Ride of Silence on Wednesday May 17th at 6:30 pm in coordination with the international Ride Of Silence.

Participants are encouraged to ride with                      White Lights in Front & Red Lights in Rear

Add your voice to the call for respect on the roads.

The Ride will start and end at the Rockland County Courthouse in New City, the county seat.

The ride honors and remembers bicycle riders who have been killed or injured in collisions with cars and calls on everyone to share the road safely. We're gratified that no cyclists were killed or badly injured on Rockland County's roads in 2016, unlike in other recent years. It's hoped that can be attributed to the combination of growing awareness by motorists and the county's adoption of a Complete Streets initiative. Join us in remembering Edward Brophy, William "Matt" George, Alfred Zaldivar, Janet Martinez, Robert Carl Pinckert, Ennio Spiri and the many other Rockland County residents hurt and killed in collisions with motorists in the recent past. We ride to honor them; we ride to enforce the message for all road users that Mutual Respect Saves Lives.

Lights are encouraged - red lights on the rear, white lights on the front of your bike. Helmets are required. We will ride no faster than 12 mph, follow the rules of the road and remain silent during the ride. There are no sponsors and no registration fees for the Ride of Silence. We will ride 5.6 miles silently and single file. Police support will be provided.

Please ride with us to help call for respect on the roadways. And help spread the word — or help organize and promote this event. Police support will be provided for the RBC Ride of Silence.

Min. 3 ft. when passing bicyclists.
