Consider coordinating a ride in your own neighborhood to get seen by more people
in more neighborhoods, and make it easier to get more riders to participate,
without creating even more traffic crossing OC to get to Fullerton, Irvine or San Clemente!
Contact us for help.
At 7 pm Local
Time we will join other communities across the planet in
then cue up for a 7 pm slow paced, single file, silent commemoration
to the riders who are no longer with us,
especially those who were disabled or killed in traffic.
we will share this hour with each other, and know that
thousands across the planet will also have marked the hour in their own time zone;
but also raise awareness among the many local motorists
who will be witnesses of our sombre parade.
& have plenty of reflectors & lights...
In case you don't know, California law changed and lights
& reflectors are now required after dusk - even on bike ways and sidewalks.
Please wear an arm band; Black in solidarity - or Red if you have been injured by a motorist.
(Inexpensive head / wrist band sets or cut up tube socks work well...)
Please let us know of any other Rides of Silence
in Orange County so we can add them here
and send us comments & photos if you ride or see us...
