2023 Ride of Silence in Pictures
The Greensboro Ride of Silence is part of a world-wide annual event uniting bicyclists globally in honoring those who have been injured or killed while cycling on public roadways. Thus, the ride raises awareness of cyclists' presence on roads and encouraging motorists to share the road.
BIG has organized this annual ride for the past eighteen years. The Greensboro Police Department's Bike Patrol officers are dedicated to the meaning behind the ride and participate with us each year. The Bike Patrol leads the ride, changing traffic lights to green so that the group does not have to stop and so that everyone remains together as one group.
The 2023 ride had close to two hundred participants, a great turnout that made a powerful statement.
