Ride of Silence
May 18 @ 7:00 pm
The International Ride of Silence is held on the third Wednesday of May every year. The ride honors vulnerable road users who have been injured or killed by traffic violence while bicycling, raises awareness that bicyclists have a legal right to use the road, and reminds motorists to respectfully share the road with all users. Join cyclists worldwide in a silent, slow-paced ride to commemorate those who have been injured or killed while cycling on public roadways.
The Bicycle Coalition of Maine has been the state coordinator for the Ride of Silence since 2020, and each year we work with groups and individuals across the state to encourage greater ridership, while also holding our own ride in Portland.
Want to join our Portland ride on Wednesday, May 18, 2022 at 7 p.m.? Interested in other Ride of Silence events across the state? Want to plan your own ride? Visit this page to find out more + register.
