Bike Windsor Essex invited locals to join on the city’s 8th Annual Ride of Silence Wednesday evening, a global event in support of cyclists killed or hurt while biking. Bicycle riders of all ages took part in this event, where they rode a route on the road in silence to show their respect for those who have been lost from bicycling.

Riders wore red or black arm bands: red signifying they have been in a cycling accident themselves, or black for showing solidarity for other riders who have been hurt or killed while cycling. Cyclists were led and followed by a hearse in order to emphasize the consequences of not following the rules of the road.

The Ride of Silence is a free event, but donations were accepted to go towards making Windsor-Essex more bicycle friendly.

Bike Windsor Essex Board Members Amy, Christina, and Jennifer stand with the Executive Director, Lori, and Dale, the Chair of the group.
