Bike Week: Ride of Silence

Century Cycles, the Medina County Bicycle Club and the Akron Bicycle Club are inviting people to join them in a Ride of Silence in Peninsula, Ohio on May 19, 2010. That evening, Rides of Silence will be taking place in Cleveland and around the world to honor those who have been injured or killed while cycling on public roadways and to raise awareness of cyclists' legal rights to share the road with motorists. The Peninsula Ride of Silence will begin at the Lock 29 Overflow Parking Lot in Peninsula, just off Route 303 in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Cyclists will ride south on Akron-Peninsula Road for 12-15 miles at a silent and slow 12 mph pace. It's a cause especially important to the crew at the Century Cycles store in Medina because a longtime customer was killed by a car while riding his bicycle in Medina county in 2007.

Helmets are required. This event is free and open to the public. No registration necessary. For more information, please call Century Cycles in Medina at 330-722-7119. Or click here.
