Harrisonburg -- The Ride of Silence will begin in North America and roll across the globe. Today cyclists in Harrisonburg took part in a silent procession to honor cyclists who have been killed or injured while cycling on public roadways. Although cyclists have a legal right to share the road with motorists, the motoring public often isn’t aware of these rights, and sometimes not aware of the cyclists themselves.
Harrisonburg’s Ride of Silence started and ended Wednesday night at the University Commons on the EMU campus. Dozens of riders showed up to honor those who lost their lives because of a biking accident in our community. Wednesday's event was put on by The Shenandoah Valley Bicycle Coalition.
