Ride of Silence

Join other Nashville cyclists in this silent slow-paced ride (max. 12 mph) in honor of those who have been injured or killed while bicycling on public roadways. In 2003, Chris Phelan organized the first Ride Of Silence in Dallas after endurance cyclist Larry Schwartz was hit by the mirror of a passing bus and was killed.


The ride will depart Centennial Park at 7:00 PM CST. Riders should begin meeting at 6:45 for the 7:00 PM roll out.


This is not a Slow Ride event.

    Beautiful evening and friendly bunch of cyclists (their amiableness came through even though everyone was silent). Good ride that took us downtown through the neon lights and partying crowds on Lower Broadway. Thanks to the leaders for organizing this event. It was well-done.

    I wasn't able to find the length of the ride posted.I'm searching from my phone though so maybe I'm missing it. Does anyone know the mileage? Also are we planning to meet up and ride as a group?

      Hello Carey, thanks for the mileage. I understand the ride is silent I just wasn't sure if the group was actually going to meet up when we get there and if I should then be looking around for the group or just fall into the ride where ever. Either is fine. I just know some group keep careful track of who arrives when you rsvp for a meet
