In just a few short weeks, the Ride of Silence will take place. Last year about 200 riders took to the roads in Birmingham’s southside and rode about ten miles. Not a word was spoken. It’s in honor of all those that were injured or killed on bicycles within the last year. A list of names is read out before the ride begins. It’s all escorted by local police throughout the whole ride. A small fee is collected to help with the expenses plus a nice bbq plate is served at the end of the ride. I’m not sure if this is available in your town but if it is I would encourage you to participate if you can.
“Life Goes On!”
