Special Announcement - Apr. 5, 2020
To the Ride of Silence organizers throughout the world,
We have not stood by and watched as this virus changes the world about us. With the date for the ride coming up, May 20, the board has decided to change the format for this year's ride. Instead of group rides we are recommending each site organizer encourage their participants to do solo rides or with their household members.
We are working on plans to allow participants to easily report these rides and link them together through an easy-to-use platform (more on that in the next email "blast"). Obviously, these rides should be held in accordance to rules and guidelines set by local and state authorities.
We want to keep the ride going on the same date it always has, the third Wednesday in May at 7 pm local, for 17 years. Thank you for sticking this out with us.
We're going to be OK.
7:00 PM - 8:15 PM
