The Sixth Annual Ride of Silence will be held May 21 at Central Bucks West High School parking lot at 6:30 p.m.
The event, which includes a slow, six-mile ride through Doylestown, is held in honor of cyclists who have been killed or injured while biking. Riders will be escorted by police.
The goal of the ride, according to organizers, is to raise awareness that bicycles and motorists must share the road safely. Doylestown’s ride is co-sponsored by the Central Bucks Bicycle Club and Doylestown Borough.
Doylestown’s Ride of Silence is not the only event of its kind. Local riders join others throughout the globe—from as far away as Australia and Uganda—in an international effort to promote cycling safety.
