The annual Ride of Silence is May 15th. This is a worldwide bike ride started in Dallas by Chris Phelan.  The ride, held during National Bike Month, aims to raise the awareness of motorists, police and city officials that cyclists have a legal right to the public roadways. The ride is also a chance to show respect for and honor the lives of those who have been killed or injured while cycling.

The ride starts at 7pm from the big parking lot between Fisher and Branchfield on West Lawther. The route goes clockwise around White Rock Lake at 10-12 mph with riders lined up in a 2×2 format.

The ride leaves the parking lot heading north on West Lawther, crosses the lake on Mockingbird bridge, re-enters the park staying on the road/path on the east side down to the spillway and around on the path to TP Hill, where riders will get back onto West Lawther and return to the starting point.

We will ride silently. Wear a red armband if you’ve been hit by a car, or remember any riders who have been hit in a way that is meaningful for you.
Bring blinking lights. Wear a helmet.
