Township Cyclists Participate in ‘Ride Of Silence’

About 30 bicyclists participated May 20 in the annual “Ride of Silence,” a slow bike tour to honor those cyclists killed or injured  while riding on public roads.

Organized by Mayor Chris Kelly – himself an avid cyclist – this was the first time the worldwide event has been held in the township.

The event was founded in 2003 after a cyclist in Dallas, Texas was killed by a passing bus. The ride, which is held during National Bike Month, “aims to raise theawareness of motorists, police and city officials that cyclists have alegal right to the public roadways,” according to the event’s Web site.
