Location: Fawick Park
The 2018 Ride of Silence is an annual event to honor bicyclists 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.
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 registration fees. The ride 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.
The ride is led by Falls Area Bicyclists, and two uniformed members of the Sioux Falls Police Department will also be riding with the group this year.
The ride begins at 7 p.m. at Fawick Park.
