Wednesday, May 17, cyclists across the country participated in the National Ride of Silence. The National Ride of Silence consists of hundreds of slow paced rides across the country that are done in complete silence to raise awareness and remember those that have been lost or injured in cycling accidents. WSI riders were present at rides in both Marshall and Battle Creek. Rides were held in Kalamazoo and other local cities as well. The ride had a even more somber significance this year as we approach the one year anniversary of the accident in Kalamazoo which took the lives 5 and injured 4 other cyclists.
