Ride of Silence Wrap Up

More than 200 cyclists rode in honor of bicyclists killed by motor vehicles in the 4th Annual Ride of Silence. The weather held nicely and we should have more video and photos up tomorrow.

On the narrow streets of Philadelphia 200 riders get noticed. On some streets bikes stretched for 3-4 full city blocks. Some pedestrians cheered us on, others may have mistaken the silent ride for Critical Mass.

The ride was held at 7PM in over 250 other cities around the world.
