The 10th annual Ride of Silence RTP Ride will start at the Research Triangle Park Headquarters, located at 12 Davis Drive, RTP. This event is sponsored and hosted by Bike Durham, Team MSFITS and The Research Triangle Foundation [The RTP]. 

 
WHY DOES THIS ORGANIZATION EXIST?
  • To honor those who have been injured or killed on bikes
  • To raise awareness for bike safety
  • To ask that we all "Share The Road"

 

All cyclists are welcome to participate and join members, bicycling clubs, charity teams, those who have survived collisions with motor vehicles, and those remembering cyclists who have been lost to these senseless collisions.  There will be a police escort provided by the Durham Reserve Police. 

We will leave promptly at 7:00pm after the reading of the Ride of Silence poem.  Black and red armbands will be provided – black in memory of those we have lost, and red bands worn by survivors.  Please arrive early enough to get your armband, sign in, and have your bike ready to roll by 7:00pm.
