Kansas City Ride of Silence
May 16, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
The 12th annual Kansas City Ride of Silence (now in its sixteenth year internationally) begins in Brookside.
Join the worldwide bicycling community for this important ride: http://www.rideofsilence.org
We will ride in a slow, silent procession to honor cyclists who have been killed or injured while cycling on public roadways.
Cycling Kansas City (CyclingKC.org) is organizing this 12th annual Kansas City ride. Over 74 bicyclists have been killed in the Kansas City area. The Kansas City ride will honor those and other bicyclists.
Participants of all abilities are invited to join the procession. The ride will not exceed 12 mph. The names of those who lost their lives while riding their bicycles will be read during a brief ceremony followed by ride protocol, safety instructions, and the ride. The ride will start at 7:00 p.m., the same local start time around the world. The ride will return to Brookside around 8:00 p.m.
