Cyclists to honor fallen comrades

From Staff ReportsMay 16, 2006 

— Cyclists, runners and others who share the road are invited to an 8-mile "Ride of Silence" beginning at 7 p.m. Wednesday at McDougle Middle School.

The purpose of the ride, one of 120 around the world, is to raise awareness among motorists, police and government officials, and to mourn, in funeral-procession style, those who have been killed, organizers said. Riders are asked to remain silent, ride no faster than 12 mph, and wear black arm bands, or red if they have had a bike-motor vehicle accident.
