Michigan Rides of Silence 2019

Tonight, multiple communities in Michigan will join in the Ride of Silence, an annual ride that happens around the world to honor people who have been killed or injured while riding a bicycle on a public highway or road.  Additionally, the Ride of Silence is intended to serve as a reminder, or raise awareness, of the presence of bicycles and the right of bicyclists to use public roadways.
