To honor bicyclists killed by motorists,
promote sharing the road,
and provide awareness of bicycling safety.

That is what the people behind the Ride of Silence have been doing for the last 16 years, by organizing silent, no-drop, rides of remembrance across the world. Tim Potter, (the super-volunteer behind the website), joins us to explain the origins of the Ride of Silence and why it is such a powerful reflective experience.

To support the good work that Ride of Silence is doing, you can start by participating in your local ride (or by organizing one if there isn't one already) and by donating to their cause. By participating you'll help shine a light on road safety for all users and you'll increase your connection with your immediate community. We all benefit from safer roads, so let's spread the word.

Other Topics Discussed: Richard Tom Foundation, League of American Bicyclists, White Rock Lake, TX, and Vision Zero.
