The international ride of silence that sweeps the globe in May is back next Wednesday in Ottawa. The “Ride of Silence” sees cyclists come together in cities and towns across the globe to silently pedal a brief distance in memory of fellow bikers that have been injured or killed on the roads.
The event HONOURS those who have been injured or killed, RAISES AWARENESS that bikes are here and asks that we all SHARE THE ROAD.
The international ride saw 315 events take place worldwide in 2014. Lets hope there are even more in 2015
Francis Ouimet is the organizer of the Ottawa ride. He invites riders to gather on Laurier Ave in front of Ottawa City Hall at 6:30 pm and the ride begins at 7 pm, rain or shine. The route as per last year will be two loops of the Laurier St segregated bike path from City Hall to Bronson.
