On May 18, 2016 at 7:00 PM, the Ride of Silence will traverse and unite the globe as nothing before it. Cyclists will take to the roads in a silent procession to honor cyclists who have been killed or injured while cycling on public roadways. Although cyclists have a legal right to share the road with motorists, the motoring public often isn't aware of these rights, and sometimes not aware of the cyclists themselves.

In 2003,Chris Phelan organized the first Ride of Silence in Dallas after endurance cyclist Larry Schwartz was hit by the mirror of a passing bus and was killed.

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 national sponsors and no registration fees. The ride, which is held during National Bike Month , 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.

MARYVILLE TN RIDE OF SILENCE, BLOUNT COUNTY COURTHOUSE
MAY 18, 2016, 7 PM

On Wednesday evening at 7pm bicyclists assembled at the Blount County Courthouse in Maryville Tennessee to roll-out for the annual Ride of Silence in memory of their friends, family, 6and associates killed or injured by motor vehicle operators. The Maryville Ride of Silence is one of over 300 rides that occur worldwide on the 3rd Wednesday of May each year. In 2015 an estimated 12,000 riders from 49 states, 20 countries, and 7 continents participated. Over 700 cyclists are killed each year while riding. Most of them occur in our cities, and suburbs.
With this ride, The Jeff Roth Cycling Foundation hopes to educate motorists that cyclists have the legal right to the road and to watch out for cyclists whenever they see them. The Ride of Silence is similar to a funeral procession. The ride will be a slow paced 8 mile loop of Maryville, ridden no faster than 12mph. There will be no talking, only silence, to remember our fallen brothers and sisters. Black armbands are often worn in memory of those who have been killed; red armbands may be worn by those injured while riding.

The Maryville Ride of Silence is sponsored by The Jeff Roth Cycling Foundation. The ride is open to all individuals interested in participating. Participants are asked to arrive at the Blount County Courthouse by 6:30 pm with ride departing promptly at 7pm. Helmets are required, front and rear lights are strongly recommended. Additional information about the ride can be obtained by contacting The Jeff Roth Cycling Foundation @ (865) 309-5723.
