(always the 3rd Wednesday of May):
On one night in cities around the world, cyclists gather annually to ride in silence to raise awareness of cyclists' right to ride on the road and to honor the fallen cyclists no longer with us. We ride in hope to end the tragedy on our roads. Chicago's Ride of Silence will ride in silent procession past several Chicago Ghost Bikes.
The 12-mile route is set to pass the sites of crash victims marked by Ghost Bikes, which are powerful memorials to fallen cyclists created by painting a bicycle white and placing it at or near the site of the cyclist’s death.
Gather at 6pm, Depart at 7pm
Eternal Flame in Daley Plaza
A post-ride gathering will be held at the small gym in the Hamlin Park Field House.
