    EVERYONE, please attend
    TODAY! May 17, RBC special Event from City Hall

    The mission of the worldwide Ride of Silence is to honor bicyclists killed by motorists, promote sharing the road, and provide awareness of bicycling safety.

    We will meet at Riverside City Hall 5/17/17 at 6:30, organize the group, and then start the Ride of Silence at 7pm in unity with riders all across the country, ride a 10 mile loop around Riverside with our procession and banners.
    We will be highly visibility. We will keep riders together.
    There will be no words spoken during the ride.
    Then we'll return to City Hall.

    The route will be mostly flat to draw persons who may not be hard-core cyclists, and haven’t been on a bike in years, but simply wish to honor a family member or friend they’ve lost.

    Local officials will know what we are doing and why. We don't want the public and motorists to perceive us, a bunch of bicyclists just blocking traffic. We ARE a funeral procession for
    cyclists and will be accorded the same rights as a motorized funeral procession.

    We will provide RIDE OF SILENCE paper signs to pin to your RBC jersey.
    If you cannot ride PLEASE VOLUNTEER to drive either a lead or sweep vehicle.

    Please Attend this Nation Wide Event to Honor those Cyclist we have Lost.
