Join us for the Tucson's Ride of Silence

On May 15, 2013 the Ride of Silence will begin in North America and roll across the globe. Cyclists will take to the roads in a silent procession to honor cyclists who have been killed or injured while cycling on public roadways. Although cyclists have a legal right to share the road with motorists, the motoring public often isn't aware of these rights, and sometimes not aware of the cyclists themselves.

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 of Silence is a free ride that asks its cyclists to ride no faster than 10 mph, wear helmets, follow the rules of the road and remain silent during the ride.

Riders who want to join in Tucson's Ride of Silence will gather at Ramada 20 at the Northwest corner of Reid Park just South of Broadway off of Country Club. Look for GABA signs along the road.

Arrival Time: 5:30 p.m

Departure Time: 6:00 p.m.

Pace: 10 mph or less

Distance: 10 miles

Route: north on Country Club, east on Broadway, south on Wilmot, west on 22nd and then north on Country Club.

Helmets are required

Contact : Wayne Cullop, [masked]

    I've never been able to find an online map of the ramadas for any of the Tucson parks. Dan, you're the map expert, do you know where a map can be found that shows the ramada numbers?

      Nope. We always gather at the northiest and westiest part of the park. Essentially Country Club and Campestre.

      The roofs of the ramadas show up pretty good on Google Earth. And no, they are not numbered there either.

    The 100 S. Country Club address will be deceptive for anyone who hasn't gone before. Ramada 20 is more like 600 S. Country Club.

    I'll be in San Carlos, Sonora. I'll see if they are having a Ride of Silence there.
