Somber Note...The Ride of Silence

This ride was held in advance of Bike To Work Day, but I didn't get a chance to blog on it, and only got some feedback on it today, hence this post.

The Ride of Silence is an attempt to remember those who have been killed in crashes on the road. You can read more about it on the link. You will see several names that may be familiar, WTOP has covered many of these cases, going back more than a decade.

I asked participants to get in touch with me, and one rider who took part in the Rockville ride emailed me to say that "Overall, it was a great ride" and that 19 riders took part. They had several Rockville City police officers riding along with them.
