Ride of Silence is May 15

Naples Pathways Coalition and our partners invite the community to take part in the National Ride of Silence to honor cyclists who’ve been injured or killed while cycling, to lift awareness of the importance of bicycle safety, and to ask that everybody do their part to securely share the road.

Everyone will meet at Cambier Park (755 eighth Avenue S, Naples 34102) between 6 and 6:30 p.m., before heading out for the ride at 6:30. Helmets are required, and we are going to take a slow, hour-long ride in silence as we remember friends, family, and members of the community whose lives were lost or modified dramatically due to a crash while biking.

The community is inspired to affix on this meaningful ride. Many participants can be wearing their neon yellow NPC shirts for visibility and unity. For anyone without one, shirts can be available for a donation before and after the ride.

There isn’t a fee to take part in the Ride of Silence, but participants are asked to register at https://bit.ly/ROS2024. Donations can be accepted to assist advocate for the families of people killed while biking or those still struggling after a serious crash.
