BWAM has organized a Ride of Silence in Missoula for that past several years. This year’s Ride of Silence will be held Wed., May 15, 2013 at 7:00 pm. This international event was begun by Chris Phelan in 2002 to honor a friend who was killed in a bike/motor vehicle crash. Chris has now created a petition on the White House petition page.

We encourage you to sign on to this petition and participate in this year’s Ride of Silence wherever you may be. This petition needs a total of 100,000 signatures  by Feb 15, 2013 so that the White House will review and respond. Petition text:

Get on a bicycle and ride one of the Rides Of Silence with the rest of the country and the world, May 15, 2013, 7 pm

We respectfully petition the President and his staff to join The Ride Of Silence on May 15, 2013, 7pm for the boldest bike ride in history. There are locations in all 50 states, so there will be one near where ever the President is traveling. This free, slow (12 MPH), and silent ride, for a short distance, is a simultaneous collection of quiet statements in support of cyclists’ right to safe travel. On one night in cities around this country and the world, cyclists gather annually to ride in silence to raise awareness of cyclists’ right to the road and to honor cyclists killed by motorists. 2012 Ride Of Silence: 319 locations world-wide, 50 U.S. states, 20 countries, 6 continents, 0 words spoken, a million powerful memories. Chris Phelan, Founder, www.rideofsilence.org. One day, one time.
