Ride of Silence

I feel one of the classiest bicycle rides out there is the Ride of Silence. It's a great way to pay respect to those cyclists among us that have been injured or killed while cycling. It is also a great way to raise awareness that motorists need to share the road better with cyclists.

I had great intentions of starting a Ride of Silence in Vermillion this year, but my overflowing plate let is slide off the top. I feel guilty about that since we lost one of the most famed riders of this area this year already. My plan is to pay my respects to Randy Van Zee and all riders injured or killed this year all day long while on my bicycle.

Any of you in the Sioux Falls area I encourage to attend the Falls Area Bicyclists Ride of Silence.
