Ride of Silence - May 19

Next Wednesday evening (coincidentally the middle of Boise Bike Week), the Ride of Silence will depart from Boise's Camel's Back Park at 7pm.

I hope to be there a little early, and encourage anyone else to join. More about the Boise ride, and a map, can be found HERE.

If you're not near Boise, check out the link below; similar rides are taking place in numerous communities across the Fruited Plain.

The Ride of Silence is "a silent, slow-paced ride in honor of those who have been injured or killed while cycling on public roadways." (And to raise awareness, and to remind all roadway users of the need to share the infrastructure.)

Thanks to Bob T for the heads-up on this event. And I'm sure Bob noticed and appreciated that "Black clothing is not encouraged."
