We will ride in silence to honor cyclists who were killed or injured while riding and to promote sharing the road. The local Ride of Silence is part of a worldwide event. We will go no faster than 10-12 mph. The ride starts at 7 p.m. Ride of Silence Instructions and a poem reading will happen before the Ride of Silence. Riders should meet at the town mall area by 6:45 p.m.
Locally we ride in memory of Randall Vye, a bicyclist killed on Bath Road on May 11, 2001, Brendan Batson who was killed on Rt. 201A on May 26, 2001 and Joe Lamothe, who was killed on Rt. 196 in Lisbon in 2017.
