Ride of Silence

Last night was the ride of silence.  This is a worldwide event to reflect solidarity in safe and respectful biking.  To remember those killed or injured by automobiles, and to remind motorists that sharing the road is essential.  It's been almost a year since our Split Second in Slow Motion.  Due to that moment, B was pinned with a red arm band to wear as opposed to the black memorial armbands worn by most of the other riders.  I believe he was one of only a few in the 100 or so cyclists who wore that color last night.   
 This picture marks the first half of the group, the remainder are waiting to turn onto the road.

It was a moving experience to see the solidarity of this large group riding en masse.    As I say to B and his friends every time they leave....Ride Safe!
