NWO Ride of Silence on May 19: Virtual event remembers cyclists lost on Ohio roads

In 2020, a total of 20 people died from cycling-related deaths in Ohio. In memory of those killed or injured, the Northwest Ohio Ride of Silence will take place on Wednesday, May 19.

This is the 12th year that the Ride of Silence takes place in Toledo. Other events will take place on the same day in both Bowling Green and Findlay. As with last year’s event, the 2021 Ride of Silence will be a virtual event with a live program broadcast on YouTube and Facebook from 6.45 p.m.

Participating drivers will be asked to take the route of their choice on 19 May from 7 p.m. on their own or with their families. Drivers can take photos of themselves attending the event and post them on social media (using the hashtag # RideofSilence2021) or on the official Ride of Silence Facebook page.

People who are unable to attend on May 19th can drive as a tribute at any time during the month of May.

You can find more information about the event online at wearetraffic.org/Ride-of-Silence or aufrittofsilence.org. Participants can watch a recording of the live stream retrospectively on the NW Ohio Ride of Silence event page.
