Ride of Silence

May 16th was the day of the Ride of Silence, a worldwide remembrance ride for our fellow cyclists who have been killed while riding. From their website:
On May 16, 2007, at 7:00 PM, the Ride of Silenceā„¢ will begin in North America and roll across the globe. Cyclists will take to the roads in a silent procession to honor cyclists who have been killed or injured while cycling on public roadways. Although cyclists have a legal right to share the road with motorists, the motoring public often isn't aware of these rights, and sometimes not aware of the cyclists themselves.
In Tallahssee the ride was organized by Roger Holdener. Four cyclists participated, up from one sole cyclist last year. The ride started at Tom Brown Park at 6:00 p.m. and followed the Park-Call corridor to the downtown, then took Adams Street to the Capitol, where we stopped in front of the Old Capitol building for a photo.
Mike Dunaway, Dwight Kingsbury, Roger Holdener, and Chris Sands rode the Ride Of Silence in Tallahassee.
The four riders are Mike Dunaway, Dwight Kingsbury, Roger Holdener, and Chris Sands. Next year we hope to see another fourfold increase in participants.

it is tough to think that I could die riding my bicycle to work

but I guess that is why I am so quick to spit on each car or flip off each car that puts my life at risk
