Ride of Silence - May 21, 2014 - One day. One time. World wide.

Join the annual Ride of Silence, an organized annual cycling procession honoring those that have been injured or killed. The goal is to raise awareness that we are here, and to ask that we all share the road.

Save the date for the 2014 Chicago Ride Of Silence.

Our route in 2013 included 6 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.


DATE: May 21, 2014 (always the 3rd Wednesday of May)
TIME: Gather at 6:00 pm; Depart at 6:30pm
WHERE: Hundreds of locations world wide; Eternal Flame (Daley Plaza) in Chicago
One day. One Time. World wide.

In 2011 Chicagoland Ride of Silence locations included: Arlington Heights, Bartlett, Evanston, Joliet, and Peoria.

Wherever you ride, we ride in unity.

We spent this past Saturday at the Madison Bike Swap.

It was great to meet so many cyclists about the Ride of Silence cause.

Thank you for the warm reception, Wisconsin Riders.

Chicago ROS is once again selling calendars created using photos taken locally; proceeds from all calendar sales will benefit the Chicago Ride of Silence and promo for ROS as much as possible. For 2012, there are 3 calendars to choose from - ChicagoFlowers in Bloom, and (most notably for us bikey folk) Bikes Around Town. :-)
The calendars may be purchased via www.emaoriginals.com .... please pass along to others you know, too.

Thank you so much for your support and for helping to spread the word of this "fundraiser"!!! We will also be selling calendars at upcoming bike swaps -- including (hopefully) at this weekend's bike swap in Milwaukee.
