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.

A map will be posted. Folks will be at Daley until a little past 7 with maps, too.

Will a map be released ahead of time? (just concerned i may not get to Daley Plaza on time and might need to catch up late)

Hi Everyone... last minute need for a ghost bike to tow in procession with us tomorrow night. Anyone able to help?

This bike would represent all fallen riders who either do not have bikes and whose bikes are not part of our route.
