Honor Fallen Cyclists at the Ride of Silence on May 18th

On May 18th, 2011, the Ride of Silence will be happening in every major city across the globe to honor cyclists who have been injured or killed, to raise awareness, and to ask that we all share the road.  This year’s Providence ride is in honor of Brown student, Paige Hicks, who was tragically killed last summer while participating in a cross country ride for affordable housing. Everyone of all ages is welcome to join the ride, regardless of skill level.

The schedule is as follows:

6:15pm – Opening ceremony, Brown University Front Green at Waterman and Prospect St.
7:00pm – RIDE
8:00pm – Reception, Multipurpose room at Brown University, Stephen Robert ’62 Campus Center at Faunce House, Brown and Waterman St.

The route is 8 miles long. We will ride slowly, silently, and following all rules of the road. Helmets are required to participate! Let’s raise awareness for road safety. We can make a difference.
