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. There are no registration fees. The ride aims to raise awareness of safety issues facing all road users. It is also a chance to show respect for and honor the lives of those who have been killed or injured. This year, Muscle Powered has widened the scope of this event to include walkers/pedestrians.
