Spokane cyclists will be riding in silence this Wednesday evening. The Ride of Silence, which is held in cities across the world to honor those who have been injured or killed while cycling on public roads, occurs every year on the third Wednesday in May.
Participants are asked to ride no faster than 12 mph and remain silent during the ride. The 3.4 mile ride begins at 6pm at the corner of Riverside and Howard. With no sponsors or registration fees, organizers hope people will be encouraged to come out and support their message of sharing public roadways.
