Ride of Silence logo
With thousands of cyclists in Seattle, this free and public event remains the single opportunity for the community to come together, to honor our brother and sister cyclists.

The goal is simple, for every cyclist to know about this event
and have the opportunity to participate.

2017 will be Seattle's 13th Ride of Silence experience.

We have personally invited many individuals to ride with us and encourage you to invite your friends and family, team members and coworkers.

WE NEED YOU!! This is very much a grassroots effort. There are no sponsors, no fees, no corporations, no merchandising. There are opportunities to donate to the the costs and to volunteer your time and talents. It takes many hands to make this happen successfully, from flyers and posters, sidewalk chalking, route planning & testing, and ride marshals.

With a large number of cyclists,
having a dozen volunteer ride marshals
really helps with routing and safety.
