Join Us - Ride of Silence May 18 6:30PM

Join us in leading a Portland-based Ride of Silence to recognize neighbors, families and friends who have been injured or killed while riding bicycles.

We are riding in recognition of Brian Duncan, who was struck on his bicycle by a person driving a car while in a marked and lit crosswalk at the intersection of North Delaware and Rosa Parks on March 30, 2016. Brian, an active member of the Arbor Lodge Neighborhood Association, loving husband and father of a two-year-old is recovering from a skull fracture, incomplete break of his C4 vertebra and paralysis in all but his left arm. 

Participants of all abilities are invited to join the procession. The event starts at 6:30PM at the southeast corner of Arbor Lodge Park (N Delaware and Dekum). A brief ceremony remembering family and loved-ones who lost their lives while riding their bicycle will be held, followed by ride protocol and safety instructions. The ride will return to Arbor Lodge Park around 7:30PM. The ride will not exceed 12 mph. Participants must wear helmets, are encouraged to bring headlights and taillights, and are invited to consider wearing:
• Names of riders you are riding in memory of printed and pinned to your back
• Black and/or red shirts, ribbons, arm bands, etc. Wear black to honor a cyclist who was killed, and red for one that was injured by a motorist.
