The New River Valley Bicycle Association and Pathways for Radford present the 2018 Ride of Silence on Wednesday, May 16, 2018 in the Central Lumber Parking Lot in Radford, VA.

Schedule of Events:
• 6:30 pm – staging begins

• 6:59 pm – moment of noise
• 7:00 pm– Ride of Silence begins

Join cyclists worldwide in a silent, slow-paced ride in honor of those who have been hurt or killed while cycling on public roadways. We will have a police escort along the 7-mile route and will ride at a slow pace. Though solemn, the group ride is enjoyable and inspirational to riders of all ages, experience and ability.

Note: Helmets are required.

The New River Valley ride was first organized in 2008 after the untimely death of Fess Green, a local professor and veteran cyclist.

If you cannot ride, we welcome your support for bike safety. Join us along the route on Main Street (from Sal’s and El Charro to the Dedmon Center).

Participants are invited to gather at Sal’s and El Charro following the ride to commemorate the 11th annual ride. Please feel free to share this with friends and family!

The Central Lumber Parking Lot is located at 709 West Main Street in Radford, VA in front of Sal's and El Charro.
