The beautiful weather on Wednesday of this past week brought a good turnout of 38 cyclists for the Ride of Silence in Peninsula on May 19 (part of the celebration of Cleveland Bicycle Week). Mike Petcher of the Center Cycles store in Medina said, "We rode silently and the silence gave us all much to think about- how much we love riding and what a shame that some have lost their lives to motorists."
Doug Charnock was on hand to snap a couple of photos:
Thanks for holding this event. I thought, as I rode, how I'd never noticed the sounds of the valley before. The forced silence really made me experience the moment of cycling like never before...ReplyDelete
