Ride of Silence RTP

Cyclists at hundreds of locations worldwide will gather this evening for the Ride of Silence -- a silent, slow paced ride to honor bicyclists who have been injured or killed while on the road.

The Durham ride will consist of a 6 mile loop in RTP, beginning and ending at the Triangle Life Science building (86 T.W. Alexander Drive). The group will be gathering at 7pm tonight (5/19) -- bring your bike, your helmet, and arrive early. No registration or fees are involved.

The group will be escorted by Durham PD reserve officers, keeping a pace of under 12mph to allow riders of all skill levels to participate. Here's a video from last year's event:
