Atlanta's Ride of Silence happens Wednesday

" width=

Atlanta cyclists will gather near Piedmont Park on Wednesday evening to remember fellow bike riders killed or injured by motorists on public roadways.

Details from the Atlanta Ride of Silence Facebook page:

Join cyclists worldwide in a silent slow-paced ride (max. 12 mph/20 kph) in honor of those who have been injured or killed while cycling on public roadways.

For Atlanta riders, meet at Charles Allen & 10th at 6:45pm. Please wear a black armband to honor those who have fallen, we'll have some on hand as well. We will have a sign-up sheet you can sign to indicate if you're riding in memory of someone in particular. A few words will be said, then our ride will leave promptly at 7pm.

To sign up as a confirmed guest, visit the Atlanta Ride of Silence Facebook page. For more information about the worldwide event, visit the official Ride of Silence website. If you're interested in spreading the word about Wednesday's event, check out the organization's blog and resources page. Both have templates for posting information on sites like Craig's List, logos you can download and other organizing materials.
