Event Name: Ride of Silence
Event Start Date: May 19 2010
Start Time: Wheels rolling at 7:00:00 PM
Distance: 5 miles
Route Map: http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=3699221
Notes: The Portland version will meet at Holladay Park Lloyd Center at 6:30 and roll out at 7 p.m. after brief remarks by whoever wants to speak.
Five mile route across the Broadway Bridge stopping at the bus incident on Broadway and Glisan. Crossing back via the Morrison Bridge and ending at Holladay Park. Please note this ride will follow the rules of the road. There is not a police escort nor will there be corking at intersections.

I would also like to note we may have, by request, several “bike” police along on the ride. I thought this was a very cool thing.

There will be no SAG support and no designated “sweep” riders. Each rider will be responsible for his or her own safety.
