Thank you to all who participated. We rode in solidarity with all others around the globe to honor those who have lost their lives or were injured riding a bike. Our 7pm start took us west on Central then east on Santa Clara and Encinal on the main roads of our Island. We were 15 strong, rode 8.5 miles in silence at a < 12mph pace. Many had commented post ride it was hard to do, slow and silent . We are a social, chatty group and want to connect and communicate. This ride was a different connection more of a reflection. We even attracted a casual rider curious about our silent bicycle possession. Next year i will certainly promote this with more effort in hopes to double the participation! Ride on!
