On May 21, 2008, at 7:00 PM, the Ride of Silence? will begin in North America and roll across the globe. Cyclists will take to the roads in a 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 isn't aware of these rights, and sometimes not aware of the cyclists themselves.
The Ride Of Silence is a free ride that asks its cyclists to ride no faster than 12 mph and remain silent during the ride. There is no brochure, no sponsors, no registration fees and no t-shirt. The ride, which is held during Bike Safety month, aims to raise the awareness of motorists, police and city officials that cyclists have a legal right to the public roadways. The ride is also a chance to show respect for those who have been killed or injured.Please check the resources on this site. If there is a Ride Of Silence in your area, we encourage you to join them.

Pictures can be found at Roger's House of Photos.
A tremendous success. I want to thank all the support from the Lansing Community, the Police, EMS, Street Department, School District, City Hall, and the Mayor. The event has improved due to the efforts of your community spirit and the efforts of Teri Chang, Amy Whittaker, Stacie Louthan, Mike Patterson, Lamont Cranston, Joe Tripodi, EMan, Chris Locke and Mark Thomas. This event will continue next year but at a different venue in Lansing. Through the efforts of these persons this event is growing and becoming a mainstay in the area for racing. See you on the roads, hopefully very soon, Roger.

Kansas City's Bike Week is May 10 - 18. Over sixty events are planned. One of the most popular and most important is the Car-Free Challenge (formally Commuter Challenge)
The Car-Free Challenge is a friendly competition that encourages Kansas Citians to reduce the number of trips that we take by ourselves in our automobiles. Great prizes are available for the folks that log the most miles and/or the most trips.
To join our team or form a team of your own with your co-workers, go to http://kcbike.info/bikeweek/challenge.php
You can even go solo if you like. But, Just go car free!
