For Whom Will You Be Riding on Wed?

Rain combined with threats of lightning, hail, and high winds prompted the postponement of tonight’s Ride of Silence in Montpelier.  (Kudos to the stalwart bicyclists who arrived hoping for a break in the weather!)  On Friday evening, the weather is predicted to be much more favorable so we’ll gather at 5:45 on the state house steps and depart at 6:00, wearing armbands with the names of those we are honoring.  If you can’t participate in the Ride of Silence, please feel free to send names of those bicyclists who have been injured or killed and we’ll ride for them.

If you are wondering about rain dates for Rides of Silence that were scheduled for other parts of the state, please feel free to contact the following ride leaders to inquire:

On Wed eve, May 16th, 2012, bring the name of someone you know who has been injured or killed while bicycling and ride in his or her honor.  By participating in the Ride of Silence, you’ll be taking a stand for the need for safer infrastructure for all roadway users in VT.  This year’s Ride of Silence is happening in 12 VT communities.  A good turnout in all 12 will demonstrate that bicyclists statewide are paying attention and want safer roads.

Below is a list of the towns and the ride leaders.  Please email the leader nearest you to find out where and when the ride is meeting or go to for the details.  Participants will ride approximately 12 miles, single file, in silence, at a respectful pace.  This is a ride to remember, not a race, and all are welcome.  Please give the name(s) you bring to the ride leader so the names can be read aloud when the group has assembled.  (If the weather is inclement, please contact the ride leader to find out if the ride will be held or if a rain date has been chosen.)  Thanks for fitting this important event into your schedules.
