyone to join in.
