Second memorial ride for Sylvia Bingham

Second Memorial ride for Sylvia Bingham to include Community Service Projects

A participatory celebration of the life of Sylvia Bingham, killed on September 15 in a traffic incident while riding her bike to work as a VISTA volunteer. Sylvia's Cleveland friends invite area cyclists and and non-cyclists alike to remember Sylvia's commitment to making her adopted home a better place; with a day of cycling, serving the community, and thoughtful discussion of what more we can do -- individually and collectively -- to improve bicycle traffic safety awareness here.

Rides of 5 to 25 miles will visit local community events to participate in bicycle safety education clinics, environmental remediation projects, and other community service activities; then return to Edgewater for food, fellowship, and an inclusive discussion of future plans.

Rides will be led (and followed) by experienced cyclists, and maps will be provided, but will be over open roads in normal city traffic. All riders are expected to obey all traffic laws; a mechanical bike safety check and traffic law briefing will be held at the start. Please dress appropriately for the weather, and helmets are required for the ride: a limited number of helmets will be available for $20 each at the start.
