The 2021 Ride of Silence

May 19, 2021 at 7:00 PM local time worldwide

We are anticipating that the Ride of Silence (ROS) scheduled for May 19, 2021 will return this year as a "live in-person event"  leaving from the Maryville Courthouse as in previous years. Riders not wishing to participate in this "guided ride" are encouraged to undertake their individual rides as done in 2020 in memory of persons injured or killed by drivers of motor vehicle while riding bikes. Each ride should be carried out according to guidelines established by the national ROS organization precisely at 7pm on Wednesday, May 19, 2021. Riders are encouraged to send an e-mail report and any associated images to the Jeff Roth Cycling Foundation c/o . We will compile the reports and forward them to the national organization for posting on the ROS website. Please visit the ROS website, for more information.
