BEND, OR -- Commute Options is inviting everyone to attend the 12th annual Ride of Silence, Wednesday evening in Bend.
Kim Curley with Commute Options says the global event is designed to honor cyclists who have been injured or killed on public roadways. Locally, the event has not gained much attention in the past. "Over 300 rides are taking place this year, worldwide," Curley says. "It's been growing quietly in Bend, but organizers are getting the word out this year."
The silent, slow-paced 5.6-mile ride through downtown Bend will start at 7:00 p.m. tomorrow.
Cyclists are encouraged to meet at Mirror Pond Plaza at 6:30 p.m. Bike helmets are required.
