Mainland Start for Ride of Silence

Ride of Silence emblemThis year’s Miami Ride of Silence will start at the Miami Museum of Science (map here) and will avoid the Rickenbacker Causeway altogether. With lane restrictions in place on the Bear Cut Bridge, ride organizers Maria-Luisa De Jesus-Hoover and John Voss, of the Everglades Bicycle Club, plotted a route on Brickell Avenue, Biscayne Boulevard, and the Venetian Causeway.

This memorial ride for lost cyclists happens nationwide and abroad on May 15, and riders of all skill sets are welcome. Assemble in the museum parking at 6:30 and we’ll shove off at 7 p.m.  Remember that this is highly accessible from Metrorail or the M-Path, using the bridge at Vizcaya Station to cross U.S. 1. On the ride, cyclists are to confine themselves to the single right lane except when turning left.

  1. PLEASE REMEMBER: The Ride of Silence is a free ride that asks its cyclists to –
    ride no faster than 12 mph,
    wear helmets,
    follow the rules of the road and,
    remain silent during the ride.

    There are no sponsors and no registration fees. The ride, which is held during National Bike Month, aims to raise the awareness of motorists, police and city officials that cyclists have a legal right to the public roadways. The ride is also a chance to show respect for and honor the lives of those who have been killed or injured.
