To RAISE AWARENESS that we are here
To ask that we all SHARE THE ROAD
Where: Irvine Civic Center
Route: Flat 9.7 mile loop around Irvine; on-street bike lanes and off street bike way:
Repeat of the same route used since 2006; run East on Alton then return on the
San Diego Creek bike way so we can be fully regrouped by the time we get back to the start.
Irvine’s Police Department has been invited to participate
and provide support in escorting again for the ride.
Where: Urban Bicycle Outfitters – North San Clemente Metrolink station
( on-street bike lanes and segregated ‘protected’ side path)
Where: Fullerton Downtown Plaza; Fullerton Museum Center
Route: Flat loop around Fullerton to CSUF & back; on-street & bike lanes: Route details to follow
We have had fatalities all over OC since last year’s Ride of Silence
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 having
a unique ride which will bring increased awareness to the streets of our home towns –
focusing on the numbers of cyclists who are killed and injured
by motorists who do not safely share the road.
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.
