Bike Friendly Windsor Essex, a local cycling advocacy group, will be hosting a Ride of Silence this Wednesday evening.
The annual memorial ride is dedicated to those who have been injured or killed while riding their bikes.
Cyclists will take to the roads in a slow, silent procession to honour those who have been hurt or have died due to accidents while cycling on public roadways.
Although cyclists have a legal right to share the road with motorists, the motoring public often isn’t aware of these rights, and sometimes are not aware of cyclists, say organizers.
The event aims to raise motorists’ awareness, demonstrating that cyclists have a legal right to the use of public roadways without fear.
Riders are asked to meet at The Willistead restaurant at Wyandotte and Chilver at 6pm. The ride will get underway at at 7pm.
Windsor Police will be escorting the ride and year and Families First funeral home will be providing a hearse that the riders will follow.
