Many cyclists around the globe have fallen or been injured while riding a bicycle. And in honor and memory of those people, major cities around the world do a bike ride called “The Ride of Silence”. The ride is generally 10 miles or so and passes by those that have been killed in the City of Chicago or which ever city held. It is generally held annually on the 3rd Wednesday into the month of May. During the ride, participates are asked to remain silent, show respect to the local victims and remember the dangers of the road.
