The WashCo BTC is hosting the 2nd Annual “Westside Ride of Silence” on Wednesday, May 21st starting at 7pm in Beaverton. Come and join cyclists worldwide in memory of those who have been injured or killed while cycling on public roadways.
We will gather at 6:30pm a Beaverton City Library and at 7PM start the funeral-like procession of cyclists riding a 6-mile loop around the city. We will pass ghost bikes along the way, representative of those people killed on our streets and roads in Washington County. This is in conjunction with the nation wide Ride of Silence happening on the same date everywhere.
We cordially invite you to join us in this tribute to the memories of those lost and raise awareness about the relationship between bicyclists to motorists as evidenced in the “And We Bike” campaign.
Please try and make it to either the westside or downtown events. Both begin at 7pm this Wed night for 1 hr.. Come and join cyclists worldwide in memory of those who have been injured or killed while cycling on public roadways.
