11th Annual Ride of Silence Miami

11th Annual Ride of Silence MiamiWednesday, May 18, 6:45pm – Crandon Park Marina, 4000 Crandon Blvd, Key Biscayne

The 11th annual Ride Of Silence, Miami is scheduled for Wednesday, May 18th. It’s an international effort to focus attention on the deadly consequences of non-awareness of bicyclist’s rights on public roadways. Participants and onlookers are welcomed to bring signs with messages and wear shirts with messages for the public view and the media to report on. These are your roads and this is your ride. The “Ride of Silence” is a silent procession to honor friends and family members who have been killed or injured while cycling on our public roadways. Recent bicycle-motorist accidents in Miami-Dade County illustrate the need to remind motorists of the 2006 law that requires motorists to leave a 3 foot space when overtaking a bicycle. The ride of silence is a safe, silent way of reminding them of this need.
