Riding a bicycle can be fun, but it can also be dangerous. People are often injured and sometimes involved in fatal accidents while biking to work or getting some afternoon exercise. In fact, just within this past year alone, six bicyclists were killed in the Delaware Valley. And the time to show your support and honor victims of bicycle accidents in Philadelphia and worldwide is right around the corner, with the annual Ride of Silence coming up tomorrow.

The annual Ride of Silence is an hourlong, silent (hence the name) bike ride through Center City that, this year, will be happening at the same time as 300 sister rides worldwide. Riders will meet at the Art Museum steps tomorrow, May 20th, at 6:30 p.m., the ride will leave at 7 and will return to the Art Museum around 8 p.m. Everyone is welcome and, since this event is promoting bike safety, don’t forget to bring your helmets and bike lights! You can find more information about the Ride of Silence 2015 here.
