Greater Lansing Host 10th Annual Ride of Silence

LANSING - The Greater Lansing Area hosted their 10th annual Ride of Silence event on Wednesday night.

The Greater Lansing Ride of Silence is a silent 9 mile ride held in remembrance of injured and fallen cyclist in the community and across the globe. All riders are required to wear helmets during the event and all are welcome to ride.

Ride of Silence is a global event host at hundreds of different locations across the world. League of Michigan Bicyclist Executive Director John Lindenmayer has participated in the Greater Lansing Ride of Silence for the past 10 years. Lindenmayer explained, “alarmingly bicyclist fatalities are up 81% since 2014. We saw 38 deaths last year in our state.”

Lindenmayer went on to say while the event is a great way to honor fallen cyclist, League of Michigan Bicyclist and their partners are hoping to take this support and momentum and turn it into action with recent legislation introduced at the State Capitol.
