Please join me in honoring those who have been killed or injured by a motorist while cycling. On May 21, 2014 at 7:00 PM, the Ride of Silence will begin in North America and roll across the globe. Cyclists will take to the roads in a silent procession to honor cyclists who have been killed or injured while cycling on public roadways. Although cyclists have a legal right to share the road with motorists, the motoring public often isn't aware of these rights, and sometimes not aware of the cyclists themselves.

Greetings from Northern Virginia! As a participant of the annual Ride of Silence event in the past, the Blue Suit Pacers Cycling team would like to extend you an invitation to this year's event scheduled for this coming Wednesday, 21 May, 6:30pm-8:00pm. The Ride will begin and end at the Maloof Skate Park parking lot across from the DC Armory near RFK Stadium (East Capitol St SE & 22st NE) and will complete an 8.3 mile loop up East Capitol, 3rd St NE, H St NE, down 14th St NE, up Pennsylvania Ave SE, up 3rd St SE, then east on East Capitol SE back to the Skate Park. Metro PD will provide escort service throughout the event and several local motorcycle clubs will pace us through the route--should be a grand event for everyone!
Look forward to you joining us on Wednesday!
