Ride of Silence Returning to North Hollywood
For the second year in a row, LACBC will be hosting the Ride of Silence from the North Hollywood Metro Station on Wednesday, May 17th at 6:30 p.m.
The Ride of Silence has a global presence with over 400 rides worldwide and all 50 states represented.
Every ride is governed by the same practices: cyclists ride in solidarity without making a sound.
It’s a powerful experience that is shared not just between riders, but also makes a statement in the communities through which we ride.
Last year, the inaugural year for LACBC’s Ride of Silence, 100 cyclists took part with two television crews and the Daily News covering the ride.
For this year’s ride, we’re expect a larger turnout – so just a couple of quick reminders::
The Ride of Silence obeys all traffic laws. While the group may split at points, this also gives the opportunity for others to see what cyclists as traffic looks like.
While everyone is asked to remain quiet, please make use of hand signals and point out any hazards along the ride.
The route will cover seven miles. Please bring along front and rear lights as we’ll be riding at dusk.
Lastly, if you can’t make our event in the San Fernando Valley, there are other rides taking place across the Southland, including Pasadena and Oxnard, that you can join.
