From the Bike Lafayette website:

The Ride of Silence is TONIGHT, May 15, 2013.

The Ride of Silence is a worldwide event that aims to:

  1. Show respect for and honor the lives of those who have been killed or injured while cycling on public roadways, and
  2. Raise the awareness of motorists, police and city officials that cyclists have a legal right to share the road.

The  ride will begin at 7 pm from the Mickey Shunick Ghost Bike Memorial at the intersection of St. Landry and Dean Streets, ending at Parc Sans Souci on Vermillion Street. The ride will follow a 9.5 mile route through central Lafayette. See http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/193939290

Participants are asked to ride no faster than 12 mph, wear helmets, have lights, follow the rules of the road, and remain silent during the ride.

The event is free and open to the public

 

All those interested in participating should meet before 7pm at the Ghost Bike Memorial, ready to ride.

If you are a motorist on the route, your patience is appreciated.  Please follow the rules of the road.  If you are unsure of the legality of bicycles on the roadways, or of your responsibility while sharing the roadway with bicyclists, please brush up on the rules/regulations/laws pertaining to cyclists.
