Join cyclists worldwide in a silent, slow-paced ride in honor all vulnerable road users who have been killed or injured on public roadways: cyclists, runners, walkers, and motorcyclists.
This ride will happen in Radford. The event is family-friendly and children are encouraged to participate (helmets are required). We will have a police escort along the 7 mile route and will ride at a slow pace. Though solemn, the group ride is enjoyable and inspirational to even the youngest riders.
Co-sponsored by the New River Valley Bicycle Association and Pathways for Radford, the New River Valley ride was first organized in 2008 after the untimely death of Fess Green, RU Professor and veteran cyclist.
Staging will begin in the Sal’s / El Charro (Central Lumber) parking lot at 709 W Main Street, Radford, VA, 24141 at 6:30pm
Schedule of events:
6:30 – staging begins
6:45 – speakers and instructions
6:59 – moment of noise
7:00 – Ride of Silence begins
If you cannot ride, we welcome your support for bike safety. Join us along the route on Main Street (from Sal’s and El Charro to the Dedmon Center). Participants are invited to gather at Sal’s and El Charro following the ride.
