Ride of Silence (RoS)
Each year, the WCCC participates in the Ride of Silence, a worldwide ride that occurs on the same day and that honors riders who have passed away or been injured while cycling. This year, the RoS is on Wednesday, May 17 at 6PM. We depart from the usual parking lot and you should be allowed to park freely in this lot after 5PM.
Please note the RoS is a slow (10mph) ride covering 10 miles, largely 2 loops through West Chester. We encourage people to wear a black arm band or black arm warmer on their left arm. The ride is ridden in COMPLETE SILENCE - no vocal commands at all. We will obey all traffic laws but will only use hand signals to communicate. Expect to ride your brakes for most of the ride and arrive by 5:45PM if possible so we can get a photo which the worldwide RoS organizers ask us to share.
Thanks in advance to those who can join as we honor our fallen fellow cyclists.
