Ride of Silence
6:30 p.m. Wednesday at Trinity Park
The Ride of Silence is an annual, worldwide event to honor those who have been injured or killed while cycling on public roads. The ride will be held in complete silence, using only arm signals to communicate. The group will ride 8-12 mile at about 12 mph. Meet up at 6:30 p.m., roll out at 7. Helmets are required for this ride. Wear a black armband in solidarity of lost cyclists. If you have been injured by a vehicle, please wear a red armband.

Bike to Work Day
As we’ve outlined in a previous post, you can organize your own Bike to Work Day ride.
Work with your employer to lead a ride to your workplace and encourage your coworkers to join you. If you need help finding a safe route to work, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We can help you come up with the best route for you and your coworkers.
For Near Southsiders: Therre’s already a route you can join! A ride with the mayor will take off at 7:45 a.m. from the bike share station at Magnolia and Lipscomb to Intermodal Transportation Center downtown.
For those interested in volunteering: We’re still looking for people to hand out fresh fruit and water bottles 7:15-9 a.m. at several booths. The city of Fort Worth will provide the supplies. Email us to let us know you want to help.
