Fourth Plymouth Ride of Silence May 18

Plymouth's 4th annual Ride of Silence will be held May 18 at 7 p.m.

The US is just two states away from having full country participation. This year Wisconsin has 13 rides taking place at the same time.

Cyclists will take to the roads in slow, silent procession to honor cyclists who have been killed or injured while cycling on public roadways. Although cyclists have a legal right to share the road with motorists, the motoring public often times are not aware of these rights, and sometimes not aware of the cyclists themselves.

The Ride of Silence is a free event that asks cyclists to ride no faster than 12 m.p.h. and remain silent during the ride. The Ride, which is held during National Bike Safety Month and Week, aims to raise awareness of motorists, police and city officials that cyclists have a legal right to the public roadways.

The Sheboygan County ride, which starts at Back Door Bike Shop in Plymouth, will consist of cyclists of all riding levels. This is a simple ride of only 8 miles and families are welcome.

Coordinator, Dan Shiley will head up the ride. T-shirts will be given to the first 25 riders to arrive at the shop at 6:30 p.m. Additionally, Shiley has teamed up with an organization called 3 Feet Please. This is a law in Wisconsin and their logo is printed on the Ride of Silence t-shirts. There also are stickers to be passed out.

All riders must wear helmets. Lights and bright clothing are also strongly recommended to show motorists cyclists are taking precautions to increase visibility and abide by all applicable laws.
