Wednesday, May 20th, 2020 - 7pm
Purpose: Silent ride to commemorate bicyclists killed or injured while riding and part of a world-wide event urging everyone, cyclists and motorists, to “share the road”.
Ride Location: Ypsilanti – 7pm, May 20th - Due to the pandemic, there will not be an organized Ride Of Silence (ROS) group ride in Ypsilanti in 2020, only solo or household rides. So start your 2020 ROS from your home or anywhere you want.
Ride Length: Suggest a 30-60 minute ride.
Showing Solidarity With Cyclists That Were Struck: Wear a black armband, or if you have been hit while riding, a red armband.

Cost: The ride is free.
Registration: No pre-registration.
On The Ride: All participants are asked to wear a bicycle helmet and to obey all traffic laws, including stopping at all stop signs and traffic signals. We are trying to set an example of the phrase “same roads, same rules!
