GLOBAL EVENT OVERVIEW & PHILIPPINE PARTICIPATION
http://www.rideofsilence.org/locations-international.php

The Ride of Silence is a free ride, hosted in cities worldwide, that aims to inform motorists, police and city officials that cyclists have a legal right to the public roadways.

The ride also honors those who have been killed or injured.

The 2003 Ride of Silence™ at White Rock Lake in Dallas drew 1,000 cyclists through word of mouth and email communication over a period of only ten days. There was no registration and no fees. Local media reported the ride to be incredibly moving as these cyclists rode in silence, occasionally wiping away a tear or patting a friend on the back.

Chris Phelan, a friend of Mr. Schwartz and the person responsible for starting this initiative, thought the ride was a one-time event. However, as word got out other cyclists began to contact him with a desire to do the same thing in their own communities.

RIDE OF SILENCE
(Global Organization)

MISSION

The mission of the world wide Ride of Silence is to honor bicyclists killed by motorists, promote sharing the road, and provide awareness of bicycling safety.

WHY DOES THIS ORGANIZATION EXIST?

* To HONOR those who have been injured or killed.
* To RAISE AWARENESS that we are here.
* To ask that we all SHARE THE ROAD.

OVERVIEW

The Ride of Silence is a free ride that asks its cyclists to ride no faster than 12 mph, wear helmets, follow the rules of the road and remain silent during the ride. No registration fees. The ride, aims to raise the awareness of motorists, police and city officials that cyclists have a legal right to the public roadways. The ride is also a chance to show respect for and honor the lives of those who have been killed or injured.

THIS RIDE IS FOR FREE. There is no registration, no sponsors, no prizes, no fees, and no talking (hand signals will used). This ride is a safe, responsible, professional, and mature response to the carnage on the roads we ride on. This ride is NOT an excuse for cyclists to act otherwise. This ride is NOT intended, advertised, or promoted as a race of any kind. Those who do not feel they can comply with the tenets of the ride, are asked NOT to attend.
