Ride of Silence 

On one night in cities around the world, cyclists gather to ride in silence to raise awareness of cyclists' right to ride on the road and to honor the fallen cyclists no longer with us. We ride slowly and silently in hope to end the tragedy on our roads. BPAC invites you to join our friends at Spin Doctor Cyclewerks at 140 S. Hickory St in Bartlett at 6:45 pm to ride 10 miles in silence.
