Ride of Silence 2018
Ride of Silence 2018 Wednesday, May 16 at 7 PM – 8 PM at Pybus Public Market
The annual Ride of Silence will be held beginning at 7 p.m. May 16, 2018, at Pybus Public Market, 7 N. Worthen St., in Wenatchee. Prior to the ride, the ceremony Ed Farrar will remember family and friends who have been lost or injured while riding their bicycles.
Wenatchee Valley Velo Club is again the local organizer of this international event, now in its 16th year.
This free ride asks participants to move no faster than 10 mph and to remain silent during the procession — all as a way to honor those who have been killed or injured while cycling on public roadways, and to raise awareness that cyclists have a legal right to public roadways. Many motorists are not aware that bicyclists are legally required to ride in the streets and roads, and not on sidewalks.
In the United States, the ride is held during National Bike Safety Month.
