Annual Ride of Silence to Remember and Honor Fallen Bicyclists is Wednesday, May 18th

The Annual Ride of Silence is Wednesday May 18, 2016. The annual Ride of Silence honors those that have been injured or killed in a bicycle collision or crash. Now in its thirteenth year, the Ride of Silence has grown to be a true nationwide event. But while the support of our nation's cycling community is positive, the fact the Ride of Silence becomes more personal to families nationwide every year is heart breaking. 

The Chicago Ride of Silence will leave from Daley Plaza at approximately 6:30 p.m. after gathering at 6:00 p.m. Please go to the Chicago Ride of Silence website for more information. A special thanks to Elizabeth Adamczyk of Ride of Silence - Chicago for her tireless efforts in promoting the Ride of Silence and making bicycling safer in Chicago and throughout Illinois.

The preventable deaths of bicyclist are tragic results of what happens when motorists fail to share the road and respect bicyclists. The Illinois Bicycle Lawyers at Keating Law Offices are proud to support the efforts of the Ride of Silence and to act as an advocate for bicyclists throughout Illinois.
