LANSING, Mich (WLNS) – Today Lansing will join over 300 cities across the world observing The Silent Ride. Today on 6 News This Morning organizer Tim Potter spoke with Chivon Kloepfer about the ride.
Potter explained that the Silent Ride is a silent bicycle ride honoring those who were seriously injured or killed while riding on roadways.
Hundreds of riders are expected to come out.
Attendees will gather at the Wells Hall courtyard on Michigan State’s campus no later than 6:00 pm for important instructions and to sign-in, etc.
Come earlier to be sure you’ve signed the waiver, tied on arm-bands (black, if you know someone who was hit and killed; red, if you or someone you know was hit and injured).
Participants will then roll off at 6:30 pm, and end at the Capitol steps.
Police escorts will accompany the group through the route to help maintain safety and guide riders through intersections.
