Upcoming: Inland Empire Ride of Silence
The Ride of Silence has become a worldwide annual ride, taking place the third Wednesday of May, in recognition of our friends, family and community members who have lost their lives while riding their bikes. Numerous of them take place around Southern California, from Pasadena, to Irvine, to Rancho Cucamonga, places in between and far afield. I have already noted the Pasadena ride in the Upcoming Events listing and now have some more specifics for the Inland Empire ride: Wednesday 21 May at the usual meeting spot, 7325 Day Creek Blvd, Rancho Cucamonga. Meet at 5:45, roll out at 6:00. In past years this ride has had a police escort - yes it can get quite large (as it should), but I have not heard anything about this year's ride. You can join the ride through the Cycling Connection Meet Up event page, and get more information, but it is not necessary. In fact I would say most people hear about it word of mouth and just show up. This is a slow paced parade ride intended for reflection; leave the ego's at home.
