Preparations continue for the May 20, 2020, Ride of Silence. Join us.

We had another productive organizational meeting to plan the May 20, 2020, Ride of Silence. We need cycling and driver safety. We need to watch out for one another. We need to mend. All are welcome at the table, both for planning and participating at the May Ride.

The 2020 ride will take place along the Underline - the newly emerging park underneath the Miami Metrorail. The ride will start at Viscaya Village (the former Museum of Science location) and work its way down to the University of Miami Station. This is in Partnership with groups coming online (list in formation).

This is a local event of a worldwide movement designed to raise awareness of cycling deaths, injuries and remembering those no longer with us, killed while riding. I continued to be inspired by the affected families as well as the bike community leaders that I'm proud to call my friends. 
The Ride of Silence is a free ride that asks its cyclists to ride no faster than 12 mph, wear helmets, follow the rules of the road and remain silent during the ride. There are no sponsors and no registration fees. The ride, which is held during National Bike Month, aims to raise the awareness of motorists, police and city officials that cyclists have a legal right to the public roadways. The ride is also a chance to show respect for and honor the lives of those who have been killed or injured.
There will be many more meetings and many other people involved in this event. Please contact me if you would like to participate and/or be involved in the preparation for this event. This is an international event that is held annually on the third Wednesday of May.

Hold the date. Please consider joining in on the participating and the planning. There will be some exciting new developments for the 2020 ride.  

Please contact me at for more information on participating in the 2010 event.
