Thank you to everyone who showed up to ride on May 20, to all who offered support and to all who contributed in your own way (in thought, in donation, in spirit). The Ride of Silence embodies community and calls for the community to come together -- as it continues to do every year on the third Wednesday evening in May. This Ride is for the community. It is a memorial, a tribute, a legacy of those who have died while riding their bike on the roadways. We strive toward Vision Zero, that no loss of life on our roadways is acceptable. Chicago is still seeking support from its political leadership for its own comprehensive Vision Zero strategy.
Six of Chicago's bike patrol officers rode with us and kept us safe throughout our 10-mile procession; like a funeral procession these officers shepherded all in our cortege.
Thank you also to all who generously donated of their time and talents toward this year's Chicago Ride of Silence. We appreciate the generosity of the community and all who donated monetarily. A full list of our supporters is on this site.
If you would like to help with future events and with next year's Ride of Silence, please contact us and/or subscribe to our mailing list.
