2015 Ride of Silence

2015 Ride of Silence - Matzaluna Sanibel

(April 28, 2015 – Sanibel, FL) –  Matzaluna Italian Restaurant on Sanibel Island hosted the annual “Ride of Silence,” in conjunction with the Sanibel Bike Club and Billy’s Bikes. Riders were encouraged to arrive for a short educational program that will began at 6:15pm to enjoy discounted appetizers. The ride began at 7:00 and crossed over the first 2 bridges of the causeway and then did the turnaround under the main span and returned to Matzaluna. Matzaluna provided discounted food and drink for all riders.

Since May 2008, the Sanibel Bike Club has hosted a local “Ride of Silence” to honor fellow cyclists who have been killed or injured in cycling accidents and to raise awareness that everyone should share the road. The Ride of Silence is a worldwide event that takes place at 7 p.m. on the third Wednesday of May each year. Club members, friends, neighbors and the community are invited to ride in this short, silent, slow ride. Helmets required for all riders and front and tail lights are required if you plan to ride your bike home after dinner.

The initial Ride of Silence™

Was held in 2003 in Dallas and drew 1,000 cyclists in response to the death of Larry Schwartz by a school bus mirror earlier that same month.
