"Think Globally - Act Locally"
Consider coordinating a ride in your town town to get seen by more people
in more neighborhoods, and make it easier to get more riders to participate,
without creating even more vehicle traffic crossing OC to get to a Ride of Silece!
Contact us for help & being listed here:
Help in coordinating is offered here:
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.
so wear your reflective & HiVis day glow,
& have plenty of reflectors & lights...
LIGHTS AND REFLECTORS - CVC 21201(d)
In case you don't know, California law requires bicycles to have lights
& reflectors after dusk - even on bike ways and sidewalks.
Many run extra lights for safety and
especially this night to draw even more attention to o rolling march...
HELMETS - CVC 21212
Helmets are required in California by all riders and passengers under 18.
Helmets are strongly recommended for all riders.
Some Rides of Silence locations will require helmets for ALL riders.
Optional tradition: Many wear an arm band; Black in solidarity -
or Red if you have been injured in an incident with 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...
